The Mexican state of Quintana Roo is well-known for being one of the top destinations in the world for its natural beauty, beaches, crystal clear waters, and cultural richness. The area has become a popular tourist destination for travelers from all over the globe looking for relaxation, adventure, and excitement. As a result, the government has made it mandatory for international travelers to pay a tax when arriving in the area. This tax is known as visitax and can be paid online or at the airport. In this article, we will explain everything you need to know about visitax and how to pay it.
Who Needs To Pay Visitax?
In general, all international visitors who arrive in the state of Quintana Roo (home to Cancun, Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, Isla Mujeres and Tulum) must pay the VISITAX. This fee is enforced by law and those who fail to pay will be subject to fines or legal action.
While the VISITAX may seem like an additional cost, it is in fact a necessary part of tourism development in the region. The money collected from the tax is used for infrastructure improvements throughout the state, ensuring that the best possible experience is delivered to visitors.
To make the process of paying for the VISITAX as simple as possible, we recommend that you pay it online. By doing so, you can avoid lengthy lines at the airport and receive your QR code receipt right away. In order to do so, simply click on our application form and enter the required information such as departure date, number of people traveling and their names, ages and passport numbers. The system allows up to ten visits to be processed on a single transaction, which makes it convenient for families and groups traveling together.
