Airports and entry requirements

Border Tourist Assistance As of March 2010, all citizens of the United States must present a valid passport when entering Mexican territory by any means of transportation. There are no exceptions for minors. Stays less than 72 hours within the border area, do not require a visa or tourist card.  

When crossing the border area or entering the country by air, US citizens must pay a fee to obtain a tourist card (FM-T), which is available at border crossing points, Mexican tourist offices and Airports located within the border area.   Major airlines provide the tourist card (FM-T) during the trip.

The information that has to include the form is: number of days to be spent in the country, passport number, destination, city of origin, among other data.   Business travelers must complete and submit the FM-N 30 Days form, which will allow them to do business, but not accept a job for a period of 30 days.   Those who need to enter the country for reasons other than tourism and business, or to stay for more than 180 days, will need to obtain a visa and must carry a valid passport.  

US citizens contemplating working or living in Mexico must apply for the Mexican visa at the Mexican Embassy, ​​located at 1911 Pennsylvania Avenue N.W., Washington, D.C. 20006; Telephone (202) 736-1000, or at any consulate of Mexico in the United States.  

All US citizens 16 years of age or older must present a passport in a book or card to re-enter their country by land or sea. Children under 16 years of age may re-enter the United States via land with a legal document (naturalization certificate or birth certificate).   When entering the United States by air, all citizens, irrespective of their age, must present a passport in a United States book. The passport in card is not valid to enter the United States by air.  

Foreigners originating from countries with which the Government of Mexico has signed visa suppression agreements will not be required for a visa. Here you will find the list of countries that need a visa to travel to Mexico.

Update on Earthquake in Central Mexico September 26th, 2017

The Mexico Tourism Board informs that tourist attractions remain open and operating in Mexico, despite damages reported in Puebla, Morelos, and Mexico City.

Museums in Mexico City have started opening normally since yesterday. Out of the 310 tourist hotels in Mexico City, all but 6 are open for business. Additionally, we are thankful to report that no other international tourism destinations in Mexico have been affected and are operating normally. Given these facts, there is no reason for visitors to cancel travel plans to Mexico.

In Puebla, all tourist attractions, including El Teleférico and La Estrella de Puebla, remain open and operating normally. The highway into Puebla as well as the airport also remain open, offering regular access to the many popular sites in the state and the surrounding areas.

Recent reports from Morelos indicated 85% of hotels and spas are operating normally, and highlighted the level of coordination and communication between Government response and recovery efforts and the INAH.

The Mexico Tourism Board, and the entire tourism industry, remains focused on ensuring visitors in the impacted areas receive any assistance necessary while continuing with their existing travel plans. Mexico’s Government at all levels continues to carry out response plans and support the individuals impacted.

Updates on the situation will be shared as new information becomes available.

POSTURA OFICIAL REFERENTE A LOS RECIENTES SISMOS EN MÉXICO.

Septiembre 26, 2017

El Consejo de Promoción Turística de México informa que todas las atracciones turísticas permanecen abiertas y en operación a pesar de los daños reportados en Puebla, Morelos y la Ciudad de México.

Los museos en la Ciudad de México reabrieron sus puertas el pasado 25 de septiembre. De los 310 hoteles con los que cuenta la Ciudad, únicamente 6 permanecen cerrados y en observación por cualquier daño que pueda presentarse. Adicionalmente, les compartimos que afortunadamente, ningún otro destino en México ha sido afectado y todos siguen operando normalmente. Por esta razón, no hay motivo alguno para que los visitantes cancelen sus planes de viaje a México.

En Puebla, todas las atracciones turísticas, incluyendo El Teleférico y la Estrella de Puebla permanecen abiertos y en operación. La autopista a Puebla y el aeropuerto siguen abiertos ofreciendo conectividad y acceso a todos los sitios populares del estado y áreas cercanas.

Los reportes recientes del estado de Morelos indican que el 85% de sus hoteles y spas están prestando servicios reiterando que el nivel de coordinación y comunicación entre el gobierno y el INAH se mantienen sumando esfuerzos para la recuperación del estado.

Mientras que en Oaxaca y Chiapas también hubo impacto después del sismo ocurrido este mes, el día de hoy destinos turísticos como la ciudad de Oaxaca, Chiapas, Huatulco y Puerto Escondido siguen operando normalmente.

El Consejo de Promoción Turística de México y toda la industria turística del país, permanecen enfocados en garantizar que los visitantes de las zonas afectadas reciban toda la asistencia necesaria y continúen con sus planes de viaje existentes. El Gobierno de México en todos los niveles y las instancias gubernamentales correspondientes continúan llevando a cabo planes de respuesta y apoyando a las personas afectadas.

Las actualizaciones y el seguimiento sobre la situación se compartirán a medida que se disponga de nueva información.
