Visit Mexico

Laura asks…

Is a J1 visa a multiple entrance visa? I’m from Europe, I want to visit Mexico crossing the border with the US?

I have to go to the US with a J1 visa, and I want to visit Mexico during my stay (I’m gonna live just north the border). Is it possible? Do I have to make my authorization signed by the University, like it was with the F1 visa?

Tijuana answers:

Same procedure!

Continuing students who are going to travel outside of the United States must see their foreign student advisor and obtain an endorsement from the DSO or RO. The endorsement will be made on page 3 of the SEVIS Form I-20 or page 1 of the DS-2019. When returning to the United States, a continuing student/exchange visitor must present a valid SEVIS Form I-20 or DS-2019 with the DSO or RO signature showing that the student is active and in good standing with the school or program.

Charles asks…

What are some of the best places to visit in Mexico?

I am planning on visiting Mexico sometime during the summer but I don’t know where I should go. So what are some of the places you guys probably enjoyed the most if you’ve ever visited or some of the best places you’ve heard of? Thank you so much for your help! :)

Tijuana answers:

Mexico is full of wonderful places to visit. It has a rich history and culture to experience. As you might imagine, stay away from the border cities which are currently plagued with drug violence, other than that (and a couple of other trouble spots in the interior) the rest of the country is just as safe as most parts of the US or any other first-world country. Besides, you wouldn’t be missing much by avoiding border cities anyway.

Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey are all large and modern cities, but also full of history and places to visit and things to see. Aztec ruins abound near Mexico City, as does the Basilica of Guadalupe (the second-most visited Catholic site in the world I believe.) The area around Guadalajara is great to get out to as well. Tequila (the birthplace of the drink) is nearby, and is worth a visit. The Lake Chapala area is home to one of the largest US and Canadian ex-pat communities in Mexico, and makes for a nice day or weekend side trip.

Mexico is also full of resort areas if beaches are what you’re looking for. Acapulco seems to be experiencing some bad violence right now, but other than that, there are countless other places that are perfectly safe to visit and relax in (Cabo, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Huatulco, Manzanillo, Ixtapa, etc.)

Other areas that I’ve visited that were both full of history and just overall great places to visit include Guanajuato (home of Mexico’s mummies), and the city of Merida in Yucatan (just an overall beautiful city.)
