TRAVELLING ON BUSINESS (ROMANIAN CITIZENS)

Romanian citizens do not require visa to go to Mexico in the following cases: if they travel to Mexico for business, attending conferences, seminars, courses, workshops or meetings and their stay does not exceed 180 days and they won’t receive any payment in Mexico for their activities and whether their activities within the company will be technical or limited to training and/or consultancy.

Nevertheless, the Migration Authorities at the airport may proceed with a second review and request other things such as: the address and length of stay in Mexico, the means of subsistence during the trip and the return flight ticket.

It is also advisable to bring the letters of both the company registered in Mexico and the one which employees the person in Romania.

The invitation letter has to include, without exception:

  • The applicants’ full name and nationality;
  • Name and address of the organization or private institution;
  • Purpose of the organization or private institution;
  • Full address and contact details of the organization or private institution;
  • Information on the activities that the applicants will do within the organization or private institution;
  • Estimated duration of their stay in Mexico (within 180 days);
  • The written commitment that the organization or private institution will take over the maintenance of the foreign people during their stay in Mexico and their return to their country of origin, and
