Mexico Visa for Croatian Citizens

Visit Mexico by Land or Air
The Gulf of Mexico has scintillating sandy beaches that offer snorkelling besides other adventures. These are just a few of the many tourist attractions that Mexico has to offer visitors. Croatian citizens, waiting patiently to spend a memorable vacation in the country, would need a Mexico Tourist Card and a visa to visit this country of marvels. A single Tourist Card just permits one person to travel on it.

More than one person cannot travel on a single Card. It is approved and granted by The National Immigration Institute, mainly to tourists. Visitors from Croatia must have a visa before they enter Mexico. In order to apply for the Mexico visa, they need to get in touch with the embassy.

Be it via land or by air, to enter Mexico, travelers must have a Mexico Tourist Card. Ever since the implementation of the electronic system in 2015, the entire process is smooth and hassle-free. For some reason if travelers are unable to apply for it online, that they can also apply for it within 30 days after they arrive in Mexico. However, the online process is vigorously recommended.

It’s a good idea to carry hard copies of this document, if possible, in case issues may arise with the email system.

Printouts of both sides of the Mexico Tourist Card are to be carried by the travelers on their visit to Mexico. They will be checked by the immigration officers at the airport. 

For Croatian Applicants to Remember 

Mexico Tourist Card allows only tourism-driven trips. None of the Card holders can legally engage in any type of paid activity during their visit. Croatians must keep safely printouts of this travel document when they reach any Mexican airport. At the time of applying, tourists are asked to enter flight details (Airline Name and Flight Number) concerning their arrival in Mexico.

The online system does not ask for any document to be uploaded. Croatian citizens, during the Mexico Tourist Card application process, must have: 

  1. A Croatian passport, having 180-day validity since they reach Mexico.
  2. Their Mexico landing flight details.

When Reaching Mexico

Upon reaching Mexico, Croatians must keep their Mexico Tourist, visa and their valid passport handy. All these documents go through checks made by the immigration authorities at Mexico Airport. Once again, the passport must fulfil the condition of being valid for 6 months and must be the one that was used to apply for the visa.

Submitting an Application for the Mexico Visa

Everyone headed for Mexico, be it holiday-makers or travelers, or those in-transit must know that a valid Mexico Tourist Visa and a Tourist Card are requisites. Croatians may apply for a Mexico visa from any Mexican embassy in their country or in a foreign country. The time taken to process a Mexico visa is determined by the Mexican embassy where the applicant has registered. Embassies in different geographies have different processing timelines. Applicants from Croatia must therefore book an appointment for a Mexico visa with the corresponding Mexico embassy a minimum of 4 weeks before their scheduled travel date.

A Mexico visa can be applied for at a Mexican embassy in the applicant’s domicile country (or in the any other country). The application process comprises the following steps:

  1. Set up an appointment with the Mexico embassy  
  2. Mexico Visa Application Form Completion
  3. Accumulating the relevant documents
  4. Render the application and pay the fee

The Mexico embassy where the applicant has applied from has the visa processing time mentioned clearly. On the other hand, applicants can also contact the embassy officials to query about the time taken to process their visa. The reason for this is that every embassy has a different timeframe for visa processing. One embassy might take 2 working days, whereas the other might take 10 working days. By the way, some embassies advice applicants to schedule their appointment at least four weeks before their trip.
