*Belizeans are reminded that VISA IS NOT REQUIRED to travel to Mexico.
*The Embassy of Mexico’s consular services will be closed December 25th and 28th and on January 1st, 2010.


Press Release – Mexican Embassy – December 16th, 2009 – In order to welcome Belizean residents who wish to visit Mexico during the holiday season, the Embassy of Mexico reminds the public the following regulations:
Belizean nationals are reminded that a visa is not required to travel to Mexico as a tourist or in transit through Mexican territory to another country. To enter Mexico, they will only need to hold a valid Belizean passport and fill out a tourist immigration form which is obtained free of cost at any of the points of entry into Mexico, at any of the borders, maritime ports or international airports. They will be able to enter Mexico multiple times within the period of time authorized by Mexican immigration officials.

Residents in Belize with passports from other countries, like Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and Nicaragua among other nationalities, need a Mexican visa to travel to Chetumal or any other part of Mexico. US, UK and Canadian nationals, among others, do not need a Mexican visa. Before visiting Mexico, it is advised to consult the list of countries whose nationals require visa at the Embassy of Mexico Consular Section or the web site www.sre.gob.mx

Belizeans who hold a Mexican border card (FMVL) can continue using it in the usual manner to travel exclusively to Quintana Roo (Chetumal, Tulum, Playa, Cancun) with a maximum stay of 3 days. The border card FMVL does not allow travel to Merida or any other part of Mexico outside Quintana Roo, but it is required to use a passport. Belizeans that wish to work, study or do business in Mexico, will need to apply for the appropriate visa.

The Embassy of Mexico will be closed on Friday 25 (Christmas) and Monday 28 December (celebration of Boxing Day), and Friday 1 December 2010 (New Year Day). The Honorary Consulate of Mexico in Corozal will be closed from 24 December to 7 January 2010.

For any inquiry and further information about visas and consular services, please contact the Consular Section, telephone number 223-0193 or 223-0194, Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. or the Honorary Consulate in Corozal, telephone number 422 20 49. Visit the Embassy of Mexico’s web page www.sre.gob.mx/belice/ or write to consular@embamex.bz.

My husband and I jsut went through a big kerfluffle at the border last week. I come and go to Mexico on a 6 month visa which has the exit fee paid already, and is good for another 5 weeks. He is coming and going on a border card and never stays more than 3 days without reporting to the border. When exiting last week they tried to take my visa away and told my husband that he couldnt come and go on a border card. He STRAIGHTENED them out and we exited without losing my visa. When we came back he got a 6 month visa and paid the exit fee AT THE BANK, and has come and gone now without incident. It is Christmas time and everyone has their hustle on, even Mexican immigration. So be aware.
