Customs at the airport

Customs MexicoUpon arrival at the International Puerto Vallarta Airport you'll first go through inmigration, then you'll pick up your luggage on the carrousels and then you'll go into the customs area where you will be asked to push a button that will randomly determine if your baggage will be checked or not.

If you get a green light you are free to continue to the exit gate through the so-called shark tank (timeshare people, read more), if you get a red light you will need to take your bags to the customs counter and have them checked.

Looking in to customs

This system is totally random and tends to show many more green lights than red lights.

Please check at the Mexican consulate in your city for necessary documents to come to Mexico, or even easier, visit the US Travel Gov site for more information.
