Foreign and Commonwealth office lifts ban on Mexico

Ban lifted on travel to Mexico following swine flu outbreak

By TravelMole on 19 May 2009 in News

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has lifted a ban on all but essential travel to Mexico following the swine flu outbreak.
The revised advice comes three weeks after the flu outbreak reached its peak in the country.
The latest FCO advice says: “Following a decline in the number of reported new swine influenza cases in Mexico since its peak on 26 April 2009, we no longer advise against all but essential travel.”  
But the FCO added that British visitors should continue to follow local advice on precautions to take to avoid exposure to the influenza.
A full consular and visa service is now available at the British Embassy in Mexico City.
The revised advice is likely to lead to a resumption of holiday flights to Mexico, although initial holidaymaker demand is expected to be low.
