Mexico Visa for Norwegian Citizens

Visit Mexico by Land or Air

The Zócalo plaza is in the heart of Mexico City and traces back to the Aztec period, sprawling across the Templo Mayor (an ancient Aztec temple) as well as the Palacio Nacional (a colonial mansion housing offices of Mexico’s president). Located right next to the Zócalo is La Catedral Metropolitana, a splendid basilica with a gold altar. It’s an exemplar of Spanish colonial structural design. This is amid the numerous territories of Mexico that Norwegian citizens can relish on their trip to this country. To achieve this, a visa and a Mexico Tourist Card is most required.

Applying online for the Mexico Tourist Card is a painless undertaking. This document is allocated by the National Immigration Institute exclusively for promoting tourist activities. The Tourist Card is not the same as a visa and travelers bound from Norway should necessarily have both documents to get into Mexico. To secure a visa, they would be required to liaison with the embassy.


Without regard to their travel; by land or by air, Norwegian citizens must have a Mexico Tourist Card. With the electronic process in action, applying for an ETA or Tourist Card online has become the choice of applicants. In this process, applicants receive the Card on their email IDs. Prospective travelers reap the benefits of applying online because they have plenty of time and convenience on their hands since they do not have to visit an embassy or wait in queues to get an appointment. Besides, the online process of applying is strongly advised.

Documentation that Matters

Though Norwegian citizens are not required to upload any type of document when applying online, they must have these handy: 

  1. A passport with a validity of 6 months or 180 days from the date after they arrive in Mexico.
  2. The airlines and ticket information of the arrival flight into Mexico.

What on Reaching Mexico

Visitors from Norway must have three documents in hand to enter Mexico:

  • A Mexico Tourist Card
  • A visa
  • A valid passport

To reiterate, a visa is also compulsory in addition to the other two documents. These documents are reviewed and cleared by the immigration authorities before the travelers are allowed into Mexico. Regarding the passport, it must be the same one used in the online application and must have six-month validity.

Way to Apply for the Mexico Visa

A valid Mexico visa and a Tourist Card are ‘must-haves’ if you are traveling to Mexico for any purpose. The same shall apply to those in transit. For Norwegian nationals, applying for a visa from any Mexican embassy across the world is pretty straightforward. The time for processing a Mexican visa differs from one Mexico embassy to another, depending on their style of working and location. This time may extend from 2 days to 4 weeks. Hence it would be unwise not to book an appointment for a Mexico visa, 4 weeks before the intentional travel.

If you are from Norway, you can apply for a Mexico visa from a Mexican embassy in your own land (or from an area where you are posted). The steps of application are:

  1. Communicate with the Mexico embassy to get an appointment
  2. Filling information in the Mexico Visa Application Form
  3. Sorting and organizing the required papers
  4. Submitting the application
  5. Paying the visa fee

It is insightful to check the Mexico embassy website to know the processing time for your visa. Embassies generally advise applicants to schedule their appointment at least four weeks before their trip.
