Reader Mail: First of all, thank you for empowering Filipinas to travel the world! Your bravery is such an inspiration to me. In fact, I started my solo female travel adventures because of your blog. So thank you!!! Anyway I know you are in Mexico now and I want that to be my next destination. Can you tell me how you applied for a Mexico visa for Filipinos? Do I really need 80,000 pesos in the bank? Thank you for your help Trisha!

Abigail Redondo, Philippines

I’m going back to Mexico! But this time, I do not need to apply for a visa. I will be going on a 6-month backpacking trip and will explore more of the northern part of Mexico. During my first visit, I only visited the south and I’m really excited to go back and see my friends!

This post is a step by step guide on how to apply for a Mexico visa for Filipinos residing in the Philippines. Read carefully and let me know if you have any questions!

Mexico Visa for Filipinos

Step 1: Check if you need a visa

As per the OECD agreement, holders of valid Schengen, USA, Canada and Japan visas with multiple entries do not require a visa when entering Mexico. I have a 5-year multiple entries Japanese visa so I can freely go to Mexico whenever I want.

However, I forgot about this. Before doing my research, I already prepared all the requirements needed for the Mexico visa for Filipinos (you know, printed and everything). I wasted so much paper on this!

If you don’t have a valid Schengen, USA, Canada and Japan visas with multiple entries, go to step 2.

Step 4: Go to your appointment

The Embassy of Mexico is located at 150 Legaspi Street, G.C. Corporate Plaza, Legazpi Village, Makati City. Make sure to be there one (1) hour before your appointment. The security guard will ask to see your appointment confirmation letter before letting you in. Make sure to print it as stated above.

You will be asked to pay the visa processing fee of 1,864 PHP as soon as you submit the requirements. Keep the receipt and don’t lose it. You will need it when claiming your visa.

Once you are there, submit all the requirements. In my experience, it wasn’t a formal interview but the person-in-charge at the window will just ask you a few relevant questions for your trip.

Step 5: Wait for the results

Processing time takes 3-5 days. In my first application where I didn’t have a Japan visa yet, I asked the consular office if they can fast track the application to 24 hours. The reason I asked for this is that I am not based in Manila. I simply told them it will save me time and money if they give it to me after one day. They, fortunately, granted my request.

Tips on applying for a Mexico visa for Filipinos

As Philippine passport holders, I noticed how we easily get stressed (not to mention very anxious) in applying for visas, not only for Mexico but everywhere else in the world. I’ve been traveling for the past 12 years with only my Filipino passport and have learned that through patience and correct processing of documents, it is easy to apply for visas anywhere. Below are my tips on applying for a Mexico visa for Filipinos.

Communicate and ask questions

You will not be needing an agent to process your visa. You will do this all by yourself. The Mexican Embassy in Manila is very attentive and will answer all your questions. I know that you always ask travel bloggers like me for tips but the truth is, I cannot answer all your questions because we all have different cases.

One thing I noticed is that Filipinos don’t really like to directly contact Embassies. We are quite intimidated but is there something to lose? If you ring the embassy of Mexico in Manila and ask questions, you will see how smooth-sailing your visa application will be. I applied for a Mexican visa twice in the same embassy and each time I call them, they are always very happy to assist. They also answer quickly via e-mail!

Embassies and consulates are required to answer your questions, whatever that is. So please learn how to communicate with them and do not be intimidated! It is their job to attend to your needs!

THE KEY IS PROVING YOUR FINANCIAL CAPABILITY

I’ve been living in Mexico for the past 2 years and here’s what I learned here: money is everything. Mexico is highly dependent on tourism so they are not really one of those countries that reject people to enter their country. Everyone is welcome! Mexico’s economy is very steady (it doesn’t go up, nor down) but it is not a first-world country.

In all my visa applications, they did not really tell me the exact amount of money needed but I always put between 100,000 – 200,000 PHP. It sure is a lot of money but you won’t spend that amount in Mexico. In some cases, Mexico is way cheaper than the Philippines! I also remember applying for a Mexican visa 6 years ago with only 50,000 PHP in the bank.

I am currently applying for a digital nomad visa in Mexico (temporary residency card) and I can’t wait to share my experience with you! Mexico has a visa for freelancers but my application has been on hold because of COVID. I hope that by March 2021, I will have the digital nomad residency card!

Most readers of this blog can easily plan their trips on their own and if it’s too stressful for you (especially because of COVID), you can always call or e-mail me – I do a lot of customized trip planning that guarantees your most authentic trip experience. Below are the main things I use (and trust) when booking all my trips.

