I will be taking a flight from Guadalajara to Tijuana and crossing the border to the USA on the foot bridge at the airport. Has anyone done this before? Where and when do I complete my immigration form before entering the USA and again when returning to Mexico to catch my flight home? I would like to have this information before I go, rather than having to try find out when I get there.
I am going to write the Post that I wish I had found BEFORE my 3 trips to INM AFTER arriving back from the Consulate with my ''Permanente Visa Pre-Approval'.. After waiting almost 90 minutes on my first visit, I was advised that I needed to visit the bank & pay 4,828 pesos, using the form below to direct payment to the correct account... Upon returning with the receipt in hand, I waited another 45 minutes to learn that additional requirements must be met and the attached form would guide me in their preparation. Today, after waiting for ~60 minutes, I successfully completed Part 2 of the process after submitting the listed documents & copies (no photos required yet). I have received an email confirmation & exchanged my FMM - CANJE for a letter saying my application is being processed. Next, I was told to expect a 2 week wait, before needing to return to INM with photos for fingerprints... I'm getting excited...

I have just returned from Atlanta where I visited the Mexican Consulate to initiate my request for permanente status. The experience could not have been better. Although the consulate was very busy I was sitting in front of the consulate official within ten minutes. She was extremely helpful, very nice and explained every step thoroughly. Within 30 minutes that detail was complete. I went out to lunch and the visa was ready when I returned. The Atlanta consulate has all requirements in English on their web site. http://consulmex.sre.gob.mx/atlanta/index.php/component/content/article/11-visas/302-visas-to-travel-to-mexico If anyone has questions I'd be happy to help. I have questions for anyone else that has received a permanente: I understand the Chapala office has moved. Can someone tell me where it is located? Is the local process complex? Can I/Should I hire someone to stand in for me with the local process?
