From august 18th, Mexico will require a stamped visa for Brazilians

As of August 18, 2022, all Brazilian passport holders must have a stamped visa to enter Mexico. Since November 2021, Mexico’s National Institute of Migration (INM) was requiring an electronic travel authorization issued on SAE platform. Regarding the new visa requirement decision, here are some important points:

  •  All Brazilian citizens who intend to travel to Mexico after August 18th, must make a prior appointment for the consular interview and analysis of documents. Currently, Mexico has consular offices in Brazilian territory in: Brasília, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo;
  • It is important to note that each Consulate can request a different document list depending on the type of visa;
  • There are some exceptions where the stamped Mexican visa will be waived. For Brazilian passport holders who:
    • Possess a valid document proving permanent residence in Canada, the United States, Japan, the United Kingdom or any of the countries that are part of the Schengen Area or member countries of the Pacific Alliance;
    • Hold a valid and current visa from Canada, the United States, Japan, the United Kingdom or from any of the countries that are part of the Schengen Area. The valid visa can be plastic, stamped on the passport or electronic.

The consular representation of the Government of Mexico in Brazil does not recommend issuing airline tickets before having the Mexican visa stamped on the passport.
