I am finding myself confused once again since I see another forum that is bringing up birth certificates having them aposilled translated into Spanish. For the temporary residency do I need any of this. I did all of that for Ecuador and it was done in Spanish at that time by a lawyer. If I did have to do this can I use those that are already done. Do I need a criminal records check that was done a year ago also. Is that for citizenship or something different. I want to make sure that I am aware of everything before I go to Mexican consulate in Ecuador. Is there any one on this forum that has come from Ecuador.

Annabell,

Contact the Mexican Embassy in Quito at: embajadamexecuador@sre.gob.mx

They set the requirements, especially for police reports/criminal records checks. Many many Mexican Consulates do NOT require this for Residente Temporal applications. A few do.

Ignore what you read on forums, and follow the Mexican Embassy in Ecuador's instructions:
"Please contact the embassy in Quito directly for inquiries and questions regarding visa regulations and passport requirements."

I contacted the Mexican embassy in Quito and they said to me for temporary visa I had to have $2500. in income or $100,000 in savings or investment. That is not what I wanted to hear. It seems strange that they are not up to date on it. I sent them an email back saying that was the old amount and now it was $1500.00 and $25,000 In investment or savings. Also asked about birth certificate and the cost at their end when I see them. I want to be prepared.

The problem of SRE offices like Embassies and Consulates not knowing INM rules (a different govt. agency) is surprisingly common, in Canada and the USA too.

The same thing happens with the US State Department and her Consulates & Embassies, where US State Dept. employees and US Ambassadors generally do not know CIS (INS) rules or Homeland Security rules, and US State Dept. employees/Ambassadors also do not know US CBP rules.

This all goes to show that around the world, it's best for us to find the correct govt. agency and learn the rules for ourselves, and not trust the mistaken advice of other related government agency clerks.

Hi everyone,

Here is my question...I read somewhere that if you owned a property ( house ) it could be use as financial asset when applying for Permanent Resident, True or False ?

If it is true...how much would have to be the property value ?

Many thanks!

False, only taken into account for temporary resident and even then they are hesitant to apply it in many cases

If applying for pre-approval at a MX consulate, home ownership in Mexico has carried considerable weight with my clients. To go from a TR to PR in less than 4 years when financials are required at the local INM here in SMA, home ownership has no weight as they only consider pension sourced income.

He didn´t mention a house in Mexico so I assume he meant a house in his home country.

Has Immigration changed the ruling about amounts necessary to change over from Temporal to Permanente to equal what the consulates are requiring?
If not, I wonder if people are going out of the country and starting over.

If your Residante Temporal visa will complete four years, you may convert to Permanente without proofs, assuming that you were on FM2 status prior to Temporal and have no breaks in your visas. We did that.

Check with Spencer for details.

I came in directly as Temporal, hubby as Permanente.

This fall will only be my 2nd renewal and I'm borderline on the financial requirements.

I will have to call Spencer to see how we can arrange for me to get my Permanente and stop this renewals bit.

If your husband has Residente Permanente status, I think that you can apply for equal status under vincula familiar rules. Spencer will know for sure.

Your other option is to renew for the entire remaining time on the temporal visa and let nature take its course until it is time for permanente.

2 years as economic dependent of permanente will get you permanente no financials.
