You are right.
No one usually cares about checking to see if one has an FMM or not, UNTIL you are in an accident.  Then you could have problems if you don’t have the docs to be here legally.

Lines have begun to grow at both crossings.

Really? I have never had a policeman ask me for one in 40 years of living here after a fender bender. Policeman have no jurisdiction in Immigration matter as far as I know.


But if you had to leave the country on a plane, there you will find Immigration officers, you will be checked, but again, I have never been stopped from going home with an expired one on 2 occasions, and travel home is now considered essential travel. 


Government offices are now running bare bones staff, so if you go, get ready for a long wait in close quarters.


I am advising against it.

left Alamos yesterday at 8am and crossed by 4:30pm at downtown nogales point of entry (sentry lane).


received absolutely no instructions. were told to remove our masks for identification (understandable). no border patrol were wearing masks, nor gloves. same at Tubac checkpoint, observed no precautions being taken.


we are doing a 14 day self-quarantine...

 So far I am holding hope that things settle enough to get some more answers. 
Options as of now are to;
1. Run up to the 21 kilometer hoping there open and get another permit. 
2. Not worry about it as these are special times and circumstances as the solution could have more risk than benefit?
3. Follow CDC guidelines and stay put and practice social distancing?
4 Make a run for home, which for me runs me thru or near Tucson, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Sacramento and takes at least 2 days. 
Options 1, 2,or 3, are most likely as a run for Oregon(conditions there are worse than here)is off the table for now..
We're checking at Hermosillo airport as they should have a person to issue or stamp visas as planes arrive from out of country.. and if they could help us. not a lot of feedback yet but fingers crossed..

The only problem that I see is if you are in an auto accident while in Mexico with an expired FMM the Insurance Co Might use that as an excuse to deny the claim..

Posts on other forum stating no restrictions for gringos traveling south...is this true? I thought the border was closed north and south, with the exception of those in route home, and documentable necessary entrance??

the border is closed for all nonessential travel.  
that said is the closing being strictly enforced, either way, travel north and travel south??


* there are a lot of services here that may be considered essential travel, ie; the package and delivery service Debbie provides, the mail service  Remax provides.
can anyone let us know if these vital services will continue to function?

Frankie, we have friends from Cali, that have planned to be here now...they do not want to travel from Cali to the border, and then get turned back. On the other forum they are saying that there seems to be no restrictions at all coming south...??????? who knows??

The last thing we need is Gringos coming in from the States and NOT self isolating for 14 days after they arrive, which I am pretty sure they won't....the case in Hermosillo was from someone who traveled from the States....it only takes one person to endanger ALL of us!!

This thread started with a link to the tourist travel restriction issued by both Governments.
I really do not understand why this is confusing.


If they want to break the law, if they want to endanger the retired community here then sure, tell em to come on down. 


The more the merrier.

Just crossed the border north today and asked if us citizens still can got south; the responds from the us border person was; yes, but who wants to get sick in Mexico.....
So I don’t know but according to here yes you can go south.
But I guess we should wait and see until a person will let us know who did it.

Try this, you and others took it way off course. As far as the couple coming from Cali, they are an older couple that have had a home here for the last 42 years....They have also spent every April here. They are not bringing any virus with them, but myself and others have advised them to remain where they are....when Mexico gets hit...

Post #57, thanks for the Document, I have been aware of it and it's intent from it's conception....and totally agree with the effort to close the border. I only got involved in this thread, because, as I stated posters on Viva, including Gadsby were talking about friends coming down after the date we were told the border would be closed, in both directions.

I crossed at Mariposa Tuesday about noon, heading south to SC. No problem, just took in my passport, paid and left. Mex Consulates websites stated there were no restrictions on entering Mexico - and they were correct. Cross border traffic (both ways) seemed normal.
Now I'll self quarantine for 14 days.
