Visa Procedures for Journalists

Should you be attending the XVII International AIDS Conference, please read the information provided here (last updated June 16) carefully. All journalists, regardless of country of origin, must receive a visa to enter Mexico to report on the conference.

A priority procedure has been developed for all conference media representatives, which will ensure the granting of the FM-3 in a very short period of time. All embassies and consulates have already been informed of this.

Please note the following important information:

  • The visa for media representatives does not have a cost. However the visa must be accompanied by a FREE migratory document called FM3 (which allows you to work in Mexico as a media correspondent).
  • All Media representatives DO NEED an FM3 to cover the conference.
You can obtain an FM3 from any Mexican embassy or consulate. To obtain form FM3, you must submit:
  • Valid passport or valid Travel Document
  • Completed Visa Application Form.
  • Official letter of the media company, stating the puropose of the trip
  • Letter of invitation to the conference
  • Two photographs (4X4 cm), front view (2.5 cm from chin to hairline), white background, with forehead and ears uncovered, and without earrings or eyeglasses. Instant photographs are not acceptable.
