A lot has changed since the days when Americans could just walk into Mexico and start blending in. Today, we have to abide by a whole slew of rules to get across the border—and some of them are surprisingly strict. For example, you need a passport if you’re flying into Mexico. And even though you may have a Mexican driver’s license, you may not be able to use it to cross the border. Why? Because your country of origin is likely not Mexico. If that wasn’t confusing enough, let’s take a look at what qualifies you as a Mexican citizen. You need to be born in Mexico or have at least one parent who is Mexican (unless you were born abroad to a Mexican parent). If that still isn’t clear, don’t worry; we will provide some helpful tips on how to get around these rules and fly into Mexico without issue.
