The Mexican visa policy defines the conditions international travelers must meet before applying for the online Mexican Tourist Card. German passport holders can request the FMM, provided their visit is temporary and for one of the reasons mentioned above.
It is advisable to read the visa requirements for German travelers before applying for the FMM.
The basic conditions for the Forma Migratoria Múltiple for nationals of Germany include the following:
- Have a valid German passport valid for at least 180 days on their arrival date
- Provide an active email address
- Possess a bank card to pay the FMM processing fee
German applicants must take into account the validity of their passports. If they expire 6 months before their trip to Mexico, they must be renewed at their earliest possibility.
German visitors must remember to request the FMM with the same passport as the one they will be traveling with. This is important for Germans with dual citizenship. If they reach Mexico with a different passport from the one they applied with, they will not be allowed entry.
We recommend travelers from Germany register an email account they use frequently when completing the FMM form. All communications regarding their application, including the resolution, will be sent to this address, so it is handy to have this information accessible.
Lastly, the Mexican Tourist Card’s processing fees will be paid online by a secure digital platform. German applicants must use a debit or credit card authorized for online payments.
Germans who would like to travel to Mexico for longer periods of time or other purposes such as long-term relocation or professional opportunities should note the Mexican Tourist Card does not apply to their needs. In their situation, we recommend they schedule an appointment at the Mexican embassy in Berlin for more suited visa options.
