Fill out your Tourist Card before you go!
Some airlines are no longer handing tourist cards out on the plane like they used to, making your landing and getting through immigration slower, (this happened to us on our last trip).
I’ve been hearing about this new easy online form to fill out before you leave for Mexico. I haven’t tried it yet, but I have a couple of friends who have and they say it went off without a hitch! Thank you Donna and Joe!

What is a Tourist Card and why I need it?
If you are visiting Mexico you need a Tourist Card which is an Entry Immigration Form that details information about your visit to Mexico. The Tourist Card is per person regardless of age and how long you will stay in Mexico. The information you provide in the Tourist Card is kept by the Mexican Immigration Authority as an official record of your visit to Mexico.
There are two (2) parts of the Immigration Form, the Entry Form & the Exit Form. We will email you both forms already completed with the proper information and when you arrive in Mexico you will immediately proceed to the immigration booth at the airport where the immigration officer will keep the ENTRY Part of your form and he/she will stamp the Exit Part of the form which you will keep while in Mexico. When you are checking in for your flight back home, you will present the Exit Part of your form along with your passport.
This form is FREE, you do not have to pay to complete the tourist card online.
