Do you need a passport to fly to Mexico or can I go to mexico without it? This is a question we've received from the community. And while it might seem obvious we decided to answer it in a blog post and help fellow travelers.

Yes, absolutely. Bring your passport and double check you have it before traveling ! You need a valid passport to enter Mexico by air, land or sea. Be sure that the expiration date is not closer than 90 days or you can be denied entry.

There is also a requirement to complete an immigration form, Forma Migratoria Multiple Digital (FMMD), which can be obtained online through the Instituto Nacional de Migración (INM) website or alternatively you can fill it upon arrival.
