The visitax mx is a new mandatory tourist tax that was introduced in April of 2021 and applies to all visitors to Cancun, Tulum, Riviera Maya, Cozumel, Isla Mujeres, and Bacalar. It is commonly known as a ‘visitor tax’ or ‘tourism tax’, and it came into effect to help the state of Quintana Roo improve its tourism infrastructure and enhance the visitor experience.
You can pay for the VISITAX online before your trip, which will eliminate the hassle of waiting in long lines at the airport. The process is quick and simple, and your payment will be confirmed within minutes. You’ll then be able to present your online confirmation to authorities when you arrive in Mexico.

On the Pink Couch, Tim Scurry, CEO of Torkore Group of Companies, explains how Travelkore was selected by the state contractor to manage the automated collection of VISITAX for travelers visiting Cancun and other Mexican destinations. The service will reduce the amount of time travelers spend in line at the airport and will also allow for a more streamlined and efficient processing of the tax by local businesses and attractions.
The VISITAX fee is 224 Mexican pesos (around $10 USD) per person, and it must be paid by all international tourists. Those who wish to save time can make the payment online before they arrive in the Yucatan, which will give them a QR code that they can show to local authorities as proof of having paid the fee.
