PASSPORTS & VISAS
The 2019 IAF-ILAC Mid-Term Meetings will be held at the
Hilton Mexico City Reforma Hotel from 04 – 11 April 2019.
Neither ILAC or IAF has asked any housing management companies to solicit members – if you receive a call/email from someone offering to reserve your bedroom for the IAF-ILAC Mid-Term Meetings – do not accept. This is generally a scam. Delegates should book their own accommodations.

ALL FOREIGN VISITORS ENTERING MEXICO
All visitors are required to present the immigration authority with a Multiple Migratory Form (FMM) when arriving in Mexico. The FMM is a document completed by every foreigner entering Mexico that serves as a proof of their legal stay in the country.
If you are traveling by air, it will be given to you by the airline when entering the country. It can also be obtained at the counters of the airport, before passing through immigration. If you are entering by land, it will be given to you at the point of entry.
You will need to keep the FMM with you during your stay in Mexico and give it back when leaving the country, either to the airline (when leaving by air) or to the immigration authorities (when leaving by land).
If you are entering by land, when you fill your FMM you will be required to pay $500 pesos for the migratory fee. If you are entering by air, the cost is generally included in your flight ticket.
