Entry immigration form – Tourist Card

Starting soon some commercial airlines will stop handing out immigration forms aboard their airplanes, we highly recommend you fill out the form(s) online, so you don’t delay your immigration process when you arrive in Mexico.

All foreign citizens traveling to Mexico must fill out an Official Entry Immigration Form prior to their arrival in Mexico.

​When you arrive in Mexico you present your printed Tourist Card and your passport, and since your information is already in the system, the Immigration Officer just needs to stamp your Tourist Card and that’s it – Welcome to Mexico, Enjoy Your Stay!

What is a Tourist Card and why do you need it?

If you are visiting Mexico you need a Tourist Card which is an Entry Immigration Form that details information about your visit to Mexico. The Tourist Card is per person regardless of age and how long you will stay in Mexico.

The information you provide in the Tourist Card is kept by the Mexican Immigration Authority as an official record of your visit to Mexico.

Do you need to send your passport for inspection?

No, you do not need to send your passport anywhere. On the application form, you will be asked for the information from your passport in order to process your Tourist Card. When you land in Mexico you will be required to present your passport and your Tourist Card to enter Mexico.

How long do you have to keep your Tourist Card?

There are 2 parts of the Immigration Form, the Entry Form & the Exit Form.

You will be provided by email your both forms already completed with the proper information and when you arrive in Mexico you will immediately proceed to the immigration booth at the airport where the immigration officer will keep the Entry Part of your form and will stamp the Exit Part of the form which you will keep while in Mexico.

When you are checking in for your flight back home, you will present the Exit Part of your form along with your passport.
