On 29 March 2022, the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade issued an update to its travel advisory for Mexico, which reads in part as follows: “We now advise you reconsider your need to travel to Zacatecas State due to high levels of crime, including kidnapping and extortion. The land border between Mexico and the US has reopened to fully vaccinated travellers only. Periodic closures of Mexico’s land borders with Guatemala and Belize may occur. Check with local authorities before crossing the border.”
