Upon arrival during immigration processing you will receive a 30, 60, or 90 day tourist card, often in the form of a passport stamp, with 90 being the most common. This is similar to a “visa upon arrival” concept. I like to also keep a copy or two of my passport on my person. This can be helpful when renting a vehicle or providing a copy for your Airbnb host. Either way-good to have on hand.
