Postscript to the Belize document renewal adventure

Can't Post | Private Reply
Just in case anybody is curious: I finally got my papers taken care of thanks to good old-fashioned nepotism.

One of my in-laws, who works for a government agency in Q_Roo, has a friend-of-a-friend who works for the INM. And that individual agreed (for a substantial fee, of course) to meet me in Subtte. Lopez and walk me through everything.

And even with inside help, the whole thing almost fell through at the last minute when the bank employee started freaking out over a trivial (and totally imaginary) problem with my car papers.

Anyhow, my advice for anybody else who is planning to try it would be:
Do NOT assume it's a slam-dunk
Do expect to pay a large "tip"
Don't wait until the last minute, and allow yourself plenty of time
Assume that Murphy's Law is operating at maximum level.

What an excellent follow-up report.

It sure is helpful to hear how things are actually working at that crossing, from an insider's perspective.

Congratulations, happy you were able to work it out.

Will you share the "Tips" you had to pay? I would like to know the going rate. It has been several years since I played that game.
