  4. Regularization (Amnesty) Program for people illegally in Mexico for 2017 On Tuesday, October 11, 2016 the amnesty program of 2015 will be brought back for the year 2017 and will apply from January 9, 2017 until December 19, 2017. The first publication about the program was made in the Daily Federal Register on January 12, 2015 and lasted until December 18, 2015. We saw how the National Immigration Institute applied the prior amnesty law so we now know their slight nuances as compared to the text of the law published. This program mentions nothing about paying fines nor having
  5. Owe back child support? You will not be able to leave Mexico!

Why are they here at my business?

  8. New Immigration Procedure Changes September, 2015 Many people living here in Mexico have children who were born here in Mexico or who have acquired Mexican nationality due to their spouse being Mexican. Foreigners with Mexican children have the opportunity to jump ahead from tourist status to residente permanente and not have to leave Mexico to do it under the family unity provisions of the immigration law. This is a great deal as they do not need to prove income or assets and they will have the right to work. Up until now immigration authorities were not requiring copy of the identification
