” CURP Certificada”
There’s a new document (shown below) for pretty much everyone in Mexico, (except tourists). This new CURP is also for foreigners who have interactions & activities with our Mexican govt, including INM. This new Certified CURP document is designed to clean up any “corrupted” personal data in Mex. Gob records, and hence is now being required** for many activities we have with the Mexican govt., including the INM, Registro Civil offices, and SAT-Hacienda tax activities.
Why a new “CURP Certificate”?
The old CURP numbers & records have been plagued with a combination of errors in the personal data, and too many individuals having 2 or more CURP numbers assigned to them. As a result, our National Population Registry (RENAPO) is unifying all of the personal data they have on each of us under a single Certified CURP.
How do you get your Certified CURP?
1. Go to gob.mx/curp
2. Select the option “CURP”
or fill in your personal data.
3. Click on the “search” button.
Your CURP data will appear on the screen.
4. On this screen, click the option to “Print Official Document”
This automatically issues your new Certified CURP – aka CURP Certificate, including your new QR code …
What if you choose to not get your Certified CURP?
**The normal CURPs will continue to be an accepted official document, but choosing to not get a Certified CURP document, means that many government processes will take you longer, because our government’s new internal procedures require a Certified CURP – meaning delays while they pull up & generate one, that’s good for just that one action.
