What is a Mexico Tourist Card?
A Mexico Tourist Card or FMM ("Forma Migratoria Múltiple"), is an authorization made for all foreign citizens planning to enter Mexico.
How long is the Mexico Tourist Card long for?
Your FMM expires 180 days after arrival, and it offers you Single Entry. You can stay in the country 180 days in Total. And remember that it can be used for tourism purposes only.
What are the requirements?
One of the first things you have to do when you decide to apply online for a Mexico Tourist Card is to check if you have everything iVisa asks of you. With that in mind, here is what you need for the application process:
- Valid Passport – to get a Mexico tourist card, you must be a passport holder. If you already have it, your passport has to remain valid for at least 6 months from your arrival in Mexico.
- Airline ticket – iVisa is interested in the flight number. Remember that you must fulfill this requirement only if you travel by air.
- E-mail address – when you complete the online application process, the FMM card is sent via e-mail in PDF format. You have to print out at least one physical copy before departure. At the same time, we recommend you to write down the number of your tourist card just in case it gets lost or stolen.
- Payment options – iVisa accepts multiple methods of payment. You can either use a credit or a debit card, but you can also pay using PayPal.
