04 MayDo you need a passport to go to Mexico or to come back from Mexico?

Okay so here’s the story. My grandma is wanting to go to Mexico. She doesn’t have a passport. And she isn’t a citizen but she is a permanent resident. Is a passport required to come back or to enter Mexico?

    NO Passport required. LPR can Fly with their Green Cards. I really don`t understand how so many answerer`s say you do .
    Legal Permanent Residents do Not need Passports to Fly, Walk os Sail to Canada, Mexico and 17 Nations in the Caribbean
    SOME people think a Passport gets you into AMERICA without a Green Card. How nutty is that?
    Read the link and see that everyone needs a Passport EXCEPT LPR

    Yes, as of about 5 to 10 years ago, they moved away from letting people cross the borders (Mexico and Canada) without a passport. And now you HAVE to have one if you plan on coming back.

    If she’s a mexican citizen? She does not need one to enter, but to come back she’ll need her green card/passport. If you still have doubts check out the U.S. immigration website. http://www.uscis.gov/ hope this helps and tell your grandma to be carefull and safe, mexico is in chaos right now.

    The first 3 answers entirely miss the point! Your grandma is a legal permanent resident of the U.S., a green card holder…right? Then she is really lucky///all she needs to go to Mexico and return to the U.S. is her GREEN CARD. That is all she needs. See site below. and read section on legal permanent residents.

    I don’t know if she can go to the border towns without a passport. I don’t think so though, she would need citizenship. So yes, she needs a passport.

    U.S. Citizen=passport
