We are Canadian passport holders, one of our passports expires in June 2013. We hope to be in Mexico in early Jan 2013 for 2 weeks only. The Canadian government "strongly recommends" travelling with a passport that has 6 months to go in this case the expiry date would have to be end July; forcing us to spend quite a bit to renew it. 6 months in advance of its expiry. We are retired and every penny spent needlessly is unwise.
Does Mexico require this 6 month buffer? Do the airlines arbitrarily enforce it?. If not, then the only reason would be self serving, revenue grab by our government.
Is there an authoratative position on this (weblink)?
