Visitors can print or take a screenshot of the QR codes, and keep them on hand to be scanned by local authorities at Customs.
Most airlines are no longer handing out the Immigration and Customs Form, so we encourage everyone to do these before you travel. Fill them out, print them and carry them with you. Be sure to sign them where required. One per person. You will present the immigration card on arrival. The Immigration officer will stamp and tear off the bottom half of the form and put it in your passport. KEEP IT THERE. Do not lose it or you will pay a hefty fine upon return. As for the Customs form, someone will collect these as your bags are being scanned/screened thru customs. If no one collects it, don't worry, sometimes they collect them and sometimes they don't.
Departure Tourist Tax - Effective April 1st, 2021 Approximately $10 per person) (For Cancun, Riviera Maya and Cozumel ONLY) This is quick online form, that you really should do before you exit the USA as it will save you time and stress. The form will ask you a few questions: name(s), age(s), passport number(s), departure date, and data for electronic payment. Upon completion of payment, you will receive a receipt in the form of a QR code. Payment for families and groups may be made in a single transaction with individual QR code receipts provided. NOTE: currently there are no kiosks or anyone at the airport collecting receipts or looking for QR codes. This could change at any time, so we do encourage you to pay this tax before your vacation starts. It isn't much money and it does help the local community.
