Rolly--I have an Expired FM3 and am traveling back to Mexico
Can't Post | Private Reply
We left Mexico in 2008 to move back to the US for my medical care. Our FM-3s were good until Sept. 2009. We were not sure if we'd be back or not. We allowed the FM-3 to lapse and have been back to Mexico wile the FM-3 was still good, but not since. We are now planning to move to Lake Chapala. I am going down to Lake Chapala at the end of February. What do I do with an expired FM-3?
I've had people on another board tell me to enter on a FMM (tourist visa) and later try to get another FM-3.
I've had your co-writer Carol Schmidt tell me to turn the FM-3 in at immigration when I land in Guadalajara and basically take my chances. If I do that do I get fined? Or will they just take it back and not fine me?
What is your recommendation for me to do? I'm confused by the contradictory answers and will trust your advice.
There are hundreds of paths up the mountain,
all leading in the same direction,
so it doesn't matter which path you take.
The only one wasting time is the one
who runs around and around the mountain,
telling everyone that his or her path is wrong.
