MEXICO CITY (SEGOB) – The Ministry of the Interior announced that as of January 21, Mexico would request visas to Venezuelans who intend to enter national territory; this is because of the exponential increase of migratory flows from that country in transit to the United States.
“It is announced the application of visa in ordinary passports to nationals of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela who intend to enter the territory of the United Mexican States, in the condition of stay of Visitor without permission to perform remunerated activities,”
The Agreement published by the Segob in the evening edition of the Official Gazette of the Federation (DOF) states:
The document indicates that a substantial increase of more than 33% of nationals of Venezuela has entered Mexico. Furthermore, most of them with purposes other than those permitted, such as irregular transit to a third country, have been identified from January to September of this year, and of more than 1000% in comparison with the same period in the previous year five years.
The Segob highlights the increase in “false declarations about their reasons for travel, the diversification of transit routes, and the identification of some crimes associated with international mobility, such as human trafficking and migrant smuggling, which reflects an inadequate use.
The Agreement explains that as a result of the preceding, the government of Mexico “has unilaterally determined the application of visas in ordinary passports to nationals of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela who intend to enter the country as visitors without permission to carry out remunerated activities.”
