Here are the latest forms, requirements, and taxes required for a Resort Vacation in the Cancun and Riviera Maya areas of Mexico – updated April 2022.
 
TOURIST CARD
Fill out the Forma Migratoria Múltiple (FMME) also known as the Tourist Card, online prior to travel. You can also fill it out on the plane. Keep the bottom half as it’s needed for the departure flight! This is not a new requirement…it has always been around.
 
TOURIST TAX
Pay the Mexico Tourist Tax, aka the VisiTax, ONLINE prior to your vacation and download the voucher to show at the airport prior to departure. If you forget to do this, you can purchase it at the airport. At the time of this writing, it cost 224MXN ($11.22) per person over 15 years of age. Bring cash. This one is new. 
 
COVID TEST & ATTESTATION FORM (updated APRIL 2022)
As soon as you check into your resort make an appointment to get a pre-departure Covid test. All air passengers coming to the United States, including U.S. citizens and fully vaccinated people, are required to have a negative COVID-19 test result no more than 1 day before travel or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 in the past 3 months before they board a flight to the United States. See: https://www.cdc.gov/quarantine/order-safe-travel.html (updated 4/4/2022)
 
When you get your negative Covid test results back fill out the Attestation form. This is a CDC requirement to get back into the US.
Check your airline’s app to see if it can be uploaded directly. If you have access to a computer, you may do it online. For example, here is the online form for Delta. If you can’t fill it out from the app or online have a printed copy of the results. MAKE SURE your name and birthday are EXACTLY as it appears on your passport. 
* Fingers crossed this requirement will be retired soon!
 
Personal note – I have heard from travelers and other travel agents returning from Mexico in early 2022, that some resorts had long lines to get the test (especially during Spring Break last month) AND some of these resorts are allowing guests to pay a resort fee to “skip to the front of the line” and receive a guaranteed negative test result!! I’ve also been told some of these resorts have tip jars in the testing room! This is shocking but not surprising since the resorts in Mexico have no motivation to keep guests who test positive for Covid. Traveler beware. 
 

NO LONGER REQUIRED: 

As of March 2022, it is NOT necessary to fill out the MEXICO Health Questionnaire to fly to/from Mexico 

On the morning of your departure (maximum 12 hours prior to departure) fill out the Mexico Health Questionnaire online. You can do this on your cell phone but I recommend creating an account prior to departure so you can do this easily from your cell phone. Just remember your email and password! While this is definitely a requirement for departure, it is not a bad idea to fill it out prior to your trip too. 
 
I hope these tips make your vacation to Mexico smooth and stress free. You deserve a relaxing vacation!
