Tourist Visa News

Mexico is a pretty popular place for backpackers. It’s a pretty big place too. You could easily go over the standard 90 day visa time allowance. And oh the bureaucracy to get it extended! Actually, it isn’t that hard, but still. I did once…had to photocopy every single page of my passport, fill out a form or two and pay a few pesos. I did it at the airport, but it can be done at immigration centres around the country.

Still…backpackers, fear not! The immigration service has changed it’s rules, and everyone entering Mexico now gets 180 days automatically! It was possible to persuade them to give you the maximum of 180 days before, but it depended on the person checking you into the country. I asked twice, and got just 90 days. Twice. Mean swines!
