The Interior Secretariat (Segob) said that now foreigners hailing from other member countries of the Pacific Alliance — Chile, Colombia and Peru — seeking to enter Mexico as visitors without permission to perform business activities will not be required to present a visa if they can prove their permanent residence in one of those nations, as part of the requirements for admission.

In an agreement published Tuesday in the Official Gazette, the secretariat said that the document aims to strengthen the position of Mexico as a tourist and business destination, as well as to promote culture and sports events.

Given the security measures that Canada, the United States, Japan, the United Kingdom and Schengen Area countries have adopted when issuing immigration documents, the Mexican government will facilitate entry to foreign holders of a valid visa of those countries.

The agreement will go into effect on July 1, 2016.
