Visas & Passports

Every person entering Mexico  should be in possession of a valid Passport.

Whether you need to apply for a visa before traveling to Mexico depends on which country issued your passport, or where you have legal residency, or whether you have APEC business travel privileges.

You DO NOT need to apply for a visa before traveling to Mexico if:

  1. Your passport is issued by one of the countries on the ‘exempt’ list and you intend to travel to Mexico for leisure and business trips of 180 days or less; OR
  2. If you don’t hold a passport from one of the countries on the ‘exempt’ list, but you do hold a current residency visa or permit for the United States of America, Canada, Japan, the United Kingdom, or any country that is signatory to the European Schengen Area; OR
  3. If you don’t hold a passport from one of the countries on the  ‘exempt’ list, but you do hold a current visitor visa for the United States of America; OR
  4. You are legal resident of Mexico (Residente Temporal or Residente Permanente – formerly FM3/FM2)

You DO need to apply for a visa before traveling to Mexico if:

You don’t hold a passport from one of the countries on the  ‘exempt’ list, and you do not qualify under points 2, 3, and 4 above.

Visa Questions? If you are in any doubt about whether you need a visa, or you know you need to apply for an entry visa before you travel to Mexico, you should contact your nearest Mexican Consulate for further information and details about application procedures.
