Do I need a tourist visa to visit Cancun?

In an effort to continue to improve the visitor's experience, the tourist card of the past has mostly been phased out! You no longer have to worry about carrying that little slip of paper all around, keeping it dry when you swim and discovering you’ve lost it as you frantically go through your bags and pockets on your return to Cancun Airport transportation. Forced to go through paperwork and pay a fine. No. More. With some exceptions of course.

Streamlined Travel with the Tourist Card Exemption at Mexican Airports

If you're planning to visit Mexico and your travel itinerary includes flying into and out of certain airports, you can now enjoy a hassle-free experience thanks to a recent change in immigration procedures. The Forma Migratoria Multiple (FMM), commonly known as the Tourist Card, is no longer required for travelers arriving or departing from the following Mexican airports:

  • Cancun International Airport (CUN)
  • Cozumel International Airport (CZM)
  • Los Cabos International Airport (SJD)
  • Puerto Vallarta International Airport (PVR)
  • Mexico City International Airport (MEX)

How do you get from Cancun Airport to Hotel Zone?

Travel with peace of mind with the experienced professionals.

More information

This exciting development means that for most tourists, filling out the FMM is a thing of the past when using these airports. However, there are some exceptions to keep in mind:

- Non-Designated Airports: If your travel plans involve any other airport in Mexico not mentioned above, you may still need to complete the Immigration Form manually upon arrival or departure.

- Visa Requirements: Travelers coming from countries that require a visa to enter Mexico must continue to fill out the FMM. For those arriving at the airports listed above, please be aware that you'll need to complete the form manually upon your arrival.

- Non-Visitor Status If you're not a tourist but rather a permanent resident in Mexico, you should adhere to the regular arrival procedures as you have in the past.

Not sure if you need an FMM? Worry not. You can easily obtain the required forms at all arrival terminals. Immigration Officers will be available to guide and advise you on whether you need to complete the form or if you're all set to proceed with your journey.

Thanks to these streamlined procedures, clearing immigration and customs at Cancun Airport, and the other participating airports, is now a swift and straightforward process, allowing you to start your Mexican adventure with ease. Enjoy your travels!
