For those that haven't heard the good news, this posted earlier on NOSA's web site.....
The Mexican government informed NOSA yesterday that they will be enforcing the boat tourist visa fee on N2E racers that go ashore in Mexico. In prior years this was waived by local authorities. But this year the federal government is taking an active role. Wonderful. Not the kind of surprise we like.
We asked and received clarifications this morning on the implementation in Ensenada. We are continuing to lobby officials to avoid this process or at the very least make this hurdle as painless as possible.
Currently, a fee of $35 per person, for a visa, will be charged upon arrival. Sailors can either;
1- Buy the visas online for every crew member that plans to go ashore. https://www.banjercito.com.mx/registroEmbarques
2-Pay the visa Fee in Ensenada. Mexican Immigration will have people and tables set up at Hotel Coral.
