Mexico travel restrictions extended at ports through August 21

Despite the loss of retail dollars from fewer Mexican shoppers, trade between the U.S. and Mexico is thriving.

Despite work to boost COVID-19 vaccination rates along the U.S. and Mexico border, pandemic-related restrictions that limit non-essential travel from Mexico will remain in effect at ports of entry through August 21. While retail dollars from Mexican shoppers are down, trade is thriving between the two nations. We got insight into why from international trade adviser Luis Ramirez. Ramirez also gave his take on the likelihood restrictions will finally lift next month.
