ADO now requires all non-Mexican passengers to prove legal stay in country before boarding

Mexico City, Mexico — ADO bus now requires all non-Mexican passengers to provide proof of their immigration status in the country before being allowed to buy tickets and board. In a brief social statement, the transportation company Autobuses de Oriente (ADO) announced that it will ask passengers from other countries for documents proving their immigration status.

The move is due to the “extraordinary situation of migratory flow” in the country, for which the company is being asked to request an official piece of identification or document that proves the legal stay of their passengers in Mexico.

Through a statement, ADO reported that this decision was implemented based on what was requested by various federal entities including the National Migration Institute (INM).

“We want to inform you that as of October 1, 2021, the protocol for the presentation of official identification will be implemented in the sale and boarding of the trip, as well as a document that proves the immigration status in the country, for those people of foreign nationality,” they wrote.

“In advance, we offer an apology to all our travelers for the inconvenience that this may cause, recognizing our commitment to always comply with what is requested by Mexican authorities,” they added.

ADO has asked foreigners, who have questions regarding their documents, to consult the INM directly.
