We got tourists visa at the airport. I asked for 180 day visas. My question is on getting the 180 day extension. I've heard from people there is a way of getting the extension without leaving Mexico, but can't seem to find information online. Anyone got any links or suggestions of someone to contact to solve this problem?

"I've heard from people". Hmmm. Those people are obviously ill-informed. The tourist visa is max 180 days. There is no process for extensions. There is no "problem", just the immigration laws and policies, which are expected to be respected. You have to leave the country by the time your visa runs out and re-enter.

Since you have now heard from “people” who say you can extend a 180-day visa without leaving the country and from other “people” who say you can not perhaps it is time to ask an immigration attorney.

There were lawyers who said that they could Import a US vehicle at the Guadalajara airport instead of at the border as the law requires several years ago. Some bit, most got burned for 1,000s

Caveat Emptor

Only if you are hospitalized or physically unable to travel and have medical verification of same from cedula accredited physicians.

Ah, that explains it. My husband and I went to Ajijic so he could go into a nursing home, while I returned to the US to work.  Someone at one of the homes we looked at said it was possible to get his extension without his leaving Mexico. This was last month. I'm back in the US trying to figure out how to arrange his extension before it turns into a crisis. He has a doctor at his Ajijic nursing facility, so the medical certification won't be a problem. If anyone has a suggestion for an attorney to help me with an extension, I'd appreciate a message.

I think INM may go to the nursing home, or hospital, to confirm things, and extend the permit.

In any event, I am sure that Spencer would be your best choice for assistance.
