Tourist Card or Visa?

It is easy for a tourist to enter the country. Depending on what country you hail from you may require either a Tourist Card or a Visa. A select few do not require either, but only a passport.

For most countries from the European Union and the North American continent, only a Tourist Card is required.

You will receive the form for it in the airplane or upon arrival in the country. You can also obtain them online beforehand here. At passport control you are then required to pay the $10US entrance tax and will receive the card in return.

Once you’ve got the card you can stay in the country for 30 days. If you exceed these 30 days, the penalty might get hefty.

Travelers from countries that are on the required visa list will have to fill out a visa request form before their trip and wait for confirmation. Once they are approved they can go ahead with their travel plans and follow the instructions in the visa approval. Visa rejections are often due to low-income responses on the visa form.