  • Vrbo: In 2021, I am officially supporting VRBO instead of Airbnb. VRBO has a “Book with Confidence Guarantee Program” that is very beneficial especially at this time when our travel plans are always changing.
  • Hostelworld: I backpacked a lot for most of my formative years and always used Hostelworld. This is best for people who travel solo and want to meet friends on their trips!
  • Agoda: This platform has lots of deals and no other booking platform shows the best accommodation discounts!
  • Booking.com: Since I am always traveling indefinitely, I do not always have fixed travel dates. I use Booking because they don’t need a credit card to secure your accommodation. Most of it is on a ‘pay at the property’ set up so you don’t need to pay for a cancellation fee in case your travel plans change.
  • Kiwi.com: You can find the cheapest flights here with the best airlines. What Kiwi does is analyze your route and give you the best prices for your itinerary. Try it and see the difference with other flight booking platforms!
  • E-dreams: I use this platform when booking flights to and from Europe. All the flights here are guaranteed cheap. I once booked a Mexico-Madrid flight for only $300 USD!
  • Get Your Guide: I must admit – sometimes, I am super lazy to do things on my own so I always book the tours here! They are really cheap compared to other tour booking platforms and most of the tours here are not super guided. They give you a lot of free time!
  • TripAdvisor: I book tours here whenever I want to see real-time reviews. The reviews here are from real people so you can always compare their experiences! Tours are super cheap, too!
  • Travelwifi: take the internet with you! As a digital nomad, this is very important to me. If you decide to rent a portable wifi device, use my code PSIMONMYWAY to get a 10% discount.
  • Transferwise: As a digital nomad, handling money in different currencies have always been hard for me. Read my experience with Transferwise here – the best bank for long-term travelers!

      I believe you need a transit visa for Layover in the US. Upon checking-in at NAIA they will ask for your transit visa and if you don’t have it, they will not let you fly and they will not give your tickets.

    Hi Trish,

    Your blog if really amazing especially about giving instructions. I am just quite confused since I’ve also read some other articles before coming to your page. I have a travel to Mexico this January 23, 2020 and I am currently here in Marawi for the Humanirarian Response. I am planning to go back to Manila on the 21st but I am worried since I have read that Filipinos need to get a Mexican Visa, and some says that you can enter if you have a US Visa. Since you have mentioned about Canadian Visa, I am a bit relaxed since I have it until March 2020 with Multiple Entry status. Hence, do I need to apply? I am trying to contact the Embassy but I can’t reached them. When you travel with you Japanese Visa, did our Philippine Immigration seek a visa from you or ask you why you do not have any Mexican Visa?

At the end of 6 months, we could leave for a week and then get another tourist visa? Closest non visa country for her is Colombia. Can she get another tourist visa by entering Mexico that way or does she have to come back to the Philippines and go process again? Also, can she get a Temporary Resident Visa if she has ties to me or if I provide her necessary monthly income?

If he cannot travel alone, mother will be the companion, Is he still need his own bank account or mother’s bank account is enough to justify the capacity to travel? Thank you in giving us light on this matter. God bless you and take care.

I look forward to your response soon po because I’am planning to apply in Mexico Embassy Manila next year probably March 2021.

    Will it be easy for me to apply for transit visa? All layovers I’ve checked are either LA and Canada. Me and my boyfriend are planning to just go to Mexico to be together again. I’m a Filipino working as a nurse here and he’s a Mexican Citizen but is currently working in Vietnam. Its almost a year since we haven’t seen each other so we wanna be together in Mexico.

    Hi Trisha! I am looking at traveling to Mexico this February. Are they open for tourists already? Will I be quarantined when I arrive?

    Hi Trisha, thanks for all the information that you have shared with us. I just have one question. Upon issued, how long is the validity of the visa before it expires?
    Thank you for your help! Much appreciated. Stay safe!

    Hi Ms. Trisha .Thank you for the very informative blog. I have some questions too and i hope to get some info’s from you. I am travelling to mexico this coming feb.3 to meet my american fiance since he cannot come to Philippines to visit me. I am currently unemployed for a year now. And one of the requirements in immigration is bank statements updated for the last 3 months. And he deposited the required amounts in my account already. Is it okey not to tell immigration that I am going to mexico to meet my fiance but instead tell them that i will just go there as tourist alone cause while reading some comments here,i read that one lady got offloaded and asked to provide sponsor’s information.Will they question me about my financial status for having that amount withoùt a job? And how long does it take to recieve a US transit visa from the date of interview? Cause im worried i might not get it before my flight. And last, do i still need to get a transit visa for my 3 hrs layover in japan?
    THANK YOU and i hope to hear from you soon. Enjoy and keep safe always!

    Hi, Trisha! I just wanna ask, is it really necessary yung sa bank statement po na updated sya for the last 3 months kasi po whatever transactions ang nangyayari sa bank ko winiwithdraw ko po sya and iniipon ko siya in a container at home and all of my savings po is wala po sa bank. Okay lang ba na one time ko siya ilalagay sa bank? I have my appointment this coming March 31 po. Thank you so much!

    Can I get a Visa to Mexico to visit my American boyfriend who will also be there? I have over 200,000 php in my bank account & have been receiving a regular stipend of apx 25,000 php every month from my bf directly into my bank account & can show proof. My accommodations are already paid for & my airfare will also be paid for without impacting my bank account. I believe the issue may be I do not currently have a job. Will that be an issue even though I meet all the other financial obligations?
