Passport holders from countries on Mexico’s visa exempt list do not need to apply for a formal visa to visit Mexico. For countries that do not need a visa to enter Mexico, a Visitor’s Permit (FMM) will need to be filled out in place of a visa. The FMM permit can be acquired directly through the airline or port of entrance showing a valid passport and valid permanent resident card. The permit allows visitors to attend conferences and meetings in Mexico for up to 180 days. If the country does not appear on the visa exempt list in which visitors are traveling from, check with the nearest local Mexican Consulate for details of visa entry requirements or
Obtaining a Visa
If you are required to obtain a visa for entry into Mexico, it is your responsibility to apply for a passport, visa or any other required documents and to demonstrate to consular officials that you are properly classifiable as a visitor under Mexican law. ICE Show Management cannot assist you with the interview process, nor can anyone representing the sponsoring organizations call an embassy or consulate on your behalf to provide support for granting a visa. Should your application be denied, show management can neither intervene in the process nor change the decision of the governmental agency. You may request a letter by selecting the box either online or on the printed registration form. Invitation letters will be sent to those that are registered and fully paid. ICE show management supplies this letter for visa purposes only. All expenses involved with attending the convention are the responsibility of the attending party. If your visa application is denied and AAPG received a copy of the denial by email or fax +1 918 560 2684 before 6 September 2016 your registration fee will be refunded, less a $75 processing fee.
Registering with Your Embassy
ICE Show Management suggests that tourists register with their country’s consulate or embassy when traveling.
