FMM Tourist Permits for January
Often FMM tourist permits change at the beginning of the calendar year—either the form or the price. If you are crossing the border before January 1st, Discover Baja can still issue the prepaid FMMs. Discover Baja will not issue the prepaid FMMs for crossings in the first few days of January until we are aware of any new changes in the paperwork or cost. Call us at 800-727-2252 for details.
