  1. Thanks Dan. Car travel for entering and exiting Mexico does not require FMM. In fact, when I cross the border weekly by car, I'm never stopped or asked. But I will pick up and complete the bottom portion of a new form in the PV airport.
  2. I just landed in Puerta Vallarta, got in line for Mexicans and had my completed FMM form. Immigration took whole form from me and said I don’t need bottom half because I’m a temporary resident, not visitor. I was surprised by this but he insisted. So now I have no portion of the form for my return back to the US. Will I need to complete a FMM form for flight back to states? If so, do I just complete the bottom half of a brand new form I get from the airport? I’m not planning any return flights to Mexico (since I drive between San Diego to Rosarito) so I hope my indefinite “absence” from Mexico won’t be a problem. Any counsel appreciated. Many thanks.
  3. Thank you mudgirl. Do I list Mexico as my country of residence in the top part of the FMM form?
  4. I have a mexico temporary residency card, and I live part-time in California and part time in Mexico. I am flying to Puerta Vallarta from San Diego, and am a bit confused about the process of entering and exiting Mexico in a way that I don't lose my residency status. I know I am not supposed to be processed as a tourist, as that will override my resident status. Can someone confirm that my understanding is correct about what I will do? My understanding is then when I'm in flight to Mexico, I will be given the FMM form. (I do not have an existing FMM form from previous travel to/from Mexico as I drive by car normally) I should complete the top portion of the FMM form making sure I select "other" as purpose of trip, and include the number on my resident card in the portion on the top that says "No. de Tarjeta".I believe I write Mexico as my country of residence. Then, when I land, I should go in the line for Mexico citizens/residents. I need to make sure the immigration officer selects the "Tarjeta Residente" box in the USO Oficial part. Then, when I depart from the Puerta Vallarta airport to go back to San Diego, I give the immigration officer the bottom part of the FMM form and make sure "other" is checked for purpose of trip and again make sure the immigration officer selects the "Tarjeta Residente" box. Is this correct? Many thanks.
  5. Hello mostly lost, I never exited Mexico by plane so I don’t have an Fmm form to provide when I land in Puerta Vallarta. I always travel by car between San Diego and Rosarito so I don’t need a fmm for that. Given this, do I proceed with the same steps I outlined in my post? And should I list Mexico as my country of residence on top part of form? Thanks!
