|Manual for Mexican Migrants - Guía del Migrante Mexicano|
La Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores
This guide is meant to give you some practical advice that could be useful if you have made the difficult decision to seek new labor opportunities outside your country.
The safe way to enter another country is to obtain your passport from the Mexican foreign ministry, and a visa from the embassy or consulate of the country to which you wish to travel.
Still, in practice we see many cases of Mexicans who try to cross the northern border without the necessary documents, traveling through dangerous terrain, which includes deserts and rivers with strong and sometimes invisible currents.
