According to the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Trust, with this program, tourists arriving in Puerto Vallarta will no longer have to present this printed or digital format; managing to stamp their passports through a more agile process, to pass the immigration filter in just 10 minutes on average; however, gradually the times will decrease.
Currently, the Puerto Vallarta International Airport has around 20 migration agents and 14 filters, which speeds up the process with this new format implemented in the air terminal.
It is worth mentioning that Puerto Vallarta has received an average of 1,106,550 passengers from international markets so far this year. This format collects the data of each person who enters Mexican territory, such as their full name, passport number, address where they will stay and the reason for their trip.
Now, visitors from the United States and Canada will only have to show their passport, and Customs officers will take some information, stamp it and automatically grant permission to stay in the country.
