Mexico Visa for Israeli Citizens

Visit Mexico by Land or Air

Why visit Mexico for your next vacation?   

For the residents of Israel, Mexico can be a sunny paradise where you can dip your feet in the beaches, dance to the tunes of salsa, or dive into the culturally rich atmosphere of the open markets and the mountain ranges.

The natural beauty of the Pacific coastal city is to die for. For a visit to the magical lands of Mexico, all the Israeli citizens need to do is obtain a Tourist Card and a visa. They can apply for a Tourist Card online, which is a hassle-free process.

No need to wait in the long queues outside the immigration office anymore. However, in the case of a visa, you will have to visit the Mexico embassy personally and apply for it. Note that Israeli citizens will need both the visa and the Tourist Card to enter Mexico.  

It is recommended that you carry clear printouts of both the visa and the Tourist Card during your travel across Mexico. Also, make sure you apply for the visa/tourist card at least 4 weeks prior to your travel as the processing time varies depending upon your country of origin. 

As a Tourist Card holder, you are entitled to enjoy everything that this nation has to offer. However, you are not permitted to take up any jobs or professional assignments during your stay.
