How many originals of each apostilled document to bring?

Recommended Posts

I wonder how many originals of each apostilled document I need to bring?  I am applying for permanent residency and my husband for temporary.  I believe we don't need them at the consulate but we will need them once we arrive in Mexico.  Or will photocopies of the original apostilled documents be sufficient? 

 

We will get an apostille of my husband's divorce decree, but I wonder how anyone would even know that he was married before, unless we tell them.  On this, I'm just curious. We will obtain and bring the recommended number of apostilles of the document.  Thanks!

While we have them, we did not need to show apostilles to either the MXN Consulate (Orlando FL) nor locally at INM.

Interesting!  I don't want to pay for too many apostilles, but don't want to be caught short either if any agency want to keep an original.

I had to show one one year for INM  and I needed one less than 3 month old for citizenship but that is about it.. You can always get another one from the States if you need one. Show the original and give a copy, I did that once as well..

I keep hearing how expensive it is to get them once you are in Mexico.

It would not be any more expensive if you have them mailed to a US address and then forwarded down here.  I ordered a few marriage license apostiles from Pennsylvania in 2012;  had them mailed to my TX box (HandyMail).  I never needed them for either the FM2 back in 2012, nor  for our RPs at the MXN consulate in FL, and completed here in Chapala earlier this year.
