How to Apply for Mexico Tourist Visa for Filipinos


If you are a Filipino who plans to travel to Mexico as a tourist, and you don’t have an existing valid Schengen Visa or US Visa, here’s how you can get your Philippine Passport stamped with Mexico Tourist Visa:
  • Secure all the required documents including your passport that is valid for at least six months beyond the date of your expected exit from the country.
  • Set an appointment for your VISA application - Contact the Mexican Embassy (in Manila) VIA PHONE: (+62)(2)(8122211) LOCAL 109 or 116 VIA EMAIL:
  • Proceed to the Mexican Embassy with all your required documents. SEE THE COMPLETE REQUIREMENTS FOR MEXICAN VISA APPLICATION BELOW
  • Pay the VISA application processing fee amounting to 17 USD - 30 USD. 
  • Wait for your Visa Approval. It usually takes 2-15 days.

Or if you have a DOUBLE ENTRY or MULTIPLE ENTRY JAPAN VISA, you do not need to apply for Mexico Visa!



In accordance to National Institute of Migration of Mexico regulation, effective May 1st, 2010, all foreigners regardless their nationality traveling to Mexico, with a valid USA visa, will be allowed to visit Mexico through any port of entry – air, land, sea- without a Mexican Visa; this includes tourist, transit and business trips.

•         Holders of a valid United States multiple-entry visa do not require a Mexican visa to travel to Mexico for a period of entry not exceeding 180 days and for non-gainful activities. The Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) is NOT considered a valid U.S. visa for the purpose of travelling to Mexico under the exemption of the Mexican visa. The U.S. visa must be stamped on the current passport.


Here are the requirements you have to submit to the Mexican Embassy in Manila:

Travel Tips

There is a way (for Filipinos) to enter Mexico without having to apply for Tourist VISA: Traveling by Cruise Ship. Regarding this cruise, I have confirmed that the cruise ships are mostly form California. Unfortunately, at this moment, there is no cruise coming from Asia.
