Mexico’s New Rules and Procedures for Immigrants and Visiting Tourists

New Rules and Procedures for Immigration, Visiting, and Staying in Mexico – Nov. 11, 2012

Nov. 10, 2012 Fresh Updates
The INM now answers questions over the fone:
Immigration Hotline
01-800-004-6264
24 hours / day and 7 days a week.
They answer quickly and a few speak English.

Special Thanks! to John Garvin for being persistent to ferret out and share this tasty update.

Why did John call them?
To find out that: “the time on a FM-3 does not count. Time on a FM-2 does count towards Permanent Resident.

This confirms what Cancun INM agents told us last week, but it contradicts reports about how 2 other regional INM offices have initially answered this key question.
Thanks John!
