Immigration, Tourist Visa

This was reported today, Nov. 18, on another Mazatlan forum.

There were lengthy delays at the Mazatlan airport due to North of Border airlines not having the new immigration forms. It was stated that it was taking about an hour and a half for people to have their passport approved.

Does anyone have any first hand, on the ground info on this issue?

It's been discussed on several other Mexican forums also over the last few months. If the plane you're on doesn't have the forms to fill out while in flight, you have to do it at the airport. This happens occasionally traveling to foreign countries. Makes for bigger lines when more than one flight arrives at the same time. Nothing to be upset about or ruin your vacation over.

We flew in US airways and were given a English and Spanish form and told to copy from the English form. There was a shortage of the English forms but I filled out the wife's on the English one and then just filled mine out. The forms were all a little different from last year but still relatively simple. I can't imagine the forms requiring more than a few minutes to complete IF you have a pen. Maybe that was the holdup, 80 or so people getting off the plane and only one pen....

I have not seen a downloadable one for US citizens that would be considered acceptable to Mexican immigration.
