VISAS

No visa required

If you are a citizen or a permanent resident in the Schengen Area, UK, USA, Canada or Japan or if you have a valid visa for any of those countries, you DO NOT REQUIRE A VISA to visit Mexico under the following conditions:

  • The purpose of your visit is tourism, studies or business.
  • The duration of your stay does not exceed 180 days.
  • You will not receive any remuneration at all from Mexico.

However, it is necessary to have:

1. A valid passport with more than 6 months of validity (Mexican authorities require a passport to be valid for the duration of the stay in Mexico, but the transit countries and airline companies may have other requirements).

2. A properly completed Multiple Migratory Form (FMM). The FMM can be obtained from the airline or at the port of entry, but to expedite your registration at the border, you can now fill out and print it in advance in this link.

Remember to keep the FMM in a safe place during your trip! You will be asked for it at your departure from Mexico.

3. The Immigration Authorities at the port of entry may request certain documents to prove the purpose of your visit depending on the activity you will undertake in Mexico:

  • Tourism: Hotel reservation, itinerary and the return tickets (back to Finland or to another country)
  • Business: Letter in Spanish from the foreign company indicating that you are an employee and that the services you will provide in Mexico will be paid for by that company, or a letter of invitation from a public or private institution to perform non-remunerated activities in Mexico, indicating the purpose of the trip, estimated time of stay and taking responsibility for your travel and lodging costs.

Visa exemptions

Permanent residents must prove the permanent resident status to the immigration officer in Mexico at the port of entry by having the word “Permanent” stated in their residence permit or by a letter of the immigration authorities of the Schengen country where they reside, stating his status as “Permanent Resident”.

Remember: 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 for, the length of your stay in Mexico and how you are ­financing your trip.
