Applying for a Mexico Visa is this Easy

Never mind the purpose behind a trip to Mexico; it may be for any unofficial purpose or in-transit, a valid Mexico Tourist Visa and a Tourist Card are ‘must-haves’. The best part is that applicants can apply for a Mexico visa from a Mexican embassy in their home nation, or where they may be at the time of applying. In addition, citizens of Turkey, Russia can also apply online for a Mexican Tourist Visa by using the Electronic Travel Authorization (Sistema de Autorización Electrónica, SAE).

The processing-time for a Mexican visa is probably different for different Mexican embassies. A number of them take around two days to process a visa, whereas, others may take up to four weeks. This is the reason that it is rational to book an appointment for a Mexico visa not less than four weeks before the planned travel date.

Application for a Mexico visa can be initiated from a Mexican embassy in the applying candidate’s home country (or any other country where the applicant is present). The application process is:

  1. Contacting Mexico embassy to book a meeting
  2. Fill up the Mexico Visa Application Form
  3. Collect and prepare the necessary documents
  4. Submit the online application and make the payment

The website of the Mexico embassy must state the visa processing time or the applicant can find out the same by directly contacting the embassy officials. This is because a Mexico embassy in a particular region may take just about 2 business days to process a visa, while another one in a different region may take 10 business days to process it. A few embassies also suggest that the applicants fix their appointment at least four weeks before your trip.
