FM3, FM2 – changes and notifications

In Mexico, foreigners need to have a permit/visa to stay in the country longer than the days allowed by the tourist card/visa.

There are certain benefits and obligations to having a visa in Mexico, the most common of which is an FM3. See our article on obtaining the visa here.


Citizenship – Obtaining Mexican Nationality through Naturalization by Residency

Mexican nationality can be obtained by various means such as marrying a Mexican, having children born in Mexico, etc., see list below. The most common way that we deal with is nationality and naturalization through residency. Once a resident has had an FM3 for 5 years, he/she can apply for an FM2, a higher level of residency or immigrant status. After having the FM2 for five years, the individual can then request the status of nationality.
