We might consider looking into the requirements both the United States and Canada have for Mexicans asking to be granted visas for entry into each country before this debate continues.

Why would we do that? How many of us have moved to the United States or Canada, or are considering immigrating to either of those countries.

I see no relevance to injecting that into this discussion, unless you want to discuss comparative immigration requirements, in which case a new thread would probably be more appropriate.

You are correct in a sense. If the former No Inmigrante FM-3 Visitante holders decide to now announce their desire to become permanent residents through Residente Temporal without applying for Residente Permanente directly, it is an increase. However, if not, then they do not incur any fees increase, but actually pay less for their Visitante visas.

The original intent of the FM-3 was mainly for tourism with multiple entry and exits on a single visa. It was not designed as a means of immigration for some, just as those who did not qualify for the FM-3 used the FMT and FMM 180 day visas, yet maintained fulltime living in Mexico; and some still do.

We might consider looking into the requirements both the United States and Canada have for Mexicans asking to be granted visas for entry into each country before this debate continues.


Mexico isn't the U.S. or Canada. The U.S. and Canada are not asking people to retire in their countries. If it was this expensive to retire in Mexico before, most of us would not be here. This is like comparing crime rates between MX and up North and then everyone jumps in and says the comparison is meaningless.

Please post what the fees are that you have read because the fees I've seen are three times higher than what I paid for an FM3.

If the original intent of the FM3 was for multiple entries then why did MX have the FMM that is good for 180 days? That doesn't make sense. It obviously was a way to help people live here year round who qualified with less income. If someone is making multiple trips an FMM is less money, no time involved to get one, very little paperwork, and there are no financial qualifications.

This thread has become unwieldily long. Time to start a new one.
