On April 1, 2021, the Quintana Roo State Government introduced a new Visitor Tax or Tourism Use Fee for all international visitors to the Mexican Caribbean over the age of 15 of $224 pesos (approximately US$10 per person, depending on the exchange rate).
Visitors may pay the fee before traveling to Cancun, Puerto Morelos, the Riviera Maya or other destinations in the Mexican Caribbean, upon arrival in the state or during their stay. To facilitate online payments, the State Government Tax Office launched the VISITAX website. When accessing this website, visitors complete a form with the following information:
- Number of people traveling
- Name, age and passport number of each individual in the group
- Departure date
- Payment information
Families and groups will be able to pay for all members in one transaction providing that each person’s information is included on the VISITAX form. Separate receipts will be provided for each person. www.visitax.gob.mx/sitio/
As an alternative to using the VISITAX website, visitors can also pay the tax in airport terminals.
International travelers departing the state of Quintana Roo need to show a receipt of payment for the fee at airport checkpoints prior to boarding their flight.
