You may obtain a tourist card from your travel agent, or Mexican airline. you may also obtain a tourist card at any Mexican tourist office, or Mexican Consulate.

Be sure to have your tourist card validated at the point of entry into Mexico, as there are few other places to have that done within Baja.

It is always recommended that you have your tourist card completed before check-in at the airport or border crossing.

You should always carry proof of citizenship!
