  6. ACSMexicoCity@state.gov 9:46 AM (1 hour ago) to Location: Highway 85D between Nuevo Laredo and Monterrey Event: In response to reports of increased criminal activity, Mexican authorities have increased police patrols along Highway 85D in Tamaulipas and Nuevo Leon. As a result, travelers might encounter additional police checkpoints causing unexpected delays. Tamaulipas is rated Level 4 – Do Not Travel due to crime and kidnapping. Organized crime activity—including gun battles, murder, armed robbery, carjacking, kidnapping, forced disappearances, extortion, and sexual assault—is common along the northern border of Tamaulipas and in Ciudad Victoria. Criminal groups target public and private passenger buses, as well as private automobiles traveling through Tamaulipas, often taking passengers and demanding ransom payments. Actions to Take: Travel during daylight hours and avoid unnecessary stops. Keep your loved ones informed about your travel plans and progress as you travel. Travel with a charged and functional cell phone capable of making calls in Mexico. Use toll (“cuota”) roads rather than the less secure free (“libre”) roads whenever possible. Do not hitchhike or accept rides from or offer rides to strangers anywhere in Mexico. Travelers encountering police or security checkpoints should comply with instructions. See the U.S. Embassy's web page regarding COVID-19. Enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to receive Alerts and make it easier to locate you in an emergency. Assistance: For Emergency Assistance for U.S. citizens in Mexico, call (55) 8526 2561 from Mexico or 1-844-528-6611 from the United States. State Department – Consular Affairs: 888-407-4747 or 202-501-4444 Follow the Department of State on Facebook and Twitter. Follow the U.S. Embassy in Mexico on Facebook and Twitter. Review the Crime and Safety Reports for Mexico. Prepare a contingency plan for emergency situations. Review the Traveler’s Checklist.
  7. Message for U.S. Citizens: U.S. Embassy Mexico City (May 26, 2021) Location: Mexico Event: U.S. citizens may directly return to the United States with certain expired U.S. passports. If you are abroad and your passport expired on or after January 1, 2020, you may be able to use your expired passport to return directly to the United States until December 31, 2021. You qualify for this exception if all the following are true: You are a U.S. citizen. You are currently abroad seeking direct return to the United States. You are flying directly to the United States, a United States territory, or have only short-term transit (“connecting flights”) through a foreign country on your direct return to the United States or to a United States Territory. Your expired passport was originally valid for 10 years. Or, if you were 15 years of age or younger when the passport was issued, your expired passport was valid for 5 years. Your expired passport is undamaged. Your expired passport is unaltered. Your expired passport is in your possession. You do not qualify for this exception if: You wish to depart from the United States to an international destination. You are currently abroad seeking to travel to a foreign country for any length of stay longer than an airport connection en route to the United States or to a United States territory. Your expired passport was limited in validity. Your expired passport is a special issuance passport (such as a diplomatic, official, service, or no-fee regular passport). Your expired passport is damaged. Your expired passport is altered. Your expired passport is not in your possession. Please be advised that currently, routine passport processing in the United States can take 10-12 weeks. If you need a passport in less than 10-12 weeks due to international travel plans, you can pay an additional $60 fee to expedite your passport, which will shorten the processing time to 4-6 weeks.
