Ladies and Gentlemen, 


Since USNORTHCOM issued its travel advisory for Mexico our office has been
overwhelmed with requests for information.  I will try to answer everyone's
questions with this one email.  If you still have questions I have not
covered feel free to call or email.


1.  USNORTHCOM approves theater clearance requests.  The US Defense
Representative in a country approves country clearance requests.


2.  Leave travel and passes to Mexico require a country clearance approval.
They do NOT require theater clearance approval.


3.  The country clearance is passive.  That means you will request country
clearance from USDAO Mexico City, but will not receive an approval message.
USDAO Mexico City only sends messages for disapproved leaves.


4.  The country clearance request should be sent by official message
traffic.  That means AMHS, DMS or one of many other systems.  Contact your
comms squadron, message center or local DOIM office for help.  If you are
isolated from a large installation and don't have access to a message center
you can email the request to [EMAIL PROTECTED]
<msn://@mail.mar@/compose.htm?NW=true&mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]> .


5.  Use the following format for your country clearance request:





1. Primary Traveler/Sponsor: [Give last name, first name, and middle
initial; military rank or civilian grade; and citizenship and passport
number or SSN.] 

2. Other Travelers (eligible family members): [For each traveler, give last
name, first name, and middle initial; relationship to sponsor, and
citizenship and passport number.]

3. Travel Itinerary (List information requested for each country to be

a. Dates and times of arrival in and departure from country.

5. List persons to be visited in country: [For each person, give

6. AT/FP Level 1 Training completed on: [Fill in date.] 

7. Additional information required for clearance: must include the address
and phone number of at least one specific person who can serve as a point of
contact in country. 


6.  Ask your intel shop or AT officer for a threat update for Mexico and
specifically the area you are visiting.  You can also visit the Embassy
website at
