Documenting Tourism Tax for Travel from the U.S. to Mexico
Delta and Aeromexico will continue to collect the Tourism Tax (UK Tax) for tickets on DL006 and AM139 ticket stock issued on/after July 1, 2021, for travel that originates from the United States to Mexico. As a reminder, this tax is part of the fare auto-price.
This Tourism Tax may be waived for citizens of Mexico. To waive the UK tax, Travel Agents will need to add the traveler’s Mexican-issued Passport Number in an OSI in the traveler’s PNR. A few examples are provided below:
Amadeus: OS AM MEXICAN PAX ID NUMBER XXX/P2
Sabre: OSI AM MEXICAN MEX ID NUMBER -1.2
Please note: OSI formats may differ per GDS. Please contact your GDS Help Desk if you have a question regarding OSI formats.
Travel Agencies may be held responsible and subject to a debit memo for the Tourism Tax amount and ADM charges in the event the tax is not included on the ticket or the OSI information is not included on the PNR, if waiving the tax for Mexican citizens.
If you have any questions or require more information, please contact Global Sales Support or Delta Reservations for assistance.
