The basic conditions for the Mexican Tourist Card for Indian nationals include the following:
- Have a Mexican visa previously issued
- Possess a passport issued by the Republic of India valid for 6 months or more on their arrival date
- Use an email address to register their FMM petition
- Provide a bank card to pay the Forma Migratoria Múltiple processing fee
As mentioned above, Indian citizens need to confirm they have been granted a Mexican visa. Without it, they will not be eligible to initiate their Mexican Tourist Card application.
Indian nationals should check their passport will be valid for 180 days or more when they reach Mexico. If this condition is not met, we require they submit their passport for renewal with their local authorities at their earliest possibility before beginning their Forma Migratoria Múltiple petition.
Indians with dual nationality should remember the Forma Migratoria Múltiple is linked to the passport they will use when entering the country. This means they must confirm to reach Mexico with the same passport they used for their FMM request.
All communications regarding the Mexican Tourist Card application will be issued online, so we recommend Indian petitioners use an email account they frequently access. Lastly, it is best to confirm their bank cards have been previously activated for online payments.
