Upon arrival in Mexico you will need to produce an up to date passport** and visitor’s permit. (Your airline will pass these out before you land but they do not offer pens so remember to pack one in your carry on.) Visitors from countries on Mexico’s No Visa Required list do not need to apply for a formal visa to visit Mexico. (I’ve provided a list of those countries below.)
Immigration will check your documents, provide that precious passport stamp and process the form. They will give back a portion of the form which you will need in order to leave the country. Just slip it in your passport and keep it there so you don’t forget. If you lose it, you will have to get another one at the immigration desk at the airport (which includes a fine).
Along with the U.S. and Canada... Other Countries on Mexico’s No Visa List are:
|Switzerland||United Kingdom||United States||Uruguay|
**It is now required that your passport won’t be expiring for at least six months from when you will be entering the country. Check the expiration date on your passport early in case you need to renew earlier than expected due to this requirement. I’ve seen way too many people have to make last minute passport renewal requests when they miss this rule and that is not only stressful but very pricey too. **
