  1. I think people are getting very confused by what is required for the July 1 law. Mexico News Daily helped with the confusion, by mixing the process for obtaining an RFC with that for the new Constancia de Situación Fiscal. They are two separate documents and needed if you plan to receive a payment by factura or payroll (think Mexico medical insurance reimbursements, new CFE meters, new phones, etc.) "Finalmente, se les recuerda que la obligación de la emisión de facturas electrónicas o recibos de nómina en el sistema la Factura Electrónica 4.0, para lo cual los contribuyentes pueden requerir su Constancia de Situación Fiscal, iniciará a partir del 1 de julio de 2022." July 1 is not the date by which all adults 18+ (temporary or permanent foreign residents and all Mexican citizens) must have their RFC--we each already should have an RFC in order to receive a legal factura or payslip; if you don't have an RFC, you slipped through the system. The July 1 date is to get the newer Constancia de situación fiscal--think of it as a certificate of proof (from SAT) that one's CURP and RFC are correctly registered to the person named. If you for some reason do not yet have a valid RFC, you need to get that document first by applying online, making an appointment, then going to Guadalajara to finish the process. (Eons ago, many of us got our RFCs online, after getting our CURP at the Ajijic Delegación. No longer.) The new Constancia de Situación Fiscal process can be done online on a laptop, but if you are not computer-comfortable, have difficulty reading on screen, or fear speaking a fairly long (printed) line in Spanish into the microphone to be recorded on the application site, you may need help. You need your name, address, including Colonia and cross streets (like Mercado Libre asks for), landline and cell numbers, emails (plural), your CURP number, your RFC number, a .pdf or .jpeg of the front and back of your immigration document (temporal/permanente for expats, INE for Mexicans)--that's the bulk of it. Here's the process. At https://satid.sat.gob.mx/ you create a personal registration with a username and password (with multiple email verifications to said emails before you continue), then add home and cell numbers and, at minimum, one email address (they ask for backups.) If you are not computer-literate, you will need help to take your photo and, along with your legal immigration doc (front and back), upload it to the site. You then have to read a silly—but long—sentence for voice recognition purposes. I think THIS part may be a problem for many, whether native or non-native speakers. Plus the text is blurred--mine was blocked by white surprinting a well-- so seeing it is a bit dicey. You'll go through some more hoops then get another email (actually, I think I received text messages) that your info has been successfully uploaded. You wait, get a confirmation in a few days, then print the document for your safekeeping. I hope this helps you understand what is required, and how to apply for the new Constancia by the 1 July 22 deadline.
  2. Our experience(s) in Jocotepec: If you have an appointment, you will check in and be taken (más o menos) at your appointment time. There is a separate line for people without appointments; they are attended to as space becomes available.
  3. Por nada, Natasha. Customary documents and copies, of course.
  4. I just phoned them to confirm and the Centro de Salud in Seis Esquinas is giving AZ today, thru Fri, from 9-2. Run, Forrest, run!
  5. In addition, you also have to wait for (and present) the emailed payment confirmation to your appointment. I had to help a couple from Ajijic who paid and had their bank receipt, but not the email confirmation of the transaction. They were sent away to await the payment email before returning. (They were given a card with a phone number to reschedule in Ocotlán.)
  6. Went to Manzanillo; three tolls.
  7. Here's instructions on how to get your CIF online: https://www.elfinanciero.com.mx/mis-finanzas/2022/02/07/como-sacar-la-cedula-de-identificacion-fiscal-desde-casa/
  8. I am aware of this...questioning the source of Tom Gates' post, above, stating that the testing stops March 16--next Weds. I can find no verification for his comment.
  9. Mostlylost, Thanks for the source but I see nothing that says regs change on March 16 regarding requirements for a negative Covid test one day prior to departure, as TomGates indicated, above. That's what I'm looking for: some confirmation of an upcoming regulatory change to the current testing requirement.
  10. Could you please point me to a source for this? The last CDC update I received regarding testing was at the end of January, and I'm on their notifications (10 of them.) Please let me know what I missed.
  11. They are terrific and...bonus... took my best photo EVER...seriously. A great photo, and I hate photos of myself. I highly recommend. Located across the street, between Manix Restaurant and the Total Body Spa.
