Understanding Mexican Tourist Cards and How to Get One A tourist card, also termed an FMM (“Forma Migratoria Multiple” or FMT previously), is a tourist permit that is needed for all foreign citizen travelers to Mexico who will not be doing in any kind of remunerated work.Tourist cards may be valid for a maximum of 180 days and let the holder stay in Mexico as a tourist for the specified time.It has to be handed in upon the tourist’s departure. Border Zone Back then, a tourist card was not required of travelers who remained within the United States border zone for up to 72 hours.Nowadays, the card is needed even by non-Mexican visitors staying in the country for less than six months.

Study: My Understanding of 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 travel by land, you can get the card at your point of entry or from a Mexican consulate before you depart for Mexico.In such a case, you can pay for your card at a bank once you get to Mexico. 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. Just keep in mind that the tourist card has to be stamped by an immigration official as you arrive in Mexico, or it will be rendered invalid. Maximum possible stay is 180 days or 6 months, but the time actually given will be determined by the immigration official (30 to 60 days for first-timers in most cases); for longer stays, the tourist card would have to be extended. You have to keep your tourist card in a safe place as you will be required to surrender it to immigration officials before you leave.If you can’t show them your tourist card or if it’s expired, you may have to pay fines. 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.
