As a Swedish citizen, you do not need to apply for a consular visa whenever you want to travel to Mexico for tourism purposes. You are visa exempt. On the other hand, you must purchase a Mexico tourist card, also named Forma Migratoria Multiple. You can fill in an application on the plane on your way to Mexico, or you can get the card on arrival. However, with iVisa, you can get it online before departure in just 30 minutes.
Mexico Visa for the citizens of Sweden – requirements
Fortunately, the online process of obtaining a Mexico tourist card is not very demanding. You will need just a few things, and you should not struggle to acquire them. Here is what you must have at your disposal:
- Valid passport – you cannot get a Forma Migratoria Multiple unless you hold a passport. Plus, the visa policy of Mexico requires that the passport should be valid for at least another 6 months from your date of arrival in Mexico.
- Flight ticket – remember that this requirement applies only to tourists who decide to travel by air. The flight number is what matters. People who travel by car do not need a substitute document.
- E-mail address – as you can imagine, when you apply online for your tourist card, the document arrives via e-mail in PDF format. You must remember to print it out before departure. We recommend more than one physical copy. Also, just in case your FMM gets lost or stolen, make sure to have the FMM number written down somewhere.
- Means of payment – when you apply online, the payment must be made online too. As to that, iVisa is pretty flexible. You can pay using a credit or a debit card, but PayPal, Alipay, and WeChat are also acceptable.
