Travel tips for Cancun, Cozumel, Isla Mujeres & the Riviera Maya

Mexican Tourist Card

This is the Mexican Tourist Card or Immigration form FMM

Each person traveling must fill out Mexican Tourist Card . Parents can complete the form for children.

Be sure to carry a pen on the plane with you.

You can go ahead and print this out to practice on if you’d like. It is pretty self-explanatory.


Date of Birth, the first spaces are for the DAY (in the U.S. we are accustomed to putting the month first)

#13  Place or city of destination, write, Cancun, Cozumel, Isla Mujeres, Riviera Maya…etc.

#14  Address in Mexico, you can write in the name of your hotel.

You will present this along with your passport to the immigration officer at the airport in Mexico, they will tear off the bottom section and give it back to you. Keep this in a safe place! (I always stick it inside my passport) You must turn this section in when you leave Mexico. You must have one, if you know you have lost it, go to the airport early so you don’t miss your flight home. You will have to get a new tourist card at the airport. Some people have reported having to pay up to $50us  to have it replaced. So again, keep it in  safe place.

This is an EXAMPLE ONLY, you will need to complete an original form that you will be given on the plane before you land in Mexico.
