You are wise to wait on your visa until the University can help you. Residente Temporal does not exist yet. It's still No Inmigrante (old FM3) You'll find a lot of useful information about moving to México here.
Thanks Rolly! I actually got the Residente Temporal designation from your website but I obviously misread/misunderstood that. I appreciate the correction. I must say, your site has been a great resource. :)
You guys are great and the thorough instructions couldn't be more helpful. I was able to get on Google Maps street-view and flollow direction to the CIITEV building without a problem. Does anyone know when the CIITEV office opens?
A little bit of a tangent but for completness; I know I said we wanted to avoid the RGV crossings but I thought I'd ask about the Reynosa crossing. The last time I did any "interior" driving in Mexico was in 2004 and I would cross at Nuevo Progreso and take Hwy 2 up to Reynosa and get on the cuota (Hwy 40) to Monterrey. Let me just ask it straight out: Is Reynosa a bad idea? This would make us drive straight through Monterrey before hitting Saltillo but I could live with that if that's the worst of it.
We're thinking of visiting family in the Valley prior to leaving for Mexico and the back-track to Laredo would be a bit of a nuisance. Of course, I'd galdly travel and stay the night in Laredo if it means a safer trip.
