Commonly asked question: Do I need a visa to enter Mexico?
- When heading from the United States to Mexico, it is customary for you to have a valid U.S. passport with you to both enter and return from Mexico. If you are there for tourism or business and plan on an extended stay lasting longer than 6 months, chances are you will need a visa. The Mexico visa in your passport informs immigration officers who process your entry that you meet the minimum Mexico entry requirements for entering the country.
Languages Of Mexico
As we all may know, Spanish is the most commonly spoken language in Mexico. What many people may not know is that the Mexican government recognizes 68 national languages of Mexico including 63 indigenous languages and 350 dialects of those languages. Mexican Sign Language is used by the Mexican deaf community as well as one or two indigenous sign languages.
- Indigenous – About 6 million people of Mexico’s population speaks an indigenous language. The indigenous language of Nahuatl is the single most spoken indigenous language by more than 1 million people in Mexico. The indigenous languages come from eleven distinct language families. Four of them are isolates and one that was immigrated from the United States. Much of the indigenous population is bilingual with Spanish being their second language but much of them are only monolingual. In 2003, the Mexican Congress approved the General Law of Linguistic Rights of the Indigenous People. This law recognizes Mexico’s history in its indigenous languages and that they have the same validity as Spanish speakers in their territory. This also means the indigenous people can use their language to communicate with government officials and request official documents in that language.
Some indigenous groups in Mexico include:
The country of Mexico is known to have a rich, vibrant, and colorful culture. It is heavily influenced by its Aztec and Mayan ancestors as well as European colonization.

Many ancient traditions and ruins of their ancestors have been preserved and are popular travel destinations. Much of the indigenous culture in Mexico has inspired things such as cuisine, medicine, rituals, and language. Our interpreters and translators in Mexico understand all of the nuances of the peoples in the area.
