Any Annual Reporting with Residente Permanente?

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone!

Recently received my Residente Permanente card (thank you Spencer!) and I'm wondering if any of you know if we will have to do some kind of annual reporting with INM? I know that we no longer have to re-apply for the card each year but heard mentioned that some kind of annual reporting may be required?

Can anyone confirm if this is true or otherwise? Thanks for your input.

Please do not suggest that! As it stands, you only have to report change of residence or marital status, or if you move to another country to live. The did not say that you had to inform them in the event that you die.

Or change of nationality. I'm looking at the letter re Judy's hot-off-the-press RESIDENTE PERMANENTE card. Yippee!

Thank you to all the wise and even funny (RVGRINGO) Sages of the web-board for clarifying this! What a relief!

I was told by San Miguel INM that each year a new photo must be submitted.

The person who told me this is INM employee who actually handed me my PR card. Perhaps it's different elsewhere.

Not so.

Even people who work for INM can give out incorrect information.

It says that you should have it with you and show it to any INM official who asks for it. We carry ours and keep a copy at home. Having your INM documentation with you has always been a requirement. It has not changed.

I'm glad you challenged this because I double checked and yes, there is reason behind the madness. You will probably hear of it later. "Also this year requirements are matt paper and white background, so yes, need new ones."

I wonder how they would communicate this to the tens of thousands of permit holders? I guess we will get notices in the mail. How else would they do it? Newspapers and TV ads?

INM agents are just as often wrong about the new laws and rules as those who believe the latest rumors.

Remember the level of education, if any, that you may encounter with any official. If in doubt, read the law yourself, then try to make sense of the rules. It is not easy and may never seem logical at all.

Probably by mail, but like so many other 'new' laws and procedures here in Mexico, it will likely take time to educate the various INM offices also. Perhaps the following year they'll choose to issue pink backgrounds for girls and blue for boys. <wink>

RVGRINGO, I am glad I do not have to inform them if I die--that would be difficult, but I would love to show up in ghost form at the INM office and point a skeletal finger and say, " I am reporting my death." Probably the only way to get their full attention;)

So, how much does it cost to get a replacement card if lost? Thanks.

Exactly same as a renewal... expensive!!. In SMA you have to meet with one of the senior staff and also submit a letter. The meeting is about an hour long and a translator is usually needed or a good knowledge of Spanish. At some INM offices you need to supply a darn police report.... geesh!!
