If you are granted a Mexican visa you will be able to travel to Mexico. It does not guarantee entry to the country.

At the point of entry, Mexican immigration authorities may ask you some questions to confi­rm the reasons you are travelling, the length of your stay in Mexico and how you are ­financing your trip. The following questions are few examples of what you may be asked:

  • Why are you travelling to Mexico? What activities will you be engaging in?
  • Where are you staying?
  • Do you have any acquaintances in the country?
  • How will you cover your expenses?
  • How long will you be staying in Mexico?
  • If you are on a work visa, who or what company is hiring you? What activities will you be engaging in within the company?
  • If you are on a student visa, what program are you enrolled in? Which is the host institution?
  • How will you leave the country?

As in all countries, Mexican immigration authorities will verify the authenticity of all the documents you present and the truthfulness of the information you provide. They will also con­firm that no outright restriction exists.

The reasons for your trip must match your visa type.

Everyone visiting or living in Mexico has rights, which must be respected.

Foreigners have the right to contact their embassy or consulate.
