A Beginners Guide To Traveling
To get a tourist card, one must pay a fee of around $23 USD.If you are coming in by air or on a cruise, your tourist card fee will already be included in the cost of your trip.If you will be traveling over land, you can obtain the card at your point of entry or from a Mexican consulate before departing for Mexico.In that case, you will need to pay for your card at a bank in Mexico as soon as you arrive. But Mexico’s National Immigration Institute (INM) now allows foreign citizens to apply and pay for a tourist card through the Internet no earlier than 7 days before arriving in Mexico. Don’t forget that your tourist card needs to be stamped by an immigration official upon your arrival in Mexico; otherwise, it will not be valid. The maximum stay that may be given is 180 days or 6 months, but the immigration official will decide on the actual time (typically from 30 to 60 days for first-timers); longer stays require an extension of the tourist card’s validity. You need to keep your tourist card in a secure place since you will have to surrender it to immigration officials prior to your departure.If you can’t give them your tourist card or if your tourist card has expired, you might be fined. What to Do If You Lost Your Card If your tourist card is missing for any reason, you have to pay a fee to get a new one at an immigration office, or you could be fined as you’re leaving Mexico. Extending Your Tourist Card’s Validity If you would like to stay in Mexico beyond than the time indicated on your tourist card, you may apply for an extension of its validity.No tourist can be allowed to stay longer than 180 days however; if you must stay longer, you can leave and reenter the country, or just get a different kind of visa.
