As announced by the Quintana Roo government on March 19, 2021, beginning April 1, all international visitors to the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, 15 years and older, will need to pay a Tourist Usage Fee of $224 Mexican pesos (MXN), approximately $10 USD depending on the exchange rate. Popular vacation destinations in the state include, but are not limited to Cancun, the Riviera Maya, Playa Del Carmen, Tulum, and Cozumel.
The payment portal link to the VISITAX website is now live: www.visitax.gob.mx
Payment must be made prior to the traveler’s departure using an official payment platform which will be available in the upcoming days. The following information will be required:
- Departure date
- Number of people traveling
- Name, age, and passport number – for each traveler
- Data to make the payment electronically
This site provides the process to pay the fee for up to 10 foreign passengers arriving to the state. If a party has more than 10 passengers, a 2nd payment will need to be processed for the remaining people in the group.
The site is initially in Spanish, but in the upper right corner, you will see a ‘dropdown’ menu which provides a EN option for English.
Amstar representatives attending customers in the state of Quintana Roo will include in the important information provided to travelers, a reminder about to pay the newly implemented Tourism Usage Fee to avoid complications at the airport on departure day.
