High level officers from both governments are discussing today terms for a potential border closing  USA-MEXICO for tomorrow. NO details have been released yet but may look similar to the Canada - US border closing.

If so, it will mean that Americans can get IN to the US but Americans already in the US cannot leave the US.

I don't understand why Americans already in the US would not be able to leave. Can you provide a verifiable source for that information? Wouldn't it be up to the country in which they are attempting to go? For example if Mexico doesn't close its borders then why wouldn't Americans be able to enter?

Being discussed at the SecState/Foreign Relations level according to local news here and will impact both ways. According to the article I read they want to "protect essential cross border commerce and trade" but restrict "non-essential travel, including tourist and recreational visits". US State Dept has already issued a travel alert urging Americans not to go abroad and return home unless they plan to remain abroad. Wait til they announce the details because anything else is pure guesswork, but I expect it to happen.

Sure would like a hard and fast definition, from the State Department/DHS/some government entity, of what constitutes nonessential travel.

As of 0935, I can find nothing on an official website. Hope it's coming.

Pompeo used examples such as US citizens, non-US engaged in trade or education constituted essential travel. Conversely, Mexico would admit Mexican citizens and residents. I take that to include Residencia Permanente holders, but that was not used as an example. Use of tourist visas on either side have been suspended.

Here is a fear that is shared by some of us down here.

We return to the US. Our houses caretaker reports that our house is broken into. Will we be allowed to return to our home down here and assess and fix the damage?

imho, i think returning to the USA at this time unless it is extremely urgent is not worth the possibilities we will confront at the border entering and returning.
at a minimum each crossing vehicle will  be questioned and maybe more. 
we have all seen what lines can occur during normal times, these are not normal times!!!!!!

Post #14,
Are you saying people who arrive at km21 from the USA will NOT be issued a tourist permit?

Left this AM today. Trip to border took 4 hours, arriving around 11 Am. ALL toll booths are now open and all rates have gone up. The most notable was HMO booth. After paying 113 pesos for the HMO bypass the HMO toll on the Hwy. was 90 pesos. Bit of a shock, but well worth it, having the Hwy. the way it is now compared to 35 years ago..Must note, the Hwy was almost void of traffic, autos and trucks. Maricopa crossing took about 5 mins.

I have located the chapter and verse of the new restrictions on travel across the US/Mexico border, from the DHS perspective.


https://s3.amazonaws.com/public-inspection.federalregister.gov/2020-06253.pdf


Marigot, it seems like you will be allowed IN to the US for medical purposes. 


I dont know where the other poster got his/her info on tourist visas being suspended.

At least this doesn't effect air travel. Might make it down one more time to catch the end of the yellowtail season. Not sure what this means though for the Canadians heading north. Gonna be a quiet spring in SC this year.
