I've just read a couple of threads on the Puerto Vallarta and Cancun forums, and people are very confused about passport validity to Mexico. Apparently the US and Canada State Departments "suggest" that one needs 6 months validity on their passports to fly to Mexico, though it seems that that isn't Mexican law.
The theory behind this advice is that people from countries like the US and Canada who don't need a visa are allowed to stay 6 months, therefore one should have 6 months validity past their entry date. No mention is made of having a return ticket.
Many posters are claiming that the airlines have their own 6 month "rule".
So, my question is this - If a passenger with going on a 2 week holiday with a return ticket, and a passport that expires in say, 3 months, were denied boarding because of this airline "rule" (despite the fact that Mexico doesn't specifically require 6 months validity) would they be eligible for Involuntary Denied Board compensation?
I don't have this issue, I'm just curious.
