IMPACT – HIGH
What is the change? Mexico’s Instituto Nacional de Migración (INM) offices in Mexico City and the State of Mexico (Estado de Mexico) have announced that their offices will remain closed until further notice. The offices had been closed for the holidays and the closures were extended because of the COVID-19 pandemic and the current “red light” status in these two jurisdictions.
What does the change mean? All immigration services in these offices will be paused during this time. Employers and employees with pending immigration applications should expect delays.
Background: Immigration offices in Mexico initially closed from Dec. 25 to Jan. 4 because of the holidays. These closures were extended until Jan. 10 because of COVID-19 and they were further extended again in Mexico City and the State of Mexico.
Analysis & Comments: The INM offices in Mexico City and State of Mexico have not announced contingencies for those with urgent immigration needs. The response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, and Deloitte will provide additional updates as information becomes available. Please check Deloitte’s COVID-19 Digital Map, available here, for information on travel restrictions and immigration changes in other countries.
