New Immigration Procedures for Foreigners in Mexico

Beginning May 1, 2010, changes to Mexico's immigration law will be put into effect. 

Changes are as follows:

The FMT, or Forma Migratoria de Turista, will be replaced with the FMM, or Forma Migratoria Multiple.  The FMM will be valid for up to 180 days from the date of entry into Mexico. 

The current FM-2 and FM-3 visas (for employees, business owners, investors, students, etc) which are paper booklets (similar to a passport) will be replaced with plastic cards.

These changes are great news for foreigners in Mexico (or those planning on moving) as they will help to ease the immigration process.
