What You Need When Traveling to Mexico

Our neighbors to the south welcome visitors from the United States, but they also want you to have sufficient funds for your stay and set a cap of $10,000 for entry or exit from the country. It’s also good to familiarize yourself with the exchange rate between pesos and dollars.


Your passport should not only be valid for the duration of your stay but also should have at least 6 months of validity beyond your intended departure date. This precaution ensures a smooth entry into the country. As always, check your passport's expiration date well in advance and renew it if needed.

Also, passport cards cannot be used when traveling by air, and your passport must have one blank page per stamp available for entry and exit. When entering by land, an entry permit may be required for travel beyond the immediate border area.


For U.S. travelers, Mexico allows stays of up to 180 days without requiring a visa. If you plan an extended visit beyond the 180 days, look into short stay or long stay visa requirements. Align the nature and length of your trip with existing visa regulations and ensure compliance to avoid complications.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance coverage can be overlooked when planning a trip, but it’s an especially good idea when traveling internationally. Travel insurance is meant to cover things such as:

  • Emergency medical expenses

  • Trip interruptions or cancellations

  • Travel delays

  • Lost and delayed baggage

What Is the Best Travel Protection for Mexico?

Selecting the best travel protection for Mexico is a personal decision based on factors such as health considerations, potential disruptions, non-refundable trip costs, and other risks. We offer three levels of protection crafted to cater to these diverse needs, helping ensure you have an enjoyable time while visiting in Mexico.

Here are some factors to consider when choosing the best travel protection for your trip:

Health or Medical Concerns

A primary consideration by travelers involves assessing their health prior to travel. Medical emergencies happen, and medical coverage outside your health insurance network typically comes with a high price tag.

Imagine having a medical issue that requires attention while in Mexico. A travel protection plan with coverage for medical and dental emergencies and assistance services that can help navigate the medical system in Mexico, ensures your health needs are addressed. It’s also important to know if your plan covers you for pre-existing conditions.

Suppose you encounter a sudden illness or injury that requires immediate medical attention. A travel protection plan should cover:

  • The services of physicians, nurses and dental

  • Hospital charges from a stay in a medical facility

  • Prescription drugs

  • Local ambulance services

It’s also important to understand coverage limits. Find the benefit level that you’re comfortable with. Your own medical insurance might not cover international regions, so travel protection helps fill in the gaps.

Health concerns may also arise back home, necessitating your immediate return. Whether it's a family member becoming seriously ill or facing a medical emergency that requires your presence, the best travel insurance should offer coverage for trip interruption due to health-related reasons.

Events That Could Disrupt Your Plans

When traveling outside your home country, various events could potentially disrupt your well-laid plans. Consider the following scenarios and tailor your insurance coverage accordingly.

Unexpected job loss before your planned trip to Mexico could derail your travel arrangements. Travel protection plans that cover job loss-related trip cancellations may provide financial protection in such unforeseen employment circumstances.

Imagine planning a family vacation around school schedules, only to face a change in the academic calendar. A travel protection plan could cover trip cancellation due to unexpected alterations in school schedules, potentially reimbursing insured trip costs.

If you've been approved for military leave but a natural disaster occurs, calling you into active service, that leave may be revoked. With travel insurance, you could potentially cancel and receive reimbursement for lost trips costs.

Carefully consider any potential hiccups and evaluate whether the peace of mind offered by trip interruption coverage outweighs the risk of traveling without it.

High Price Tag of Non-Refundable Trip Costs

Consider the financial impact of non-refundable trip expenses and choose a travel protection plan that may help safeguard your investment.

Most trips to Mexico require a flight. Imagine booking expensive tickets for your Mexican getaway only to have an unexpected event lead to a trip cancellation. Without travel insurance that covers your airfare, your chances of losing that money are a lot higher. A travel protection plan with Trip Cancellation coverage may reimburse you for lost trip costs when you cancel for a covered reason, allowing you to rebook another time.

All-inclusive resorts simplify the need for cash on hand and typically cover all expenses, but they often require advance booking. If you end your stay early or have to cancel entirely, that money paid might not be returned to you. You can include your nonrefundable, prepaid resort trip costs when you get travel protection.

If you have to cancel a fully paid-for cruise for a variety of perfectly valid reasons, you may not get your money refunded. That’s because cruise lines generally have a very rigid schedule for you to make payments and tight rules around refunds.

The solution is to take matters into your own hands by buying travel insurance with assistance services from Generali Global Assistance.

With our plans, there are about 20 covered reasons for Trip Cancellation and you’re covered right up until you leave on your trip. The Trip Cancellation coverage can even cover excursions and activities that are non-refundable and prepaid.

Weather Concerns

When traveling to areas with weather concerns, especially hurricane zones during the months of June through November, you'll want to have coverage that mitigates these risks. Your beach vacation in Mexico could be disrupted by a hurricane, leading to trip delays, cancellations, or even evacuation.

Factoring in weather-related emergencies as part of your travel plans and helping secure adequate financial coverage for circumstances outside your control may allow you to recoup insured trip costs.
