Year-end Vacation

Travel Information

After receiving your registration, our travel agency, Achieve Incentives & Meetings will send you a welcome packet in the mail.  A member of the Year-end International Team will contact you to go over important information, and answer any questions that you might have.

Additionally, consider purchasing travel insurance, as this will protect you in the event of any unforeseen and unexpected circumstances that may arise before and during your travels. You will be traveling during a very busy holiday season, and it is common to have winter storms in many parts of the globe.

Travel Documents

Guests traveling to Mexico a are required to carry a valid passport with one blank page for entry stamping. Passports need to be valid for at least six months after your expected date of return. For more information regarding passport requirements, U.S. citizens can visit or call the National Passport Information Center at 1-877-487-2778. Foreign nationals should contact their respective governments to obtain details regarding current passport requirements. It is your responsibility to determine and fulfill the passport and visa requirements applicable to your travel situation. We encourage you to contact your respective government to obtain details regarding current passport requirements.

Traveling into Mexico with Minors

Passports are required. Any person under 18 years of age is considered a minor. Very strict regulations govern travel by minors into Mexico. If a child under 18 years of age is traveling with you and he/she is not your own child, you will need to have a notarized letter with you giving you permission to travel to Mexico with the child. The letter must be signed by both parents. If a child is traveling with only one parent, the minor must have a notarized letter of consent signed by the parent not traveling. If traveling with only one parent and the other parent is deceased or the child has only one legal parent, a notarized statement must be obtained as proof.
