Mexico Visa Information

Visa Procurement

Please be advised that visa requirements are subject to change and that visa procurement is the responsibility of the traveller and not On The Go Tours, therefore it is essential that you check current visa requirements with the embassy before travel. Please also ensure that your passport is valid for at least 6 months from your planned date of departure from Mexico.

British, other EU, Australian, New Zealand, Canadian and US passport holders travelling to Mexico for touristic purposes do not require a visa for stays up to 180 day but do need a Blue Tourist Card which can be obtained by completing an immigration form available at border crossings or onboard flights to Mexico. Alternatively they can be obtained from Mexican Consulates prior to travel.
