Post #7 of 18
I just got back from Migracion in Guadalajara with a few more tasks to take care of. I foolishly assumed the procedures had been simplified, but in reality, they have added a few twists to the process that could well send people with busy working schedules running around with more work to do for Migracion.
1. The new payment form asks you to provide your surname, your mother's name and your first and middle names. But don't do that. The name on the receipt of payment has to match the name in your passport and US passports don't include your mother's name. Now I have to go back to the bank and redo the payment.
2. In my case - retiree with dependent wife applying for extensions of our FM3s - in addition to the letter declaring that you are providing financial support for your dependent (carta de apoyo), you also have to write a letter saying your activity has not changed.
Yo, Sr. so and so, manifiesto baco de protesta de decir verdad que continuo con la misma actividad con la cual me fue autorisado mi FM3 continuando como rentista.Solicito la prorroga de mi documento.
and the dependent has to sign a letter reading as follows:
Yo, Sra. so and so, manifiesto baco de protesta de decir verdad que continuo con la misma actividad con la cual me fue autorisado mi FM3 continuando como dependiente economico de mi esposo.
Solicito la prorroga de mi documento.
I also made the mistake of creating two registrations instead of one when I filled out the online form. I don't know how it happened, but that caused a wait of one hour to get it straightened out.
And I just got back from the bank. I had to pay the fee a second time because they weren't able to just make the change. So Migracion's own payment form asks you to enter your apellido materno, but if you follow their instructions, you're in for trouble.
