A bit more information about the FMM...
It can be completed online within 30 days of your departure date. One form per traveller. Print it and bring it with you. Perforate or make a hard crease in the paper so the Immigration officer can tear it easily. There is no fee to get or complete the form online.
For the Customs form, the link above goes directly to the on-line form, but here's the link to the Customs website...
Under "Declaration online", click "Read more". It can be completed online within 3 days of your departure date. Print it and bring it with you. One form per family living at the same address. There is no fee to get or complete the form online.
It should be mentioned that there are other websites where these forms can be obtained, but they not the official websites, and I know at least one that charged a fee -- there should never be a fee to complete these forms on-line.
There is also a link to a .pdf version of the Customs form, and from reading forum reports, it seems that this form is sometimes not accepted by Customs officers.
And, for anyone arriving at Cancun Terminal 4, the Customs form is no longer required.
Thanks Copilot! Great addition to top questions.
If you use the online immigration form, I hope you don't get the older immigration guy who is always on the rightmost open lane. He doesn't like them!
Will the old guy accept them?
'Will the old guy accept them?'
better question would be: Can you get past the Beagle? ;)
No issues at all for us and our home-printed forms. One customs agent proudly pulled out his metal ruler he uses to separate the FMM and ripped away.
And no red light for us this time either!Edited: 29 March 2018, 14:03
