As of June 1, the Immigration Office (INM) is extending the suspension of immigration requirements related to temporary and permanent residency.

Key Points:

  • The INM suspension extension applies to foreign nationals holding temporary or permanent residency, whether they are currently in Mexico or abroad.
  • The suspension will remain in effect until health authorities decide government offices can resume activities.
  • For residents, the deadline to complete all additional expiration-related requirements due from April 1 onward will be the day after the suspension is lifted.
  • The suspension does not apply to companies, which must continue to complete requirements within the normal period determined by the INM (generally within 10 business day of receiving notification).
  • The suspension also does not apply to non-resident foreign nationals who must continue to complete registration within 30 days of arrival.

Background: The INM initially suspended immigration requirements for temporary and permanent residents in April.
