Before applying for a visa, please read this important information:

FOR ALL NATIONALITIES. In accordance to National Institute of Migration of Mexico regulation, effective May 1st, 2010, all foreigners regardless their nationality traveling to Mexico, with a valid USA visa, will be allowed to visit Mexico through any port of entry – air, land, sea- without a Mexican Visa; this includes tourist, transit and business trips.

·         Holders of a valid United States multiple-entry visa do not require a Mexican visa to travel to Mexico for a period of entry not exceeding 180 days and for non-gainful activities. The Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) is NOT considered a valid U.S. visa for the purpose of travelling to Mexico under the exemption of the Mexican visa. The U.S. visa must be stamped on the current passport.

IMMIGRATION INFORMATION. According to the Mexican law, obtaining a Mexican visa only allows its holder to arrive at the international transit point to request for permission to enter Mexico at the Mexican immigration filter. The visa does not guarantee the entrance to Mexican territory; the entrance depends on the final approval granted by the Mexican immigration officer at the point of entry.

·         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 to Mexico, the length of your stay, and how you are financing your trip.

·         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.
