The Mayan meaning of “Chich’en Itza” stands for “At the mouth of the well of the Itza”. This well is likely the Sacred Cenote, one of the two huge natural sinkholes located at the site.
Itzá is the title of a cultural Maya group that may have been based off the city of Motul de San José close to lake Peten Itza in Guatemala. Itza translates into ‘enchanted waters’ and may pertain to this lagoon. Many Palestinians’ would love to visit this captivating place in Mexico.

This is Important to Apply for a Mexico Visa

A valid Mexico visa and a Tourist Card are mandatory to visit Mexico, regardless of the objective. The same status is also valid for Palestinians in transit. It is fairly easy to apply for a Mexico visa from any Mexican embassy universally. 

The time it takes to process a Mexican visa depends on the specific embassy to which you are applying. Some only take about two days to process your visa while others may take up to four weeks. So, it is advisable to set up an appointment for a Mexico visa at least four weeks before you intend to travel.

You have to apply for a Mexico visa at a Mexican embassy in Palestine (or the one nearest to you). The application process is as follows:

  1. Interact with the Mexico embassy to book a meeting
  2. Fill applicant’s details in the Mexico Visa Application Form
  3. Gather the necessary documents
  4. Submit the online application
  5. Pay the visa fees

Applicants can get to know when their visa will be processed from the website of their respective Mexico embassy, or they can speak to the officials there about it. The reason for this is that every embassy has a different system of operation. On one hand, one embassy may take just about 2 business days to process a visa, while in another the processing time may approximate 10 business days. Practically speaking, a few embassies suggest that the applicants fix their appointment at least four weeks before your trip.
