  1. 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...
  2. Wallet stolen in Walmart today, Wed. Aug.2nd. Several hundred dollars charged to Visa and Amex. Bank cards all reported and frozen. Does anyone know what info one has to supply to Immigration to replace my Residente Permanente card? Hopefully it is not as onerous as the initial application!
  3. My cards were stolen yesterday with some money, by a worker painting my casa, he is nowhere to be found, I need someone to help me replace permanente card...
  4. Hi. I had an hour session with an immigration consultant yesterday about options for applying for permanente status. I am ready to move forward with the process but had heard nothing but negative things about working with the local Mexican consul in the Seattle area where my legal domicile is established. She said that I can apply at any consul in the U.S. and that some have much better reputations for offering (and honoring) scheduled appointments as well as making the process a fairly quick turnaround. If I understand correctly, the usual process is an initial interview and doc presentation, followed by a return visit to pick up the visa several days later. Does anyone have a specific recommendation on a U.S. office they used? Of course, I understand that there has to be a visit within 30 days here in Mexico, but I'm fine with that part. Thanks for your information.
  5. A client just informed me that he was turned away at the Laredo, Texas Mexican consulate because he didnt have an appointment and that they said the visa process now takes 3 days. This seems to be a drastic change from before. Has anybody else experienced this?
  6. Can anyone provide clarification of what amount of deposit is required to show proof of when going Permanente? I am assuming they want 12 months of statements still but unclear also as to whether the deposit amount has to remain untouched during the 12 month period? Specifically, I renew late April to go Permanente, and will have my 12 months bank statements meeting just over the minimum amount required, but need to purchase a vehicle with Mex. plates so would like to use 60,000p from my account for this which would be about 30 days prior to INM renewal so would likely show in the last months statement that I withdrew that amount which might put me under the minimum balance. Is this going to cause a problem with INM? Thanks for all advice.
  7. Is there a penalty, fine or negative consequences if someone leaves Mexico on foot crossing in Tijuana without having turned in the lower portion of the FMM form to immigration for lack of finding Mexican immigration while exiting and then returns by plane from US to Guadalajara? Has this happened to anyone? What could one expect from immigration re-entering at airport as a residente permanente in this scenario? Could this jeopardize status as Residente Permanente? Any thoughts on this Spencer? Thanks.
