Military restrictions in mexico

Recommended Posts

One of my bridesmaids is in the military. She got word last week that the active military and Department of Defense employees is restricted to go to Cancun area. She said there has been a restriction in part of Mexico for some time but it has just expanded to Cancun. The restriction is due to violence and drugs. I'll let you know when I find out more.

 

As far as she knows right now, if this ban is still in place during my wedding, she will not be able to attend. She is supposed to be asking her boss the specifics.

Please let us know when you find out more. My FI brother/BM is active military and if he couldn't attend we might have to rethink of where to married. Hopefully this gets sorted out soon since we both are getting married around the same time.

what branch of military is your BM. My FSIL is a marine and she is one of my BM, although we're not sure if she can make it do to training. But here is an article and this is exactly what she told me. So a marine needs clearance in advance to go and cannot travel alone.

I forward this info to my FBIL, who is in the coast guard, he said it applys to all branches. He is going to find out more info to see if he can go to mexico, otherwise we might be looking somewhere else, hopefully not.

We have a few guests that have been reading the headlines recently and are a bit nervous about the trip. Our plans are to mostly stay at the resort and if we leave it will be during the day only. I know some areas have really changed, and not for the good.

My nephew is in the National Guard and is going to give his sister away. The wedding is in June at Dreams Puerto Aventuras. He gets home in April from Iraq for leave before going back in July. Does getting a commander's approval guarantee he'll be able to go? How long does it take to get approval.
I don't want to mention this yet to either my niece or nephew until we can get more details.
