    Mexico question


    0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
    I've been avoiding Mexico for awhile, but can't get out of it this week. Has anyone had any issues taking 2 ipads down there? I usually carry my personal ipad along with the company issued one. I seem to recall some guidance to not bring multiple computers/tablets, but maybe I'm just being paranoid.

    Yeah, you're being paranoid. You won't have a problem. I take multiple devices all the time. Mexico is fun man. Go out and enjoy the dirt cheap tacos and cervezas with the crew. The people are incredibly nice down there.

    You're right, the people are nice and the food is good. I just don't like dealing with customs. Lazy I guess.

    I hear that. It's a hassle but I have't had any problems. They don't really care about much except fruit or eggs.

    Only issue is they like to open your luggage after you arrive. I've found a rope, handcuffs and some KY add to their curiosity. Otherwise it's a none issue. On return. I'm back through customs kcm in 15 mins. Especially with the expedited carry on only lane in DFW. Enjoy the 20 to 1 exchange rate.

    If memory serves me correctly chihuahua was the only city that ever gave crews grief. I think they understand now that one is comany and the other is personal. Now if you had 2 iPads, laptop, 3 phones, etc. it might raise some questions

    I carry the company iPad, personal iPad, and computer. Did plenty of Mexico with no issues/questions asked, except one guy during the bag check, asked me why I had two iPads. I said one is for work, one is for personal use. He shrugged and said "hmm.. ok." And that was it.

    Just make sure you don't lose you portion of the immigration form. My FA did and it was ~$75 USD fine to get out.

    Everything else is fine, I carry 2 iPads as well, haven't been hassled
