We publish extensive, up-to-date, information about applying for legal residency in Mexico, including a free eBook: Mexico Immigration Guide
When you apply for residency in Mexico, you’ll need to decide what application route (approach) is best for your individual circumstances, file the application —usually at a consulate outside of Mexico— and then undertake additional procedures to exchange the sticker in your passport for a residency card.
The Mexico Immigration Assistance Service provided by our associates offers one-to-one advice as well as practical assistance by telephone, chat, and email that will save you time, and guide you correctly through the procedures—from discussing the best approach for your application and practical support through the application process itself.
How the Immigration Assistance Service works
The service begins with an initial telephone call to discuss your situation, your plans and goals, and explore the various application routes available to you based on your individual circumstances and intentions.
When the approach has been determined, the service provides practical support throughout the application. Our associates will support you through the application procedures, including scheduling appointments at a Mexican consulate abroad (and at immigration offices in Mexico), completing the forms, writing letters. You’ll also be given a list of all the documentation you need to gather in order to support your paper application, and the residency application interview.
Exchanging your visa for a residency card
When you arrive in Mexico with your residency visa, you will need to exchange your visa sticker for a residency card. The service continues to support you through this, by completing (more) forms, writing the necessary letters (in Spanish), and providing you with a checklist of documents you need to complete this second stage. The service also provides trouble-shooting help throughout the process.
The service thus helps you to structure your application approach based on your circumstances, and provides practical support as you personally make your way through the application procedures to acquire your legal residency in Mexico.
Immigration Assistance Package is valid for full calendar a year
You don’t have to use your package hours all at once.
The 3-hour consulting package usually begins with a 45-60 minute initial telephone call, and afterwards our associate keeps detailed track of the time spent in subsequent emails, chats, and calls.
The 3 hours can be spread over the course of a year from the date of your purchase, so the service will flex with your plans.
