CANCUN — Mexico’s Quintana Roo has unveiled a new payment system to allow travellers to easily pay its new tourism fee.
The fee, implemented by Quintana Roo’s State of Congress, comes into effect on April 1, 2021 and will cost international travellers approximately US$10 per person, depending on the exchange rate. Travellers can pay prior to their arrival, upon arrival or during their stay. The payment will be verified once they leave the state.
Through the new VISITAX website, travellers will be able to pay the fee and obtain a receipt by filling out a form, which will request the following information: number of people travelling; name, age and passport number of each individual; departure date; and payment information.
Once travellers have concluded their stay in Quintana Roo, they must show their receipt at the airport checkpoint prior to boarding. Travellers who don’t have a receipt at the airport will receive assistance and can make the payment at that time.
For those travelling in groups, it will be possible to make the payment in one single transaction so long as each individual’s information is provided and included in the form. Individualized receipts will be provided. Visitors crossing the border to Quintana Roo via Belize by land will receive a 100% subsidy.
