  3. New Visa classifications

    Message body Surprised there has been no conversation here about the new Visa classifications that expect to be implemented in the next few months. Lots of conversation and speculation on other boards. Also the auto permit changes (you pay the fee upfront) ---------------- Instead of the old ¡°Inmigrante¡± & ¡°No Inmigrante¡± (FM¡¯2 & FM3¡äs), there are 4 new categories: ¡°Visitante¡°: 6 Types: Non-Working Visitors (tourist), Working Visitors, and Visitors for Adoptions, Humanitarian, etc. 180 day limit. See Chapter 2, Article 52, Items I ¨C VI of the Law for descriptions of all 6 types. ¡°Residente Temporal¡°: Covers the old ¡°No Inmigrante¡± (old FM3) , 4 year limit per visa, Work Permit possible, Leave and Re-enter as many times as desired. This also seems to include the old ¡°Inmigrante¡± FM2 ¡°Rentistas¡± *** See Chapter 2, Article 52, Item VII ¡°Residente Temporal Estudiante¡°: Covers Student Studies, Research, Training, including working on university degrees. See Chapter 2, Article 52, Item VIII ¡°Residente Permanente¡°: Several types: Covers the old ¡°Inmigrado¡± and a few special ¡°No Inmigrantes¡± (the old FM3s for asylum seekers & refugees ), and it appears to cover working ¡°Inmigrantes¡±**. It allows indefinite stays, no need to renew, and includes the right to work. See Chapter 2, Article 52, Item IX and Transitorios, Sexto, I ¨C VI http://yucalandia.wordpress.com/living-in-yucatan-mexico/new-immigration-law-published-for-mexico-the-article/ sparks http://sparks-mexico.com/

  5. FVAP 1-800-438-VOTE vote@fvap.gov 1777 North Kent Street Suite #14003 Arlington, VA 22209 Press Release The United States Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP) has just released a survey mandated by Congress and approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The purpose of the survey is to gather opinions on the Absentee Voting experience of overseas US Citizens. December 07, 2010 (Washington, DC): Are you a U.S. citizen living overseas who is eligible to vote in the federal election process? If so, we need your help! Voting is the right of U.S. citizens everywhere — including those who live outside the country. However, we recognize the challenges faced by citizens abroad who want to exercise this right. With the support of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), the Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP) would like to know about these challenges so we can take the necessary steps to make voting easier for all U.S. citizens. Before we can improve the process though, we need to know about your voting experiences. With the recent 2010 Federal election behind us, there isn't a better time to ask about these experiences. FVAP, the DoD organization responsible for overseas and absentee voting assistance for U.S. citizens, has released a survey to help you provide this information. The data collected from this survey is mandated by Congress and will be reviewed to help us identify what is working and what we can improve. To access the survey, please click on the link below and you will be taken to a Welcome screen that provides information about the survey. http://www.drcsurveys.com/PEV2/News/ Again, the survey has been sponsored by FVAP in accordance with DoD Instruction 8910.01, and has been approved by OMB. Please visit the FVAP Website at http://www.fvap.gov for more information or to verify the validity of the survey. The survey does not require you to provide any personally identifiable information, such as your name, date of birth, or social security number, and all results will be kept confidential and not shared with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and any other government and/or private organization. Thank you for taking our survey and helping us make the election process for those U.S. citizens living abroad more effective. We look forward to seeing the results, sharing them with you, and working to improve your overseas voting experience.
