Mexico City, Mexico — The Ministry of Foreign Relations (SRE) has requested that the U.S. extend its land travel restrictions into Mexico for another month amid the growing concern of Covid-19 figures in the United States.
The announcement of the request came from the Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores (SRE) who explained that the proposal to carry on with the current land travel restrictions at the border has been made, adding that it would be the same scheme that has been in place since March 21. The SRE has requested the border restrictions remain in place until October 21.
“After reviewing the development of the spread of # COVID19, Mexico proposed to the United States the extension, for one more month, of the restrictions on non-essential land transit on the common border.
“The restrictions will remain in the same terms as they have been developed since their implementation on March 21. Both countries will coordinate health measures in the border region that will be in effect until 11:59 p.m. October 21, 2020,” the SRE announced.
It was in March that land travel between Mexico and the United States was partially closed, allowing transit only for trade, labor and health issues.
