Is a negative Covid test needed to enter Mexico? How about when you return to the US?

NO to enter Mexico; Yes to return to the US.

If you can prove your vaccination status, up to three (3) days prior to date of return. If unvaccinated, no more than the day before your return flight. Hope this helps, safe travels.

¡Diviértanse!

There is a testing site at the ferry dock for one. There are other places too, a lab on Juarez, several of the doctors and a few free standing trailers.

We recently used the one at the ferry dock. It was very easy snd our results were emailed to us within 20 minutes. We stopped in a little later for a paper copy. You can pay cash (USD or pesos) or use a credit card. There is a small fee for using a card.

I STRONGLY recommend getting tested before going even though its not required.

A) You could unknowingly be bringing covid to a people with far less resources and treatment options.

B) If you have it right before you leave, (even asymptomatic) you will most likely test positive on exit and be forced to quarantine at a minimum. Worst case, end up alone in a strange hospital in Mexico.

Fully agree Tom! We tested earlier this year before we went and will again before we go in January.

The antigen test (rapid test) is about $30USD and the PCR test about $100USD at the ferry terminal.
