Attendees are responsible for determining their specific entry requirements into Mexico. If you have not already done so, we urge you to begin the process immediately to ensure enough time prior to the workshop.
Attendees are strongly advised to ensure they fulfill all legal requirements to enter Mexico. Besides a valid passport, an entry visa and invitation letter may also be required.
SPE offers an official electronic invitation letter to assist you in the visa process upon registration confirmation. Please contact Liliane Arroyave at LAC@spe.org for invitation letter requests.
Note: It is the sole responsibility of the attendee to obtain the necessary paperwork for entry in Mexico. This letter does not guarantee that you will be granted a visa, nor does it commit SPE to assist you in obtaining a visa. SPE will not pay any expenses incurred by you. We cannot send the letter to the embassy or consulate for you, nor can SPE contact the embassy or consulate on your behalf.
Mexico invests heavily in the protection of its own citizens and tourists alike. This includes deployment of policemen in hotel zones, the construction of passenger bridges over major thoroughfares, the employment of English speaking tourism officials to offer assistance to visitors, and the strict enforcement of the drinking age. In addition, most US Consulates have joined efforts with local authorities to promote tourist safety.
When traveling, as in any major city, take certain precautions. Always keep your valuables out of site and safely stored in a hotel safety deposit box. In the event of a lost or stolen room key card, notify hotel management as soon as possible. Also, travel in a group and plan your itinerary before leaving the hotel.
If you plan to take a taxi cab, please use the official taxi cabs provided by the airport located exiting the baggage claim or the taxis offered by the hotel. Make sure that the taxi driver is using the meter all the times.
Enjoy visiting Mexico historical and trade mark places such as the Pyramids of Teotihuacan & Basilica Guadalupe, Coyoacan, Anthropology Museum, Historical Center, and others while in Mexico.
