OLD Original post:
LATEST UPDATE: President Calderon just signed an all new Immigration Law yesterday. The new law pretty much overturns most of all the previous Mexican Immigration Regulations, Rules, and Procedures for people intending to stay in Mexico, but things look similar for temporary visitors like tourists and business visitors.
Please See: New Immigration Law Published for Mexico for more details.
(Soon to be out of date ) Abstract of Current Policies:
FMM, FM2, FM3, or Inmigrado?
What’s the best immigrant status for you?
How does Mexican Immigration work?
If you’re reading this, you’ve either chosen-to or are thinking-about moving to Mexico, and changing from 180 day FMMs (“tourist” or “business” visas) by applying for residency (FM2 or FM3 status).
Good for you!
Why? Mexico can be a great place to live, and now is an especially good time to make the change with the latest rule changes, plus, the staff at our local Merida INM office are very helpful, friendly, and easy to deal with.
Read the full article to learn about the differences how between FMMs, FM2s, FM3s, & Inmigrado status; how to apply for an FM2 or FM3; and also learn the benefits and requirements of immigrating to Mexico.
