The Government of Mexico has authorized this Tuesday the passage of migrants who want to cross the country and who have an application to enter the United States previously accepted by the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

As informed by the National Institute of Migration (INM), access will be allowed to foreigners who meet the requirement originating from Venezuela, Haiti, Cuba and Nicaragua.

To this end, the immigration authority will maintain continuous communication with CBP »in order to verify the existence of an appointment in U.S. territory».

However, they explain that the attention provided »does not imply the issuance of immigration documentation by the Mexican Government».

With this measure, the INM has wanted to show »its commitment to a safe, orderly and regular migration, with full respect and safeguard of the rights of those who enter, transit and leave Mexican territory».
