Mexico has the right to refuse entry to anyone they seem fit. Recently there have been instances of refusal. But these are more related to violent crimes and sexual crimes, Especially when it comes to child porn and other similar instances.

People need to know that now, more than ever Mexico is paying more attention to these type of criminals and their pasts

Be prepared to have your laptops and other electronic devices scanned for unlawful content as well. The mew laws in regards to this matter are now in place but hardly enforced as of yet. If you refuse to right of search, they refuse entry, ADIOS

Sounds to me like u have a few issues and this might not be the place to get the advise you need. Times have been changing in Mexico slow but sure and as Steve and Bruce said, no guarantees from folks here.

I don't know if this helps, but a friend of mine had a DUI conviction in Canada once and she phoned up her cousin who was RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) who looked in the database and she wasn't in it.

You need to know what they will see on whatever databases they look at.

I don't think the DUI is the issue here. It is the Departure order and you may have touble leaving Canada and not going where you are suppose to be going, and definately on the return into Canada coming back through Immigration you would not be allowed entry. I would be phoning Canada Immigration and asking them direct your questions just to be sure.

Again - the DUI is really the smaller issue here and irrelevant to the Mexican government in light of what people seem to be glossing over.

The departure order is a much bigger deal and the OP needs to be talking to a lawyer instead of people on a travel forum. Seriously.

It seems that Mexico is in contact with the Interpol data base now a days, don't know about DUI's but lots of pedophiles being turned away at PVR................
