Guide to Working in Mexico

Business Agreement

While many foreigners moving to Mexico are doing so to retire, increasing numbers of working-age professionals are seeking to leave their home country and find a life abroad. Indeed, one of the major obstacles (or apparent obstacles) to moving to Mexico is earning a living here.

Job hunting in Mexico is a challenge, especially for foreign nationals. Every year, thousands of foreigners come to Mexico seeking work, ranging from, at the lowest level, informal and part-time work to, at the highest level, qualified, sponsored professionals and executives arriving in Mexico to peddle their expertise in a pre-defined field.

The Guide to Working & Self Employment in Mexico explains the job market and professional working landscape in Mexico, how to go about seeking work, and what to expect from the working environment here: the culture and ways are different to, for example, the U.S. and Europe—even if you are working for an American or European company.