  12. Interesting, and thank you to all who posted. I traveled yesterday and my three tolls totalled $335. As points of comparison, the app.sct.gob.mx site calculates my tolls to be $301; the tollsmart.com indicates $324. So, both trackers are slightly off...they may not have updated for the increases we were charged at some toll locations on Jan 1, 2022.
  13. It's like in the US where you go to a third-party shipping location and send mail or packages/returns by (your choice of) USPS, FedEX, DHL etc. Or DIF here: their primary responsibility is the welfare of children and adolescents but they also provide INAPAM cards for local seniors, if available. The SUPER-ISSSTE locations here are authorized to receive and distribute specific items, INAPAM being one of them. After years of trying to get spouse's INAPAM and no cards Lakeside or appts in any of the Guadalajara locations, this option, which sends your application to Mexico City, I believe, had no issue at all.
  14. After more than 2 years, only in part due to Covid, spouse finally got INAPAM card here, in Tlaquepaque. It's kind of a grocery + authorized third-party vendor for several government docs, including the INAPAM card. Same requirements, including photo. The main difference is that you go back in a month+ to pick up your card--it is not processed there as they aren't a direct INAPAM location. But it worked! Super Issste Tienda 114 Address: Blvd. Gral. Marcelino García Barragán 1261, Unidad Modelo, 44420 Guadalajara, Jal. (THIS IS IN TLAQUEPAQUE) Hours: Open ⋅ Closes 8PM Phone: 33 3619 9945
  15. Here is your answer, via a few links on the CDC webpages; the requirement for full vaccination against Covid for non-US citizens went into effect yesterday, Saturday January 22, 2022, and consists of the same vaccines, forms of proof, and timelines as have been required for air travelers for several weeks. (A full vaccine series is required: one dose of a one-dose; and both doses of a two-dose vaccine.) https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/proof-of-vaccination.html#covid-vaccines Top of Page Accepted COVID-19 Vaccines Accepted COVID-19 Vaccines Vaccines Approved or Authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Vaccines Listed for Emergency Use (EUL) by the World Health Organization Single dose Janssen/J&J Janssen/J&J 2-dose series Pfizer-BioNTech Moderna Pfizer-BioNTech Moderna AstraZeneca Covaxin Covishield BIBP/Sinopharm Sinovac Novavax/Covovax Top of Page Acceptable Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination Acceptable Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination Documentation Type Examples Verifiable records (digital or paper) Vaccination certificate with QR code1, digital pass via Smartphone application with QR code1 (e.g., United Kingdom National Health Service COVID Pass, European Union Digital COVID Certificate) Non-verifiable paper records Printout of COVID-19 vaccination record or a COVID-19 vaccination certificate issued at national or subnational level or by an authorized vaccine provider (e.g., the CDC vaccination card) Non-verifiable digital records Digital photos of vaccination card or record, downloaded vaccine record or vaccination certificate from official source (e.g., public health agency, government agency, or other authorized vaccine provider), or a mobile phone application without QR code1 1. The QR code in a verifiable vaccination record links to information confirming the credential was generated from an immunization record in an official database and is protected from tampering.

  16. Here are the websites to make an appointment for the test for AUTOMOVILISTA NUEVA and get your docs. You need to make payment beforehand, and can do it at a bank…there’s a clave number that is printed on the wall of the motor vehicle place, along with the requirement and fee. You can also complete this form, which will generate the payment form you print and take to the bank. Adults 60+ with CURP and INAPAM get 50% discount. It is 50% discount of $792 (I believe 2022 is the same cost as 2021.) https://gobiernoenlinea1.jalisco.gob.mx/multiTramites/licencias Here is where you print your CURP (if you don’t have the newer 8 1/2 x 11 full-page format, which went into effect in Jan of 2020.) https://www.gob.mx/curp/ This is the website with the requirements; take original and photocopy of each of these: CURP, proof of address, payment receipt, blood type, official photo ID, permanente/temporal/INE. https://tramites.jalisco.gob.mx/tramite/8778 Once you fill out the page from the citas link below, it should open to the calendar so you can select your appointment date and time. The location is the small street just north of the Chapala yacht club, east of the malecón and where the Feria Maestros de Arte was held for several years. Go to that door, look to your left and there is a small street. The motor vehicles place is about 100 feet northwest; there is parking to the right. https://cias.jalisco.gob.mx/transporte/client/newAppointment?eiid=103&lid=13
  17. Ferret, we have started to do preventive maintenance with Solar Technology...I think they recommend every six months but Ron Magen of STI could advise you. They check connections and a variety of other things that could affect your output...beyond our monthly cleaning of the panels we do ourselves. Well, the royal"we," as in our handyman climbs the roof and I do the prodding.
