Visas Information

Mexico Visa requirements

  • If you intend to attend the Seminar, and require a visa to enter Mexico, we advise that you register for the conference as early as possible to receive your visa support letter and maximise the time for visa applications to be processed.
  • It is very important that participants who need a visa to enter Mexico apply and book their visa appointment as soon as possible at the appropriate Mexican Consulate.
  • When a visa is issued, the visa is valid for entry into Mexico for 6 months.
  • Mexican Consulates do not handle rapid-process or short notice visa requests, so late applications are unlikely to be successful.
  • An immigration lawyer cannot ensure obtaining a visa for entry into Mexico in time for the Conference if the visa is not requested in advance.
  • On payment of your delegate fee, the Mexican Council for Medical Tourism will issue a visa letter confirming your registration at the conference to support your visa application.
  • Some consulates have considerable waiting times to grant appointments, particularly the Mexican Consulate in India

Exemptions to Visa requirements

  • All foreign visitors, regardless of their nationality, traveling to Mexico for tourism, business or in transit to another destination, are exempt from presenting a Mexican visa as long as they have a valid visa issued by any the following countries: Canada, Japan, the United States of America, the United Kingdom or any of the countries comprising the Schengen Area.
  • Foreign visitors who, regardless of their nationality, have a valid permanent resident card from Canada, Chile, Colombia, Japan, Peru, the United States of America, the United Kingdom or any of the countries comprising the Schengen Area, do not require a Mexican visa.
