  • Birth certificate of the applicant.

  • If applicable, marriage, divorce, or death certificate(s) related to any previous or current relationships.

  • Proof of Mexican nationality.

  • Documents that establish the volume of trade between the US and Mexico or validate that the applicant is making a substantial investment in a US business. This might include trade invoices, customer/vendor lists, financial statements, or bank records.

  • A letter or document that clearly states the intent of the visit and the duration of the intended stay in the US.


There may be other documents specifically required for Mexican nationals by the U.S. Embassy or Consulate in Mexico depending on the case.

Translator Qualifications

Based on regulations from the U.S. Department of State, while there isn't a specific certification required for translators, they should be proficient enough to translate the document accurately from Spanish (or any other native language) to English. Along with the translation, there must be a signed statement from the translator which asserts the accuracy and completeness of the translation, and their qualification to translate from the original language to English.


Certification Requirements

According to the U.S. Department of State, translations should be accompanied by a statement from the translator or the translation agency. This statement should verify their competence in the source language (Spanish or any other relevant language) and English, and confirm the accuracy of the translation. Given Mexico's participation in international conventions, an apostille might be necessary to authenticate Mexican documents for their use in the U.S.


It is always beneficial for individuals to consult directly with the U.S. Embassy in Mexico to obtain advice tailored to their unique situation.
