It appears the log-jam of printing and laminating Residency Cards in DF has been broken with the re-opening of INM offices after the holiday break:
Many people from different INM offices across Mexico are now reporting that they are now receiving their Permanent Residency cards. One consistent and dominant theme is that NONE of them had to submit financial documents when applying. Some of these successful individuals had No Inmigrante Rentista permits (retired FM3 person), others were transferring from “working FM3s”, and others had Inmigrante (FM2s). One individual simply had to sign a letter saying that he continued to have the same financial situation and same income as in the past. Even INM offices like Mazatlan’s that initially required proofs of solvency, have now dropped the requirements. Sweeeeet.
Hopefully this allays the fears of many people who do not meet the letter of the law regarding the individual financial requirements aka Personal Fiscal Solvency requirements to get Residency. ( see Proof of Financial Independence for Residency Applicants ) We have also read a substantial number of consistent personal reports from across Mexico that say that the individual regional offices are using a combination of financial deposits, small pension income, small SSI income, and property ownership to prove Personal Fiscal Solvency. The INM offices have the discretion to use an aggregate of the applicant’s income and pensions and property assets, when no single value of these three meet the specific INM requirements.
