NOTICE:  Effective January 1, 2024, there have been several changes to entry / departure procedures in Mexico.  These changes have not been reflected in any information on this website other than in ALERTS.  Editing will be done as soon as the dust settles
Changes include: 

  • A 180 day AIU authorization that has to be sent and received from Mexico City 
  • A 30 minute resend at time of door close to Mexico City Immigration.

Please be advised, we will continue to provide these Alerts to our members as things continue to change.

Baja Bush Pilots Members can review all BBP Alerts regarding these issues by going into ALERTS on this website.

Mexican Liability insurance
The BBP now provides Mexican Liability insurance for aircraft that are not older than 50 years.  This is a change as in the past, our underwriter allowed aircraft between 50 and 60 years old to be insured through a special application process.  In addition, in a major change, our underwriters will not write insurance on some aircraft including helicopters.  See exclusions on our application form,
There are some US underwriters in the US that do cover Mexico's liability requirements.  If your aircraft is more than 50 years old, this could be a solution.
