Dear interpreter colleagues,

I hope you are doing well. I'm writing to you because I was offered to be a Spanish-English interpreter in a conference in Cancun,Mexico. My client is a translation company based in Asia.

They are asking me to do an estimate of my trip expenses to bill the client there including visa and airport tax fees.

I'm trying to find out if Mexican Airports request foreign visitors to pay airport tax when they visit their country. I don't need a visa to travel and to work in Mexico during those days.

I'm a U.S. Citizen but I'm asking myself If I will need to pay this airport tax when I will visit Mexico. I may travel around the month of May. Feel free to contact me and feel free to write to me in Spanish if you are a native Spanish speaker.
Greatly appreciated.
Yugoslavia

No Mar 11

No, as far as I am aware there is no such thing (unlike in other Central American countries, such as Honduras and Costa Rica).
I have flown into and out of Mexico several times before as a visitor, and know others who have, and I've never heard of an airport tax here.

Thanks Mr. Parker. Mar 11

Hi Mr. Parker, I hope you are doing well. Thank you so much for letting me know.

I appreciate it. They also told me that I don't need a work visa if I'm coming to work as an interpreter during that conference for only 4 days. The Mexican Consulate told me that the reason why I don't need to apply for a work visa is because I will be working for a foreign company those days. Thanks again for your help. Yugoslavia
