Last June I obtained an FM3 at my local consulate, and registered it at my temporary address in Merida, Yucatan. I planned to relocate there - but my plans were delayed and after returning to the US a week later I have not been in Mexico now for nine months.
Now I want to visit Morelia, Michoacan. Will there be any problem using my FM3 for entry, given this history of presence (or lack thereof) in Mexico, and the local registration in Merida? When one has an FM3, is there any requirement for time spent in or our of the country during it's duration?
Also, is there any possibility that I might renew the FM3 during my visit to Morelia if that occurs within 30 days of the anniversary of the activation?
Finally, is the one-year renewal based on the time from the date of issuance of the FM3, or the activation/local registration date?
Thanks in advance for any help with these qustions.
