Completing the FM3 application online

To complete the application online, click on the link below. You will open an executable file (you need to allow pop-ups) and will fill out the form on your computer. Print the document and bring 3 copies with you. Below is a handy guide to understanding the terms to fill out the document.  There are a number of errors in translation on the application itself so it is helpful to have this guide handy when filling out the application. We also keep copies of the application in our office and can assist you in completing the forms and letters.

Click here to open the executable file.

Download a printable copy of the application here.

See this page for assistance on putting together your file and photos as well as for our fees to assist you in processing your application, going to the immigration service on your behalf, etc.

Apellido paterno, materno, nombres – this part needs to coincide with your passport and birth certificate, with the exception of married women that have changed their last name after marriage in which case the accompanying marriage certificate will justify the name change, unless you have a second last name (not a hyphenated or double-barelled last name), do not put anything in the apellido materno box, put your full first and middle names in the nombres box
