Delegation of the European Union to Mexico

Travelling to and studying in the EU from Mexico

12/05/2016 - 14:50
Travel to the EU

Mexican citizens do not require a visa to visit the European Union (EU) for a period of up to three months. Erasmus+ is an EU educational programme that promotes mobility.

Travelling in Europe is the European Union’s official website for people traveling in the 27 countries of the EU. Whether you are on holiday or on business, you will find practical advice and helpful tips on a wealth of subjects, from what documents you need, to getting healthcare and using your mobile phone.

There is so much to discover, and all of it has been made much easier thanks to the European Union. You can move freely from one country to another within Europe. Because of the Schengen Agreement it is possible to cross many borders within the EU without controls. Also, with the addition of the euro in eighteen countries, the cost and the inconvenience of having to change currencies has been eliminated.

There are thirty-nine countries, including Mexico, whose citizens do not require a visa to visit the EU for a period of up to three months.

 *** Information update for visitors: Changes in the validity of travel documents required to enter the Schengen zone ***

From 19 July 2013, the travel documents for visitors entering the Schengen zone who are not subject to the visa obligation (short stay), must remain valid for up to at least three months after the planned date to leave the territory of EU member states. An exception might be made in justified urgent situations on a case-by-case basis.

Also, travel documents must have been issued within the previous ten years. Visitors with passports that do not comply with these requirements will be refused entry at borders. There is no transitional period for the entry into force of this requirement.
