What is the change? The National Institute of Immigration office in Mexico City has announced that residence permit renewals and exchanges will take almost two weeks longer than normal to process.
What does the change mean? Residence permit renewals and exchanges will take up to 20 business days, rather than the standard seven business days. It is not clear how long the delays will last.
Background: Mexico has seen significant processing delays in recent months due in part to personnel changes and because the government has shifted resources to address increased migration from Central America.
Analysis & Comments: Employers and foreign nationals should take note of the delays and plan accordingly. Foreign nationals who need to travel abroad while a renewal is pending are encouraged to obtain a departure and reentry permit from their local immigration office at least one week in advance.
