Travel Restricted at the U.S.-Mexico Border, Joint Initiative to Combat the COVID-19 Pandemic

Travel Restricted at the U.S.-Mexico Border, Joint Initiative to Combat the COVID-19 Pandemic

As the worldwide situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues we would like to update our partners and clients in Mexico. Co-Production International is monitoring the situation closely and will provide updates as things change on the ground in Mexico.


Status of Coronavirus in Mexico as of March 19th, 2020:

  • Mexico has 164 confirmed cases of COVID-19 as of March 19th at 7pm.

Travel Restricted at the U.S.-Mexico – Trade and Commerce NOT Affected

The U.S. President announced during a press conference today that travel will be restricted between the U.S.-Mexico border to essential travel only. The order goes into effect at midnight on Saturday, March 21, 2020.

Essential travel includes business, healthcare, and work-related needs, and for legal U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents. Trade and commerce aren’t to be affected. This is similar to the new restrictions between the U.S. and Canada announced on Wednesday.

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said, "We want to make sure cargo continues, trade continues, healthcare workers continue to be able to traverse that border. But tourism, some recreational activities and other things need to stop during this crisis." Wolf added, "Let me be clear that neither of these agreements with Canada or Mexico applies to lawful trade or commerce. Essential commerce activities will not be impacted. We will continue to maintain a strong and secure economic supply chain across our borders.”

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said U.S. citizens "should arrange immediate return" unless they intend to remain abroad for a time. "If you choose to travel, it may well be fairly disruptive," he said.

We don’t have details yet on how this will be enforced or how you are to prove your travel is essential. CPI will make an announcement as soon as it becomes available.
