After a great holiday in the Banderas Bay area, you want your departure from the Puerto Vallarta Gustavo Diaz Ordaz International Airport, or PVR, to be as relaxing as the rest of your vacation.
Thankfully, PVR offers first class services, amenities and staff to make saying hasta luego toPuerto Vallarta as painless as possible. Here are some additional tips to make your departure go smoothly.
Prior to landing in Puerto Vallarta, your flight crew would have distributed applications for your tourist visa, or FMM, which must be stamped as you pass through immigration at PVR as you first enter the country. Your immigration officer will have presented you with the second half of the tourist visa which you will need to retain and present when you exit the country. Should you misplace your tourist visa, you will be required to pay a fine at the airport when you are leaving the country, currently around $30 dollars. As long as you are able to present your tourist visa, there are no departure taxes levied on foreigners.
Should you have mislaid your passport, Americans and Canadians can both receive assistance with having a new passport issued at their consulates. The Canadian Consulate is located in Plaza Peninsula in the Hotel Zone of Puerto Vallarta. The American Consulate is located in Nuevo Vallarta in Paradise Plaza.
Things generally run very smoothly at PVR but it is still advisable to allow plenty of time to check in for your flight. Just prior to speaking to a ticket agent, you will need to present the luggage which you will be checking for a hand search by security, so be sure that there are no locks preventing agents from accessing your baggage.
If you have been shopping, you may be eligible for a sales tax rebate which can be applied for at PVR. Visit www.taxback.com.mx for further details.
