Visit Mexico Commercial

Laura asks…

Hi. Do you need a Canadian visa when your flight connection is in Toronto?

My mother from Mexico, will flight to UK. Her flight does the connection in Toronto. Someone told her that needs a Canadian visa to do the transfer there. Is that right? Thank you!

Tijuana answers:

Yes, she needs a Canadian transit visa!

Canada only applies to a very limited transit without visa concession. It only applies to citizen of five Asian countries who hold a valid visa for the United States and to transit at Toronto or Vancouver airport en route to the United States or back home.

All others who need a visa to visit Canada also need to get it for an airport transit.

The Canadian Visa Office does not charge anything for a transit visa; however the commercial visa application center levies a service charge of $264 pesos.

Mark asks…

What happened to the Goodyear Blimps?

Don’t see them at the big sports venues etc.,
Why can they not be promoted for commercial flights (limited)

Tijuana answers:

There are currently THREE Goodyeear Blimps in the North America.

The Spirit of America is based in Carson, California between Long Beach and downtown Los Angeles.

The Spirit of Goodyear and the Spirit of Innovation, will travel that part of the United States bordered by the Rocky Mountains to the west, the Atlantic Ocean to the east, the Gulf of Mexico to the south and Canada to the north.

A Goodyear blimp is not limited to the United States, however, and may occasionally visit Canada or Mexico.

Tijuana answers:

State Dept Alert:
Personal Safety: Visitors should be aware of their surroundings at all times, even when in areas generally considered safe. Women traveling alone are especially vulnerable and should exercise caution, particularly at night. Victims, who are almost always unaccompanied, have been raped, robbed of personal property, or abducted and then held while their credit cards were used at various businesses and Automatic Teller Machines (ATMs). U.S. Citizens should be very cautious in general when using ATMs in Mexico. If an ATM must be used, it should be accessed only during the business day at large protected facilities (preferably inside commercial establishments, rather than at glass-enclosed, highly visible ATMs on streets). U.S. And Mexican citizens are sometimes accosted on the street and forced to withdraw money from their accounts using their ATM cards.

Kidnapping, including the kidnapping of non-Mexicans, continues at alarming rates. So-called express kidnappings, an attempt to get quick cash in exchange for the release of an individual, have occurred in almost all the large cities in Mexico and appear to target not only the wealthy, but also the middle class. U.S. Businesses with offices in Mexico or concerned U.S. Citizens may contact the U.S. Embassy or any U.S. Consulate to discuss precautions they should take.
Kidnapping in Mexico has become a lucrative business, whether it be an actual kidnapping or a virtual kidnapping. A common scam throughout Mexico is telephone kidnapping with a similar methodology. The virtual kidnapping calls typically include a distraught voice immediately after the phone is answered that serves as a ploy to elicit information about a potential victim. The caller then uses this knowledge to demand ransom for the release of the supposed victim. In the event of such a call stay calm since the vast majority of the calls are hoaxes; do not reveal any personal information; try to speak with the victim to corroborate identity; and contact the local police as well as the Embassy or nearest Consulate.

Criminal assaults occur on highways throughout Mexico; travelers should exercise extreme caution at all times, avoid traveling at night, and may wish to use toll (“cuota”) roads rather than the less secure “free” (“libre”) roads whenever possible. Always keep your car doors locked and your windows up while driving, whether on the highway or in town. When in heavy traffic or when stopped in traffic, leave enough room between vehicles to maneuver and escape, if necessary. In addition, U.S. Citizens should not hitchhike with, accept rides from or offer rides to, strangers anywhere in Mexico. Tourists should not hike alone in backcountry areas, nor walk alone on lightly-frequented beaches, ruins or trails.
