Tourist Visa from Nigeria to Mexico

  • The tourist visa is issued to people who wish to visit Mexico for tourism or leisure. Those who wish to visit friends and family members residing in Mexico will also need this visa.
  • An invitation letter from the friend or relative you are paying a visit to should be provided. The letter should have the valid home address and telephone number of your host.
  • While on a tourist visa, you may attend Mexican festivals and events. Applicants are required to present a letter from their current employer stating an awareness of leave. This letter will also serve to confirm that the applicant has the intentions of returning to his home country.
  • Your position in the company, the term of your employment, and the duration of your leave should be stated in the letter.
  • Mexico offers visa exemption to many nationalities — basically anybody with a valid visa from the US, UK, Canada or the Schengen area.
  • You must fill a Forma Migratoria Múltiple (FMM) card before you enter Immigration and Customs at your port of entry. Normally, an FMM card will be given to you on your inbound flight.
  • At your first port of entry in Mexico, you have to go through the Customs and Immigration. You will be asked about your purpose of travel, whether it’s your first time in Mexico, etc.
  • Depending on how you answer these questions, your passport will be stamped.
  • The number of days you will be allowed to stay will be marked on the FMM card. Usually, it would be 180 days.
  • You must retain the FMM card while you are in Mexico. If you lose, you have to pay a penalty on your exit.
  • You have to return the FMM card to the airline staff on your exit. If you lose your FMM card, you must pay a penalty.
  • To avoid any penalties and delays on your exit, make sure to keep the FMM card safe while you are in the country.
