Mexico Visa and Passport Requirements
|Passport required||Return ticket required||Visa required|
A valid passport is required by nationals referred to in the chart above; however, it is highly advisable that your passport is valid for at least six months after the date of entry to Mexico as immigration officials and airlines may apply different criteria than those stated by official sources.
Visas are not required by nationals referred to in the chart above travelling for touristic or business purposes. You should obtain a landing card valid for 180 days from your airline on direct flights or at any port of entry. You may be asked to show a return/onward ticket and proof of financial means. You must keep your landing card throughout your stay as you will have to present it when you leave.
Nationals not referred to in the chart are advised to contact the embassy to check visa requirements for Mexico.
Visitors who do require a visa need to provide payslips or bank statements from the six months preceding their application.
The Mexican authorities have suspended the need for children travelling alone to carry a notarised permit from their parents; this decision will be reviewed in January 2014. Until 23 January 2014 minors won’t need a parental permit from their parents when travelling alone or with just one parent. Nevertheless, it is recommended that minors do have a parental permit and the copies of their parents' passports when they travel alone or with just one parent.
