• Comprobante de pago de derechos.
Receipt of payment of application fees. (Note: You must obtain a payment form at the INM office, or follow the instuctions provided by Intercasa below to obtain and complete the form online. Then you pay the fees at any nearby bank. The bank will issue a receipt that you'll submit to INM. Guad INM also wants one copy of the receipt).
• Escrito bajo protesta de decir verdad en el que manifieste que subsisten la condiciones bajo las cuales le fue concedida la característica migratoria, así como manifestación de las actividades que se encuentra realizando.
A written and signed declaration under oath stating you maintain the conditions whereby your migratory status was granted and that your activities within Mexico (Rentist, etc.) also remain unchanged.
(EXEMPLAR OF DECLARATION)
Dirigido al Instituto Nacional de Inmigración:
To the National Institute of Immigration:
Yo, Your Name, bajo protesta de decir verdad declaro que mantengo las mismas condiciones y actividades realizadas bajo las cuales me fue concedida mi característica migratoria (FM3), Deseo prorrogar mi característica migratoria (FM3). (Note: Complete this in Spanish. The English translation below is FYI)
I, Your Name, declare under penalty of perjury that I maintain the same conditions and activities under which my migratory status (FM3) was granted. I wish to renew my migratory status (FM3).
Note: The Guadalajara INM Office sometimes requires proof of residence and bank statements. They’ll accept a copy of a utility bill as long as your name appears on it. These requirements do not appear as official requirement on the INM website, but are sometimes needed – at least in Guad. Take them along to avoid return trips.
(INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING ONLINE APPLICATION)
On the Formato migratorio para trámites de estancia (Migratory format) page you will complete the online application that you must print out and take to INM together with the other required documents. Ensure pop-up blocker is disabled on your web browser because an Adobe Reader pop-up page of the completed application that you’ll need to print will appear when you finish entering your information and click on Guardar (Save).
From the ¿Qué desea hacer? (What do you want to do?) pull down menu, select Extender la estancia (Extend my stay)
From the Especifique (Specify) pull down menu, select Prorroga de No inmigrante (Renew migration status of non-immigrant – FM3)
The rest is filling in your personal information. It is very important the information is entered EXACTLY as it appears in your passport. Double and triple check ALL your entries because if even one error is detected by INM, your application will be rejected and you'll need to start from scratch. No changes can be made on the application once it's printed out.
(INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING PAYMENT FORM ONLINE - Thanks Intercasa)
For the pago de derechos go here: http://derechos.inami.gob.mx/WebDatos.aspx
Choose DSMO from the drop down, FISICA from the next drop down, then enter your first and last name. Hit aceptar
Next page choose Art. 8 Fracc II and then at the drop down below choose Guadalajara.
Once your application is accepted by INM, you will be provided with a document that instructs you how to track the progress of your application online. When your new FM3 is ready, you return to INM with the required "infantil" size photographs - three front, two profile. They will then finger print you and issue your new FM3.
Good Luck -- G
