VISITAX comes into force to facilitate the payment of tourist usage fee
• The new payment will take effect on April 1, 2021
• Tourists can pay before or during their stay in Quintana Roo
Cancun, Quintana Roo. March 19, 2021 – As a result of the State Congress’ decision to create a
new payment for foreign tourists who leave the state as of April 1, 2021, the Secretary of Finance
and Planning of the state government through the Quintana Roo Tax Administration System (SATQ)
presented the VISITAX system to facilitate its payment.
The usage fee consists of payment by foreign tourists of approximately $10, depending on
the exchange rate. Tourists can pay prior to their arrival, when entering, or during their stay since
the payment verification will happen once tourists leave the state.
The following information is requested to fill out the VISITAX form:
• Number of people traveling
• Name, age, and passport number – individually
• Departure date
• Data to make the payment electronically
When tourists have concluded their stay in Quintana Roo, they must show their receipt at the
airport filter prior to boarding. In case of not having it, they will get assistance to do it at that
Payment for families or groups can be made in a single exhibition, as long as the data required
by the system for each individual is completed and thus, individualized receipts will be provided.
Visitors crossing the border with Belize by land will get a 100% subsidy.
Kiosks will also be available at the Cancun and Cozumel airports to collect payment and provide a QR code, and assistance will be available. However, lines may get long so please try to complete the transaction in advance.
TRAVEL TIP – After you complete the payment for your usage tax you will get an email with your receipt. See below. The top 1/2 is in Spanish. The English version is at the bottom. Please note that even under the English version of your receipt the charge shows in Pesos, not dollars.
