Will Mexico allow airline passengers to enter the country on a one way ticket or is a round trip required for proof of future exit?
Thanks RV, however the American Airlines agent said that she was not sure and had no way of confirming. She then referred me to the nearest Mexican embassy which of course has a plethora of automated recordings making it impossible to get to a live person.I believe they will and I know that your airline could confirm that for you.
there can be a problem in Mexico with a one way ticket if you would need to extend your fmt visa. Some immigrations offices will ask for your return ticket prior to authorizing extended time in Mexico. This has happened in cancun and play del carmen.In practice, Mexican immigration does not care, and doesn’t require a return ticket, but some airlines will not acknowledge this and these airlines will not let you go with a one-way ticket. If the airline agent you asked could not tell you, then it might be up to the agent at the gate at the time of boarding to let you go or forbid you.
The maximum time on an FMT is 180 days and it cannot be extended beyond that time. So, be sure to ask for 180 days when you arrive. If you plan to apply for an FM3, you must do that before 150 days have passed on your FM3.
