Early this week, toll booths on Mexico’s side of international bridges stopped accepting U.S. currency, after Mexican banks would not accept cash deposits greater than $7,000 per month.
The issue between the banks and Mexico’s federal roads and bridges authority, also known as CAPUFE, has been resolved today. Overland travelers are now able to use U.S. currency to pay entry into the U.S. at Mexico toll booths.
To combat money laundering, Mexico’s Finance Ministry, set a limit to cash deposits for individuals and companies. That limit applied to CAPUFE, as well, but the federal agency received an exemption.
