Mexico Eases Entry Rules

Fr om May 1, nationals of all countries can enter Mexico on a valid U.S. visa instead of a Mexican one, RIA-Novosti reported Tuesday.

The purpose of entry may include traveling, transit and certain types of business. The duration of a single trip cannot exceed 180 days, but the number of trips is not lim ited.

About 25 million tourists, mainly from the United States and Canada, visit Mexico every year.
