Apple Pay may soon arrive in Mexico as users were able to add their cards to the Wallet app

Apple Pay may soon be available in another country. Following last year’s expansion to more countries in Europe, including Slovakia and Portugal, there’s now evidence that Apple’s payment service is coming to Mexico.

According to some users on Twitter, it’s already possible to add cards from Mexican banks to the Wallet app by changing the iPhone region to another one that already supports Apple Pay. The cards are successfully added, but it’s not yet possible to verify them with the bank since Apple has not yet officially launched Apple Pay there.

It’s probably just a matter of time before Apple officially announces it to Mexican users. If that’s the case, Mexico will be the second country in Latin America to offer Apple Pay support, after the launch in Brazil in 2018.

We’ve contacted some Mexican banks, but they told us that there are still no plans to officially launch Apple Pay in Mexico.

You can view the full list of Apple Pay countries and regions on Apple’s website. Keep up with all of the latest Apple Pay news in our full Apple Pay guide. If you’re in Mexico, let us know when you see Apple Pay goes live.
