Travel restrictions are still in effect across the country.
According to the government, visitors should apply for a permit if they plan to travel by air or sea.
A permit will cost you between $500 and $1,000, and can only be issued once.
There is no limit on the number of people who can be granted a permit.
It’s unclear what the limits are for people who have already been approved for a travel permit.
If you’ve already been denied, the government will send you a letter saying that you can apply again.
If not, the denial may be appealed.
If the appeal fails, you may have to wait for a decision, which could take up to five months.
For some Mexicans, getting a permit is a hassle.
“I’ve been denied a permit to travel to the US for three months, but I’m not getting an answer,” said Angel Gonzalez, a journalist and an outspoken critic of the government.
“If you get denied, you are in a dilemma.
You’re trying to get an answer and then you’re facing the uncertainty that comes with a travel ban.
I’m very frustrated and I hope I can get the answers.”
