Is Mexican visitor visa needed for less than 30 day visit?

Recommended Posts



I'm planning to go for H1B visa stamping in Mexico. Since I don't have a H1B visa, do I need to get Mexican visitor visa to enter into Mexico? My stay won't be longer than 1 to 2 weeks.


Please suggest.

As far as I know if you have valid I-797 and I-94, you are eligible for ARV upto 30 days.

AVR is to enter US with a valid I797 and I94 within 30 days visit and not to enter Mexico.

Thank you all for your quick reply. I'm planning to enter Mexico near San Diego/Tijuana boarder, which let you cross by walk. I read in the forums that there is no Mexican immigration check as you enter into Mexico (as US does when we enter into US).


And I do have i-797 and i-94 (valid for the next 2 years), not to mention my previous H1B visa got expired an year ago.

I just want to know the facts around Mexican visitor visa. If needed I'll go ahead and apply for it.
