Entry Requirements in Mexico

For Europeans no visa is necessary. You simply fill out an immigration document (FMT or tourist card) that you will receive on the plane or at the border. This paper, the FMT allows you to stay in Mexico for a maximum of 180 days. When you enter the country, this document FMT is buffered and should be carefully preserved, because you will be asked at the departure from the territory. Check that the customs wrote 180 days. Be in possession of a passport valid (6 months).

- Upon entering of Mexico, we pay a fee of about U.S. $ 25, regardless of the means of transport used. Just as the airport tax to leave the country, it is included in the airline ticket. - For those who pass through the United States in case of stopover, such as Miami or Huston, there is no need for a visa. However, since January 2009, to facilitate the transition to U.S. immigration, it is mandatory to register at least 72 hours in advance via the Internet (about 14 €, response in about 72 hours after ). This system is called "Electronic System for Travel Authorization" (ESTA). Data valid for 2 years. Attention a transit flight in the United States may result in a delay as you may miss your connection to Mexico: So, at time of booking, allow at least 3 hours between your matches. - Driving license: your national license is sufficient
The length of your flight is about 12 hours for Paris / Mexico. For Cancun, direct flight, count to 11:20 and 9:35 to return.

Exit formalities

- Must present the document migratory (FMT) that you were given upon arrival. - You must pay the airport tax if it is not already included in the ticket price (what is extremely rare). - If you still have pesos, change them in the exchange offices of the airport (before going through customs), or keep them for the next Marathon of Cancún


Regarding the tips, it is customary to leave 10 to 15% of the notes in tourist restaurants. For wearing babages, provide a ticket or 10 pesos 1 dollar.
