Mexico’s visa policy is really easy. Presently, Russia, Turkey, and Ukraine citizens have access to an Electronic Authorization System. It is no longer required for them to apply for a consular visa that lessens time and effort. There are 65 countries whose citizens can travel without a visa to Mexico. You just need to pay a tourism fee which is called Forma Migratoria Multiple. Conveniently, it can be paid online using the services of iVisa.
Just use the Visa Checker on iVisa’s website to find out whether or not Maltese can avail FMM online through iVisa. Just insert your country of origin, select Mexico as your destination to found out right away.
What are needed documents?
Maltese can pay for the FMM through iVisa. iVisa only have few requirements so you need to submit some documents and have your request processed. Most probably, you already have everything you need to provide.
Valid passport – you may not need a visa, but you still need to have a passport. Not only that, but your passport needs to be valid and continue to be as such for at least another 6 months from your date of arrival in Mexico.
E-mail address – iVisa will send you a copy of your approved Tourist Card, which you need to print out. For that to happen, you need to provide a valid and correct e-mail address.
Flight ticket – this applies only if you travel by air. iVisa needs your flight number, and a ticket is the perfect proof of that.
- Means of payment – you need to make the payment before submitting your application. In order to do that, you can use a credit or a debit card. iVisa accepts Paypal as well.
Once you have gathered the necessary documents, start filling in the application form. You should be able to finish within 10 to 15 minutes.
Forma Migratoria Multiple – processing time and costs
A tourist card is reasonable so you don’t have to worry too much about it. The amount Maltese need to pay depends on processing time and travel type (by air or by land). As for the former, iVisa comes with three choices:
Standard processing time – if you select this type of processing time, you have to pay $20 (or the equivalent in your country) for the service fee. It also means that you will receive the Mexico tourist card in 24 hours. That is if the weekend is not coming up.
Rush processing time – this means you will obtain the tourist card in as little as two hours. However, the cost will go up by $20. So if you travel by plane and choose the Rush processing time, you will pay $40.
- Super rush processing – this is the fastest processing time, which means you will have your FMM in 15 minutes. As you may have guessed, this will cost you more than the previous processing times. Your bill will go up to $60.
The fees above apply if Maltese arrives via air. Travelling by land will incur an additional $25.
The document Maltese receives is valid only if you travel by air or by land. If you arrive in Mexico via cruise ship, you need to go to the nearest Mexican embassy to get your visa. Maltese must use the FMM 30 days after issue or it will expire. However, you can stay up to 180 days in Mexico if you will apply for extension once you arrive in Mexico. You are allowed a single entry and only for tourism and business purposes. Illegal work will result to deportation.
Paying online is much easier and iVisa will assist Maltese throughout the entire process. In case you have any questions, you may contact their support service that is available 24 hours.
