You will need to compelete a Tourisr Card and most likely a customs form. If flying direct from the UK you should get and complete them on the plane. However if you look under top questions there is 1 called 'Online Tourist



Which should take you through i think. Complete within 30 days prior to travel. I haven't done it this way yet but i belive many have.

I think there is 1 for the customs form too but not sure

If you have a UK passport, you don't need a visa for Mexico, but all visitors must complete a tourist card known as Forma Migratoria Múltiple or FMM.

The FMM is usually handed out on the plane, so carry a pen so you can complete it on the plane. You should also get a Customs form on the plane.

If you don't get forms on the plane, they are available inside Cancun airport.

If you want to complete the forms on-line, here's the official site for the on-line FMM tourist card...


It can be completed online within 30 days of your departure date. One form per traveller. Print it and bring it with you. Perforate or make a hard crease in the paper so the Immigration officer can tear it easily. There is no fee to get or complete the form online. To complete the on-line form, your passport must be valid for at least 180 days after your arrival date in Mexico.

When you go through Immigration, the Immigration officer returns half of the FMM tourist card to you. Keep it with your passport and don't lose it because it must be handed in upon departure from Mexico.

Here's the link to the Customs website where you can complete the form....


It can be completed online within 3 days of your departure date. Print it and bring it with you. One form per family living at the same address. There is no fee to get or complete the form online.

Note: If you land at Cancun Terminal 4, you won't need the Customs form because the form has been eliminated.
