What you need to know about the new Visitax tax

The fee for receiving a Visitax for a stay in Mexico has changed. The Mexican state authorities are responsible for issuing the permit to stay in Quintana Roo. This tax applies to anyone wishing to visit the state of Quintana Roo in Mexico with its new rules.

How do I pay this new tax?

Regardless of the reason for your stay and whether you want to use Visitax, payment is obligatory and must also comply with the instructions given. Exceptions to the payment of the tax are for health and educational reasons. The payment of the tax on Visitax can be made at any time including your time of departure. The risk here is that you will have to wait in a long queue.

This is because you will be using your passport for payment. Also, the credit card and a valid letter are very important to finalise the payment. The other possibility for you is to pay via PayPal. During the process, you will be asked to fill in a form. This asks for your name, email address, age, date of return from the country.

Within a few minutes, you will get a feedback giving you your unique QR, which you will present to the competent authorities of the country.

The duration of the tax payment process

Payment via the web does not take long at all. In just five minutes, all the details are taken care of. At the end of the process you will receive a confirmation, again online. Your QR code, which you will be given, is the confirmation that you have paid the tax.

This electronic QR code is to be kept and guarded jealously at all times. Because there is a possibility that you will be called by the Mexican authorities to confirm whether you have paid the new tax or not. But once the tax has been paid, you don't have to worry about anything else.
