MEXICO CITY, Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Mexico Secretary of Tourism Gloria Guevara Manzo recently met in London with executives from leading travel companies and airlines in the UK, who indicated that their frequency of travel to Mexico is set to increase.

Secretary Guevara also participated in the Ministers' Summit of the World Tourism Organization (WTO), held during World Travel Market 2012; in this forum, she spoke in favor of promoting the facilitation of migration procedures towards increasing the number of tourists worldwide.

The Secretary of Tourism said that the current Mexican administration has advanced such actions as accepting a U.S. visa for the entry of international visitors to Mexico, as used by more than a million tourists since May 2010.

She noted that the streamlining of visas for citizens of Brazil, Russia, and China, who can now obtain the document in 24 hours; Mexico has also launched the Global Entry Program for trusted travelers between the U.S. and Mexico.
