You Can Now Complete Your Mexico Immigration Form in Advance

Mexico immigration formPlanning to go to Mexico soon? I recently got an update from the UK’s fantastic travel advisory service that included a message for British travelers: “If your passport is valid for at least 6 months from the date you intend to enter Mexico, you can now choose to complete your immigration card in advance online rather than on arrival.”

Well I checked, and it’s true for American citizens, as well. If your passport has at least six months left on it before it expires, you can complete your Mexico immigration form in advance using this official website. That way, you can breeze past everyone on your plane at immigration and get your vacation off to a better start. My colleague Chris McGinnis—my co-host in the weekly #TravelSkills chat—just used it last week.

  1. One additional important note: If you travel by land into Mexico, for more than 72 hours, you will be charged for a visa. But, If you don’t have that Bancomer (Mex gov bank) receipt with you when you leave by air, you will be charged $50 US for the privilege of exiting the country. The cost of the Visa is included in all boat and air transportation costs but not entry by land. I found this out about 4 years ago, the hard way.
