    Either does my husband...I only use in case my adult kids need to communicate with me. We actually took zero photos this year...not even of my outfits in room and they no longer have the Lobby set up with photo area.

    Sitting at Guy Fieri’s waiting on our flight out and feeling like a sucker. We paid for two of the Visitax stamps, got the QR code and printed them out. Went all the way thru check in and security and no one asked! No one looked. No one cared. Wasted $24 or whatever it was.
    We also filled out the “Attestation Form” for Delta but Mexico wants their own. They give you a small paper to fill out but way easier to scan the QR code and add people to one.

    I did our Cancun airport tax and have our receipt online. We are going in June, so if they do not need it that will be cool.
    I also did our Mexico entry form online so will see if that makes a difference in our processing. And of course, did our covid 19 affidavits forms online too.
    Just to prove I am not the smartest person on this site, (again) I also did our TTR early registration application online too. :D
    One week to go

    paid my new tax online also. No one asked for it.
    Oh well. Only $11 and Cancun has been hit pretty hard with the lack of tourists. Hope what is collected helps the area.

    And for the immigration form, I still think it helps speed up your processing when done in advance. At least it seems I get fewer questions about my visit. Just stamp my passport, tear off the exit portion and I'm on my way.

    Do we still need the covid 19 affidavits forms?
    The webpage is down, so I am not sure….

    Just got in to TTR , used the online version of the Mexico entry form, worked great, As they were passing out the forms on the plane, I showed the stewardess the printed-out form we had and she told me everything was great.
    Got to immigration, showed them our online Mexico entry form, the agent torn it in half, stamped it, and gave it back for our return trip (more on this later ) but the stewardess on the plane did not give us the Custom form, so once we collected our baggage and attempted to get thru customs, we had to go back and find the custom forms to fill out. (later) While that was going on, my lovey wife dropped my return stamped Mexico entry form and we did not notice it until we left the secured customs area. They refused to let us back in even when we had just walked out for less than a minute before, They told me there was nothing we could do. We begged, pointed at papers on the ground where we were in the customs area, but they refused to walk 6 yards to look for their selves.
    As far as the Covid 19 form, they took ours at immigration with our Mexico entry form, so you still might need it , not sure.
    Update: TTR front desk will not automatically sign you up for the covid 19 test at the resort. They told us we had to go to the covid 19 office (on the resort) and do that when they open at 9 am. They told us that it is still free.
    Now what to do about my lost Mexico entry form, I guess I will be using google to figure this out for on our return, I know it will cost $

    You can get another form and get it stamped at the airport...cost about $30 and there is usually a line. May be able to get one somewhere else too but there is a small room with two agents in the checkin area at the airport (or there used to be when we lost one a couple years ago)?
