    Tourist Permit FMT Fee

    Mexico charges a fee to all tourists and business visitors arriving in the country. The fee is approximately US$22, and the money collected is handed to the Tourism Ministry to promote Mexican tourism.

    Airlines normally collect the permit fee on behalf of the Mexican government and include the cost within the total airfare (under 'taxes and surcharges') so in the majority of cases, there will be no need for you to pay the fee separately.

    If you do not arrive in Mexico by airplane, then you will need to pay Mexico's tourist permit fee and complete the FMT Tourist Visa at the border checkpoint if you plan to travel beyond the 35km 'free zone' after crossing the border into Mexico. Failure to obtain the necessary permit will result in a US$40 penalty fee upon returning to the US.

    Stats on US visitors.
    The overall number of arrivals to the U.S. has followed an upward trend since 2010 after taking a post-recession tumble in 2009. The U.S. Commerce Department predicted that the growth would continue as numbers climb from a record 67 million foreign visitors last year to a new high of 69.6 million in 2013.

    If the US followed suit and charged visitors a fee of @22.00
    69.6 x 22.00=one billion five hundred thirty-one million two hundred thousand
    Just think what good that money could serve.

    This scene from Born in East L.A. cracks me up.


    BLOOD IN BLOOD OUT:

    You will never, ever find a better film depicting Mexican gangs. Although it's much more than a gang movie. This film will instantly go on your top 8 list of best movies ever. You will love it.

    Meanwhile coming in is free...just look for 1 of the thousands of holes in the fence.

    Wait $22 is cheap compared to the tax money I pay to those who come in the other way

    I am happy to know that my $22 is supporting the execution of pesky Mexican students by drug cartels.

    They'll send you back for free, though. (It may take them awhile to find all the pieces in the desert and you may be shipped in separate boxes with pieces of other unnamed corpses, but hey, $22 is $22. Am I right?)

    Are Mexicans fond of pork rinds? This is a serious question. In the Walmart I visit in upstate NY they have started carrying weird items (bars of laundry soap, corn chips marked Nitro or Fuego, and like 4 kinds of pork rinds) for the migrant workers.

    We went to Cancun several years ago. It was beautiful, and the hotel staff treated us like we were royalty. I don't think I've ever had as relaxing a vacation. But I'm never going back to Mexico -- I'm quite attached to my head, I don't want to have it removed from my body during some cartel's resort invasion.
