Mexico Immigration Law Changes Update by Mexico Living

Mexico Immigration Law Changes—Update

Written by: Mexico Living

Published: Tuesday, August 30, 2011

In May this year, Mexican law-makers announced a root-and-branch revision of the country’s immigration laws. Since then, the internet has been awash with rumors and conjecture about what the changes coming down the pike will mean for visitors, business people and expats living in Mexico.

Tourists and short-term business visitors are expected to remain largely unaffected by the changes, whereas foreign residents, long term visitors and legal residents are expected to be affected by the changes that will be adopted by the Instituto Nacional de Migracion (INM) Mexico’s immigration service, counterpart to the USCIS (formerly INS).

For over 18 months, Mexperience has been working with a specialist expat services firm based in Mexico.  In association with this company, we supply our Mexico Immigration Guide eBook that is available for immediate download.  The firm is staffed by a team of professionals with many years of experience providing expat services, as well as immigration lawyers. To now, they have remained silent about the changes to come, as the law has yet to be adopted “into code” and, until it is, there is no way to know precisely how the law will be implemented.

It’s prudent to wait until the full facts are known and for the INM to publish its procedures before jumping to conclusions about what consequences the new laws will bring about.

In Mexico, new laws must be adopted no later than 180 days (6 months) after the law-makers sign new legislation into being.  This means that the new immigration law must be adopted by the end of November 2011.

The publisher has advised us that it is preparing to update the guide to Mexican immigration within two weeks of the code being formally adopted, i.e. the first half of December 2011.  At that time, we will update our information online and will also update the Mexico Immigration Guide with the definitive information you need to make the right choices about your immigration permits in Mexico.
