The Immigration Office in Mexico (INM) has suspended immigration requirements for residents until April 30 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Key Points:

  • Deadlines, steps and requirements for residence permit holders are suspended until April 30.
  • Renewals for residence permits expiring between April 1 and April 30 may be filed until May 4.
  • For residents, the deadline of 10 business days to fulfill all additional INM requirements requested from April 1 until April 30 will begin counting on May 4, allowing until May 15 to complete requirements.
  • The 10-business-day deadline for companies and non-resident foreign nationals entering Mexico on a visa is extended until April 13.
