How Do I Get a Visa for Mexico?

How do I get a visa for México?



There are three kinds of visas – FMT, FM2 and FM3 (actually there are more, but these three are all we are interested in.)



FMT is the common tourist visa that is issued as you enter the country and which you must turn in as you exit the country. The FMT is good for a maximum of 180 days. It cannot be renewed. If you require more than 180 days, you will have the leave the country and re-enter with a new FMT good for another 180… Continue

We handed out 700 bags of… Continue

Questions about Mexican Customs? What can I bring into Mexico? What about my car? Go to the source!