  18. We also use Mr. Dieguez; in case you are interested, they also come and steam clean floors. Despite being washed at least twice a week, it was amazing to see what came off the floors with the power of the machine.
  19. Alan, according to Jalisco health, your speculation is incorrect: "Also it seems that the only docs approved are those from the government website which have the QR codes and not the ones filled out by the vaccine administrators." The original documents provided at the time of your injections are indeed valid proof. (See the middle image, below, from the state) plus the governor posted yesterday on his FB page that the paper copies are sufficient proof: Enrique Alfaro Ramírez Favorites · 15h · A partir de mañana, viernes 14 de enero, entran en vigor las nuevas medidas para cuidar tu vida y defender Jalisco de la alza de contagios por la variante del #COVID19, ómicron. No vamos a parar nuestra economía y esa es una gran noticia, pero no podemos bajar la guardia. De inicio, para entrar a espacios de recreación hay que presentar tu certificado o papeleta de vacunación, de aquí o de otro país. Si no te quieres vacunar, tienes la libertad, pero no el derecho sobre los demás, hay que tener tu PCR negativa con 48 horas de vigencia. Ya sabemos que sin salud no hay nada, sigamos haciéndolo bien. Lo más importante para enfrentar la pandemia es la conciencia. Te dejo toda la información en este enlace, entra, infórmate y pasa la voz: gobjal.mx/PlanCOVID2022.
  20. Every official source I can find says the original documents are valid. That might work, no? (I've been waiting since July to get my federal certificates amended--both are incorrect; after 5 requests and checking today, still nada...) ¡Suerte!
  21. Curmudgeon, I just checked my original, handwritten vaccination receipts and both have my date of birth on them.
  22. Here are the parameters, maximum permissible limits. The source, below, also quotes the applicable laws. The verificación responsable site recommends that you take your vehicle for standard maintenance, including optimal tire pressure etc, prior to going for your inspection. I went a few months ago (Guadalajara) and the newly-constructed stations are spotless and the process (and bathrooms) impressive. There's a nice waiting area but, due to Covid protocols, only one person per vehicle is supposed to enter at a time, although nobody stopped us as we had scheduled an early am appt. We arrived about an hour early, and they willingly took us ahead of our appointment time. https://verificacionresponsable.jalisco.gob.mx/que-es-verificacion/ Here, at the bottom, you can find two tables that detail which 14 items are inspected visually (left table) and the emissions items checked (right table). I itemized the latter, below and, from the second source (autocosmos.com) listed the maximum permissible limits. https://noticias.autocosmos.com.mx/2021/08/04/ahora-todos-los-autos-en-jalisco-verifican-esto-es-todo-lo-que-debes-de-saber Año - modelo vehicular 1990 y anteriores 1991 y posteriores Hidrocarburos (HC hppm) Máx. 350 100 Monóxido de Carbono (CO % vol.)

  23. Vaccines arrived in Chapala around 8:30 am today, Jan 10. If you need your shot, today's your day and the lines were quite short at that time.
  24. And the tolls have increased at most of the booths: this weekend, it was just over $1500 mx each way, Ajijic to Laredo/Solidaridad Colombia.
  25. Smog checks are once yearly for private vehicles, twice annually for intensive-use commercial vehicles, which include taxis, Ubers, trucks and those types. https://noticias.autocosmos.com.mx/2021/08/04/ahora-todos-los-autos-en-jalisco-verifican-esto-es-todo-lo-que-debes-de-saber
