A question to those of you who filled out and printed the immigration forms on-line:

Does one cut them apart or hand them the whole sheet?

Thanks so much!!

The Immigration person at the airport separated them.

I have always scored the center of the form so the agent can tear it neatly. I do not separate the halves.

When I used them in Zihuatanejo this October, I cut them completely and paper clipped together. Seemed to work better than having the officer tear them by hand as I did other times. Maybe someday the Mexican government will actually give these guys a paper cutter or some scissors but that would make sense. They also had no idea what to do with the online customs form. :beatwall:

on line form was helpful - just eliminated completing on plane. We did find that we also needed to complete the customs form - which I didn't find online - so still have to complete form while in line.

fyi on return through Houston used the mobile passport app - wow - it worked great - easy to use and very short line

The immigration personnel separated it (very messily, seem perterbed at having to do so.)

I'm thinking that separating it ahead of time would be appreciated.

**Customs Form: We filled them out on the plane, but didn't need them in LAX, we were directed to the Kiosk to complete and print the form.

The immigration folks in Mexico City did not accept my online forms. They just waived them off and made me fill out forms by hand.

Has there ever been a shortcut in any Mexican process?
Would Canada or USA accept a online immigration form?

Funny thing, sometime does not pay to do 2 things at once. I had printed the forms for me. While my forms were printing called Time Warner because my pass word for my modem did not work. TWC changed my pass word between my forms and Kathie's forms I can not print. I had to change the pass word in the printer even though it has a USB cable to the desk top. I hate the small screen on the printer trying to input the new pass word. Now my wifi for the lap top does not work. After a couple of phone calls later was told to right click on the network and select forget- I had never had this problem before. At least I have the 2 sets printed- waiting to see if any problems Jan 6th going through Immigration at "Z".

Yes, for the time spent fooling around with the PC and printer, we could have filled out three or four sets manually. Of course the printed forms look elegant, and the agents in Z had no problem with them.

Totally agree, the problem is if you do not get the form before leaving or they are not given out on the plane- as is happening sometimes. On one of our flights down the forms ran out(we were lucky we got them). Do you won't to fill them out at immigration's in "Z"- I don't.

We did the on-line form this time and it worked fine and I liked it. Since your information is on file, I would suggest that your printer be able to print a clear barcode because that’s what the scanner at immigration reads. The agent seemed pleased we had the form.

Is there an on-line customs form? We filled one out on the plane but Volaris gave us an outdated form and everyone on our flight had to fill out a new one. Chaos prevailed. But we got a green light at least.

Alas, Labrat, we never fly anything but steerage. Discount steerage.
