Lic. Spencer McMullen, a well respected Mexican attorney who serves expat community needs (and regular Yucalandia contributor), has reported the following update on INM policies for foreigners residing in Mexico, with permission to work:
“Last month, June 2015, immigration circulated an internal update to their offices with changes to how they would treat renewals for people who have work permits. There was no change in the current immigration law or its regulations. This change was made at the whim of higher-ups in immigration.
This change will apply to people who did not originally enter Mexico with an offer of employment work visa and will only apply to those who entered with a regular temporary visa and who later changed to a visa with permission to work. People renewing work visas obtained which were changed from temporary visas will be required to submit bank statements to prove that they either have income from outside Mexico or savings that meet the published Residente Temporal guidelines (400 times minimum wage or 28.040 pesos for income or 20,000 minimum wage or 1,402,000 pesos in assets. ”
“… plan accordingly so you will not have problems when it is time to renew. ”
