For Mexico Visa Applicants

It is vital information for Congolese tourists, holiday-makers or travelers on their way to Mexico, whether as travelers or in-transit, to know that a valid Mexico Tourist Visa and a Tourist Card are mandatory to have. Congo citizens can apply for a Mexico visa from any Mexican embassy abroad. The processing time for a Mexico visa depends on the embassy in which you are applying. Embassies may take about two days to process your visa or they may take up to four weeks. Hence, it is wise to schedule an appointment for a Mexico visa with the corresponding Mexico embassy at least four weeks before your planned travel date.

You can apply for a Mexico visa at a Mexican embassy in your country (or the one nearest to you). Here are the steps that are involved while applying for the Mexico Visa:

  1. Engage with the Mexico embassy to schedule an appointment
  2. Fill up the Mexico Visa Application Form
  3. Put together the required documents
  4. Submit the application and pay the fee

Check the website of the Mexico embassy where you will apply from or contact them to know the processing time for a visa. That’s because not all embassies work at the same pace, and while one might process your visa within 2 working days, another might take 10 working days. In fact, some embassies recommend you schedule your appointment at least four weeks before your trip.
