INM issues statement on Colombian woman denied entry at Cancun International

Cancun, Q.R. — The National Institute of Migration (INM) has issued a formal statement regarding the denied entry of a Colombian woman Friday. On February 3, a woman who arrived at 7:45 a.m. on a Volaris flight from Bogota was denied entry into Mexico.

The woman, who arrived at Terminal 2, was flagged with an active migratory alert registered since October of 2018. The INM reported that for that reason, “her inadmissibility to the country was determined as established by the Migration Law and its regulations.”

“According to procedure, people who are not admitted must wait in a space assigned by the airport administration to board their return flight to the country they came from, during which time, the airline that transported them is responsible for food,” they added.

The woman, who took to social media regarding her denial into Mexico, was returned to her home country of Colombia at 10:57 p.m. that same day. Federal authorities did not disclose details regarding the 2018 immigration alert.
