Are there any embassies in South or Central America where a visiting foreigner (in particular, a Taiwanese national) could apply for a Mexican tourist visa?

The embassy in São Paulo for instance is unsuitable as they will only issue visas to residents of Brazil.

    You don't have an APEC Business card, nor any of those visas? – Michael Hampton Apr 7 at 4:01

    Did you actually talk to the embassy in São Paulo? They might have more flexibility than their published requirements indicate, especially if you have a good reason why you couldn't get it in Taiwan. Another approach would be to get a visa for a country whose visas are accepted for tourist entry to Mexico (ie, any Schengen country, UK, US, Canada, or Japan). – krubo Apr 7 at 20:20
  • @MichaelHampton We didn't know about APEC, thanks, but unfortunately don't have one of those nor are aware of any other such available options. – Dan Parsonson Apr 17 at 20:06

AFAIK, the answer is No.

According to https://www.mexicocity.com/v/visa-requirements/ proof of permanent residency in the country where the application is being made is required to apply for a tourist visa.

  • Thank you - not the answer I was hoping for but it appears to be definitive! – Dan Parsonson Apr 17 at 20:09
