I know the question of being denied entry into Mexico due to a criminal record has been beaten to death with the general consensus being that you just don't know if you will be admitted until you are in front of an immigration officer, and I'm not here trying to relitigate that question, but most first hand accounts of being denied entry come from people who have felony convictions, as far as I can tell. I have read third party reports of people being denied for misdemeanor convictions, i.e. someone posting about someone else they know who was denied entry due to a misdemeanor conviction, but I have not been able to find any first hand accounts of people being denied entry due to a misdemeanor conviction.
I believe the Mexican government has released statements saying that you can be denied entry due to serious offenses with an accompanying list of what they consider to be a serious offense.
For example, this is from the Mexican Consulate in Toronto, but I believe the same standards would apply to US citizens: https://consulmex.sre.gob.mx/toronto/index.php/en/faq
So, I'm not asking whether or not I can be admitted to Mexico with a misdemeanor conviction, as the general consensus in the forums seems to be that you just won't know until you are in front of an immigration officer. Instead, my question is whether or not any of you readers have any personal, first hand experience of being denied entry into Mexico solely as a result of a misdemeanor conviction?
Personally, I have a misdemeanor conviction for trespassing from nearly 20 years ago. I have entered Mexico 3 times in the past year with no problems whatsoever.
So, have any of you been denied entry as a result of a misdemeanor conviction?
