Your community  requests that you quarantine  for a minimum of two weeks.

With all the information on this virus, to do less would show  a gross disregard  for life.

And before the "sunshine, fresh air, and exercise" brigade arrives, let me say that all of that can be had without leaving home. Get plenty of pesos at the airport, go home and order groceries  delivered, order meals delivered, and keep your community  members Covid free.

I am here and am not going anywhere, so get off your high moral horse. I asked for info, not a preacher. I stated being curious and instead of an answer I got a sermon. A tourist does not have a community where he is vacationing. So, I still am wondering if tourist visas are being issued to airline passengers and if there are any quarantine requirements for these visitors. Canada, for instance, requires one goes directly to place where one is staying, no stops anywhere in between that and the airport. Or so I have read and been told. I don't know what is necessary in the US.

I don’t think they are “tourist” visas, just commonly called that. Anyone coming into Mexico for no more than 180 days gets the same visa, not just tourists.

You can fly into Mexico from any country. (AMLO's rules) FMMs will be handed out before boarding or on the plane depending on airline. Volaris resumed flights GDL to and from Las Vegas, San Antonio, and Charlotte in July.

Just a question...who flying in needing an FMM is not a tourist? When you enter the FMM has a fee charged to your ticket for tourists. If you are a resident the fee is refundable and the FMM is for statistical purposes.

You honestly can’t think of a single reason why someone would come here except as a “tourist”? If you are not applying for temporary or permanent resident then you are a visitor to Mexico. You can come to help care for a sick family member, help a friend with a project, do volunteer work, housesit for a friend, take a workshop or class, or any number of reasons.

So if they are not residents or citizens or tourists, what visa do they get?  When I came for work as a rep I was always on a tourist visa as I received no pay in Mexico.

You received a visitors visa and called it a tourist visa as so many people do. You can keep calling it a tourist visa if you wish. You can call it a salamander for all I care.

You did not offend me at all.  I have also seen official sites refer to it as a visitor visa but, as I said, I don’t care what you call it.

AND they require you to self-quarantine IN THAT LOCATION for 14 days and will spot check you because some have violated the rules.

So Canada is sending out 'personnel' to check up on new arrivals?  What 'agency' does this? How many times within the 14 days?

That seems like a VERY labor intensive directive....

Not being critical, just wondering how they pull this off.

They are "virtue signaling". It has become very important recently.
