Mexico Entry and Tax Exemption Tips

When entering Mexico, all non-Mexican visitors must complete the Multiple Digital Migration Form (FMMd). Each individual can do so by accessing the online form (only available in Spanish) or via a paper form provided by airlines during your flight.

Non-Mexicans also qualify for a 16% VAT exemption at hotels by presenting a copy of their immigration form upon check-in. Without this form, the exemption is forfeited.

Please note, Mexican residents are subject to a 16% VAT at hotels, payable at check-in.
