H1N1 (Swine) Flu Travel Guidelines

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) lifted its recommendation that American citizens avoid all nonessential travel to Mexico. As a result of the CDC's decision, the State Department's Travel Alert relating to the 2009 H1N1 influenza outbreak is no longer in effect.

The University of Texas at Austin administration has lifted the Mexico travel restrictions related to the H1N1 virus for business related travel.

Please review the CDC's travel health precautions for Mexico.
