Not for tourists visiting for less than 6 months (assuming you have a UK passport). You will fill in an immigration form on the plane that is called a tourist card or FMT (although confusingly sometimes called a tourist visa!). This is free.

I have a friend, she is a Russian citizen, living in the United States. Does she need a visa to travel to Mexico for a week vacation?

Thanks,

Jay

According to the Mexican government website at www.sre.gob.mx/servicios/visas/extran.htm#2 visitors with a Russian passport WILL need a tourist visa. They must get one from their nearest Mexican consulate.

You will need to check with your travel agent about the machine readable passport, but it does need to be within date by 6 months upon your return.

You don't need a full visa - you get an "entry" form to complete on the plane - like you would if you were to travel to the US.

Give your agent a call and ask - or in most brochures it normally states the procedure.

Happy Travels!!
