How to Obtain a Mexico Tourist Card
3 min read
Updated on May 14, 2024

Are you planning to visit Mexico? Mexico's exotic culture, interesting history, and delicious gastronomy draw tourists from far and wide. However, you may require a Mexico Tourist Card to enter the country.

Who must apply for the Mexico Tourist Card

All travelers who want to enter Mexico for tourism, visiting family, doing business, or other short-term purposes that will be under or up to 180 days long require a Mexico Tourist Card, even if you are from a visa-exempt country.

Although, you won’t need this form if you enter through the following airports:

  • Cancun International Airport (CUN)

  • Cozumel International Airport (CZM)

  • Los Cabos International Airport (SJD)

  • Puerto Vallarta International Airport (PVR)

  • Mexico City International Airport (MEX)

However, if you are from a country that requires a Visa, you will still need to fill in the “Forma Migratoria Multiple” regardless of the Mexican airport you’re flying into.

You do not require a tourist card to transit through Mexico if you:

  • Stay at the airport between flights.

  • Leave the country within 24 hours of arriving.

Where can I get a Mexico Tourist Card?

Obtaining a Tourist Card is relatively easy. While you can get this card at the airport or the border, applying beforehand is more accessible, saves you stress, and speeds up the airport immigration process.

How to apply for a Mexico Tourist Card online

The easiest way to apply for a Mexico Tourist Card (Land or Air) is with us! We simplified the application process into three simple steps:

  • Complete the simple online form with the required information and double-check it’s correct.

  • Choose your preferred processing option and pay the Mexico tourist card fees.

  • Keep an eye on your email for your completed card. Download and print it.

When you arrive in Mexico, you must present the printed Tourist Card and your passport; the immigration officer will stamp your Tourist Card, and you are good to go.

We recommend applying a few days before your trip.

Common errors during the Mexico Tourist Card Application

Here are some common mistakes that travelers applying for a Mexican tourist card may make and tips on how to avoid them:

Confusing the Mexico Tourist Card with the Health Declaration: The tourist card differs from the Health Declaration, which travelers are no longer required to fill out when landing at a Mexican airport or entering a land border.

Not printing out the Tourist Card or getting it stamped at the port of entry: You must have a hard copy of the card when entering Mexico! Print both pages to present them during the immigration entry process at the border. Ensure they stamp them and show them again upon departing Mexico.

Making a mistake during the application: Remember that once you submit the Mexico Tourist Card application, you cannot edit it. Applying with iVisa helps avoid these issues, as our experts verify your answers before submitting the form.

Applying for one card when traveling in a group: Each person in the group will require a tourist card. You can easily apply together on iVisa by clicking “Add Another Person” during the online process.

Not checking the visa requirements: Sometimes, you may need a visa apart from the Mexico Tourist Card. Remember, this document is not a visa. Check the visa requirements with your nearest embassy or consulate.
