Do you have information for travelers entering into Mexico (entry requirements)?
When you first enter to the Mazatlan Airport you’ll need to go through the Mexican Immigration process. During your flight you will be given a visa form to complete (one per passenger), and a customs form (one per family). Complete these forms on the plane prior to your arrival. Immigrations will process your visa and stamp your Passport. They will return a stub from the visa form. DO NOT LOSE this stub; you will need it to exit Mexico.
After immigrations, you will immediately enter the baggage claim area. After collecting your luggage you will exit through a customs line where they will view your luggage through a scanner. After your luggage has been scanned, you will be requested to press a button and to surrender your customs declaration. If a green light appears, you are free to leave, if a red light appears, they will want to look inside your luggage. The red light is used about 20% of the time, and is nothing to be concerned about.
After you leave customs you enter and enclosed area of the airport that is used to try to sell TIMESHARE condominiums to the tourist. Be polite, but try to get past the sales pitch. You will then exit through the doors into to public part of the Airport.
