Canada lifts visa requirement on Mexico
As of 00:01 EST today, the Government of Canada has lifted the visa requirement on Mexico.
The visa lift underscores the great importance Canada places on its friendship with Mexico, and the closer ties that will come from lifting the visa. The removal of the visa requirement is expected to improve Canada's overall competitiveness as a tourism destination, as well as encourage continued growth of air travel between the two countries - benefitting the Canadian tourism and air travel sectors.
Canada and Mexico are each other's third largest two-way trading partners, and improved bilateral relations stemming from the visa lift will facilitate increased trade and business opportunities.
