Mexico Visa for Ghanaian Citizens

Visit Mexico by Land or Air
Mexico City (Ciudad de México) is not only the capital of the country and the seat of government; it is one of the country's most popular alternative travel destinations, thanks to its many world-class museums, art galleries, and attractions. 
To reach Mexico and avail the opportunities it has to offer for tourists, besides a visa, Ghanaian citizens must have a Mexico Tourist Card. This Card can be applied for online.
The National Immigration Institute issues this travel document primarily for tourism-related activities. For tourists from Ghana, having a visa is compulsory to enter Mexico. They need to contact the embassy for the visa.

Ghanaian citizens must have a Mexico Tourist Card to travel to Mexico by land or air routes. They can apply for it online. After processing, this travel document is sent to the applicant’s email id.
Travel buffs can benefit from the online application which is strongly stressed on, such that it does away with embassy visits and long waiting hours. 

Steps to get a Mexico Tourist Card
Applying Online for a Mexico Tourist Card

The online process is a relief. Here is how it works: 

Populating the Application: Ghanaian travelers must populate the Tourist Card application form online. The details entered must be precise and factual. 

Don’t Upload Documents: In the online process, there is no need to upload any document. Only a valid passport number that goes into the form is required.

Fee Payment: Payment of the fee is the final step, via a valid credit or a debit card.

The applicants receive the Mexico Tourist Visa on their email ID after processing.

Travelers would need to take printouts of both sides of the Mexico Tourist Card and carry it with them while going to Mexico. This makes the checks by immigration officials at the country’s airport more convenient. 

Things to Know for Mexico Tourist Card Applicants

Travelers should be aware that the Mexico Tourist Card only allows entry and stay in the country for the purpose of tourism. The holder cannot indulge in any form of paid activities such as employment or professional services throughout their stay in the country. Visitors from Ghana must keep ready printouts of this document while entering the country through any Mexican airport. Applying online also requires travelers to provide information related to their flight tickets in the application form.

Document Upload Not Required

The online process saves the need for Ghanaian citizens to upload any type of document. They must have the following with them: 

  1. A passport with 6 months validity since they arrive in Mexico.

  2. Airlines and ticket details pertaining to their arrival in Mexico.

Getting into Ghana

Travelers from Ghana would not be allowed to enter the country without the Mexico Tourist Card. A visa is also required. Visitors must have both these in hand, along with their passport upon reaching a Mexican airport.
The immigration authorities at the airport will scrutinize these documents. To reiterate, the passport carried by the traveler must be valid for 6 months or 180 days and must be the same that was used to apply for the visa. 

Vital Information on the Mexico Visa

Are you heading for vacation, tour, adventure to Mexico from Ghana? or in-transit? Ensure that you have a valid Mexico Tourist Visa and a Tourist Card. A Mexico visa can be applied for from any Mexican embassy in your state of origin or a different country where you are living presently. 

The required period to process a Mexico visa is not the same in every Mexican embassy, depending on their operative procedures. Numerous Mexican embassies are likely to have different visa-processing durations. It is therefore wise for applicants to secure an appointment for a Mexico visa with the Mexico embassy they play to apply at. This booking of appointment must happen at least four weeks before their tentative travel date.

It is equally easy to apply for a Mexico visa at a Mexican embassy in the Ghanian applicant’s own country (or in a different country). The application process can be simply divided into the following steps:

  1. Get an appointment fixed with the Mexico embassy 
  2. Fill up the Mexico Visa Application Form with the required particulars

  3. Gather the appropriate documents

  4. Pay visa fee
The website of the Mexico embassy from where the applicant has applied is likely to display the visa processing time. Besides, applicants can also speak with the embassy officials to know when they would get their processed visa. The visa processing time may range from 2 working days to 10 working days, depending on the embassy applied at. In fact, a few embassies advise applicants to schedule their appointment at least four weeks before their tour.
