Please take note of the latest update regarding the new Quintana Roo, Mexico Tourist Usage Fee which went into effect April 1, 2021 and applies to all foreign travelers. Quintana Roo is a Mexican state on the Yucatán Peninsula. On its Caribbean coast, the town of Tulum offers seaside Mayan ruins, sandy beaches and undersea caverns. To the northeast, the resort city of Cancún is known for its nightlife, Nichupté Lagoon nature reserve and long beaches with coral reefs. Off Cancún’s coast, the tiny, reef-fringed island of Isla Mujeres has nature trails and beachfront restaurants.

The payment portal link to the VISITAX website is now live:

This website provides the process to pay the fee for up to 10 travelers arriving to the state. If a party has more than 10 passengers, a 2nd payment will need to be processed for the remaining people in the group. This electronic payment can be made anytime prior to the traveler’s departure.

In addition to the payment website, travelers can also pay the Tourist Usage Fee in cash at the airport on the day of departure.
