The FM Renewal: Part 2

What I've done here is link the Mexican Immigration INM Visa Website, for starters.  Then I have reprinted each page, translated the Spanish - in red an highlighted areas that you have to fill in.  The best way to use this guide would be to either print it or open up another application so you can work your way one line at a time.  Good luck.

CONSULTA DE TRÁMITE MIGRATORIO REALIZADA EN LA PÁGINA WEB DEL INSTITUTO NACIONAL DE MIGRACIÓN CON FECHA: 24/Jul/2010


Cédula de consulta  type of consult

Trámite consultado process consulted? (whatever)

Tipo de trámite: Certificado de acreditación de legal estancia This is important. Type of visa. Certificate of legal residence. Keep that in mind when they ask other questions.

Requisitos  Requirements

•Solicitud de trámite. (Formato de estancia) Your application for the visa. CLICK ON "FORMATO DE ESTANCIA" and it takes you to the application you need to fill out.  Read this whole page first though.

•Copia de tu forma migratoria vigente. Copy of your current migratory form (in my case, FM3)

•Comprobante de pago de derechos.  Proof that you paid the dues..which you can't provide until you have done all this other stuff. They give you this paper at your appointment, which you make by phone once you see your confirmation information on the webisite they provide. You go to your appt, they give you the paper, you go to the bank a few blocks away around the corner on Reforma, Banorte, and pay your dues. As soon as you come back with this paper you are good to go....your green number gets you right in and serviced quickly. 

•Escrito firmado por el extranjero en el que manifieste los fines para los cuales requiere el certificado de legal estancia.  This is that letter we have to provide every year. It is supposed to print out for you once you have printed your SAVED APPLICATION.  If you have trouble printing that form, BE SURE TO WRITE DOWN your confirmation number.  They can pull your request up on their computer that way.  And they help fill in the blanks if you hit a wrong button. The letter reads a little differently this year.

¿Dónde debes presentar tu trámite? Where should you present your stuff?

•El trámite lo podrás presentar en cualquier delegación del Instituto Nacional de Migración cercana a tu lugar de residencia. We all know where immigration is located, there is only one office in Merida.  Colon and 8th, if I'm not mistaken.                                                                
•Consulta la siguiente dirección: website for immigration offices.

At this point, when you click SAVE, or ENTER, it spits out a little box with a confirmation number. Write that number down.  If you have trouble printing, you will need that number for certain!  Once you save, it should offer you the option to print.  It's supposed to print the online app info and the letter.  

When you process this paperwork with INM, they give you a paper with your NUT number, your unique tramite number, as well as a password.  You need both those numbers to check the status of your FM process online.  The website to check the status is http://setram.inami.gob.mx:8080/solicitudes-web/seguimiento-tramite.html

Once you see FAVOR DE PRESENTARSE A UNA OFICINA DEL INM
call the office at the number the agent gives you after 1pm.  You make an appointment, pick up some photos at WalMart, infant size front and sides, and wait for your appointment date.  You'll get the last paper to take to the bank and pay your dues, and when you return to INM they fingerprint you and laminate your card right then and there.  Finished for another year.  If you want to change your status....you're on your own.  I'm just getting this part down!  I hope this was helpful for you.

What a thorough job of presenting this new procedure! I have to admit that I always have SOME anxiety, even though I've never had any problems (knock, knock).

Question -- So the letter of request is now automatically produced for you -- you don't need to compose it any more?

Linda Dorton said...

Thanks, I hope it helps.

The letter of request comes up as a prompt for you to print. In my case, when the al at INM helped me she printed my confirmation and the letter spit out right afterwards. Any updates on this procedure I'll be happy to print.

So are you saying that you didn't need to produce any of the usual copies of passport, fm3, bank statements, power bil or other bill, etc....
wow that would be much easier for sure if that is true.

Linda Dorton said...

Brenda, you need the original FM3 or FM2, and the document you print from the computer. They did not require multiple copies of anything else. It is true.

To the person who wrote the third comment, I don't know what it was or how it got deleted. Just so you know, I haven't received any strange comments or deleted any messages here intentionally.

Brenda said...

Thanks for replying Linda.
The third comment was also me. I didn't read it before posting and had made some errors so deleted it. Sorry to confuse you.
Wow, great news that you don't need the bank statements, etc.. Sounds so much easier.
We need to reapply in Sept. as ours runs out in Oct.. So I guess we will see if the office here is the same or if the rules change like before from office to office.
Thanks.

Linda Dorton said...

Brenda, no problem. I thought I'd deleted something accidentally.

Go to http://www.inm.gob.mx/index.php/page/tramites
and look at it. What ever part of Mexico you live in, these rules should apply. There is an English translation page but it only shows pictures of the new ID cards, not much about procedure.

Janice Crofts said...

wow! That helped a lot. I did my over because before reading your blog, I did it wrong. Thanks so much. I use Explorer and still was not given an option to print, so I did what you did. I also did not see a sample letter. Any chance you would be willing to put that on your blog as well>
