Ever willing to reveal my ignorance, I’ll bite: What is CURP? (And why should I type my details into those fields?)
CURP is the Mexican sort-of-equivalent of a US Social Security number. It is a general purpose ID number issued by the Mex. Gob: needed for IMSS registration, or for retirement plans, or for little kids to attend school, etc.
Check your INM visa. Some have them printed on the residente card, others do not. The state Registro Civil offices issue them for Mexicans, while gringos get theirs from INM (for the past 4 years).
Why would you need/want one? If you go to get an RFC (to earn money here in Mexico, pay taxes or start a business), you have to give SAT/Hacienda your CURP (plus other docs).
hello, my name is kristen. i have been online looking for 2 friends of mine, emily and ryan (newie). they should be in the merida/yucatan area looking for me too. if you’ve heard of anything at all or know of someone who meets a lot of people passing through, please drop me a line and let me know…
anything at all would help.
thanks so much for your time,
Maybe try checking the Posadas in Centro. (Hostels) Might find them or at least pass the word around. Buen suerte!
