Mandatory tax for visitors to Quintana Roo: VisiTax

From April of last year, Quintana Roo, the State of Mexico, has developed a brand new tourist tax: the VisiTax tax. It is a tax that is applied to foreign visitors over the age of 4 who visit the Quintana Roo State. Once you pay it, it remains valid for the entire time you are in the state. Its payment is made in a single way.

The VisiTax tax: what is it?

Developed since April 2021 by the Quintana Roo state of Mexico, the VisiTax tax is imposed on all foreign visitors who visit this state. Please note that the purpose of the levy is to raise funds needed to develop local tourism. If during your visit to the State of Quintana Roo you are accompanied by your child under 4 years old, know that he will be exempt from the tax.

However, it is compulsory for children aged 4 or over in the same way as adults. You will therefore need to be prepared to pay this tax for yourself and for anyone (at least 4 years old) accompanying you if you travel to this state. Once you have completed your business in Quintana Roo, you will be asked to provide proof of tax payment before leaving the state.

Be sure to pay her so you don't face any difficulties. If you are visiting a state other than Quintana Roo, the tax will not be charged during your stay. For more information, take a look at Visitax.
