Guatemala proposes deal with Mexico on entry without passports. Aim is to promote cross-border trade and tourism
Guatemala presented the governor of Chiapas, Juan Sabines, with a proposal to allow Guatemalans to enter the Mexican state by presenting only their national ID.
The economy minister, Luis Velásquez, said the initiative aimed to boost cross-border trade. “We’re waiting for a reply early in October, so we can launch the scheme by the end of this year or early in 2012,” Velásquez said.
