I received a message in my spam folder claiming that Global Entry members could sign up for a similar program for ‘Global Entry for Mexico’.
The Programa Viajero Confiable Mexico shouldn’t have gone to the junk folder and may be useful for those of you who travel to Mexico frequently and already have Global Entry. The cost to register is around $90 and the three locations available for registration are Mexico City, Cancun, and Los Cabos airports. Like the US program, the pass is valid for 5 years.
I’m not going to sign up since I haven’t been to Mexico since 2009 and rather enjoy playing the red light, green light game at CUN airport to determine whether or not I will be searched.
This was an interesting answer from the FAQ section:
- If my application is denied, will I be refused entry into Mexico? Entry into Mexico is independent from the Viajero Confiable Program, and so travelers not approved for membership may still enter the country normally.
Here is the link with all the info for all others that are interested: Programa Viajero Confiable Mexico.
