Applying for residency

Can't Post | Private Reply
I would like to begin the residency (pensionado) application process and would appreciate any direction from others who have traveled this road. I believe that I have all of the necessary documents ready to present.

I am presently living in Aguascalientes, so I assume I will need to visit Guadalajara.

Thanks in advance

Actually you start the process in your home country at a Mexican Consulate or Embassy unless you are married to a Mexican National or have Mexican National children.

So you are on a tourist permit currently?

As for the requirement to start the process at a Mexican consulate in your home country, some people have had the experience that they were able to do it successfully in another country (Belize, Guatemala, USA for non-USA citizens).

If you are on a 180 day tourist permit, your closest Mexican Consulate will be in Laredo, TX. You will have to prove financial assets with up to a year‘s bank statements, Social Security & retirement, etc.
If you have a Residente Temporal Visa, and/or an unbroken string of previous FM2/3 visas, you may be able to apply at INM in Mexico without having to prove financials.
