Residency Requirement

Post by gringo_pv on Tue Oct 17, 2017 5:01 pm

Can anyone tell me what the requirement is, for time in Mexico, for a permanente? Or if there are any. I'd like to return to the States for maybe a year, but do not want to relinquish my visa.

I have a daughter needing some assistance after a medical procedure, if that would be considered by Immigration.

If you have a residence visa, you are free to come and go at will. However, you will have to be in Mexico for the renewal tramite period, whenever that occurs for you.

He is asking about a permanente. No renewal required. At least not yet...

Exactly, thanks Bob. I have been told, one must be 'in country' for 6 months and a day, but maybe a stop at Immigration is in order.

Yes, for Permanente. I missed that.
In the case of a Residente Permanente, it is quite permanent. If you change your address in Mexico you are supposed to notify INM after you move. We are still Residente Permanente and enter and exit Mexico at will, but have not established a new residence in Mexico.....yet, so have not been required to notify INM. I have not felt the need to confuse them with questions about our situation..

Something to bear in mind. My rep/friend at Monex advised me that all my addresses, Monex, SAT, IMM must match, or Monex can and will close your account. They are checking with increasing frequency, so he says.

This was brought to my attention just last month. Other banks,....no idea.

Then don't deal with MONEX! That's bullsh*t. Real banks don't do that.

Under the US Federal rules for "financial institutions" with clients living abroad part or full-time, aka FATCA, FBAR, Money Laundering regulations and Know Your Client regulations, MONEX, HSBC and other banks~financial institutions with both Mexican & US operations, the Banks et al MUST track our whereabouts (our addresses & accounts).

Under the changing, increasing joint Mexican & US financial institution rules, HSBC has forced us to come in and fill out various legally-ordained US govt & Mexican forms, or (ultimately) have our funds frozen.

The US & Mexican legal requirements have been changing~increasing worlds of finance, government tracking & legally mandated reporting during the last 3 years. What worked 3 years ago, does not meet current US requirements.

Big Brother's appetite ... arm ... & reach ... have been growing. MONEX seems to be simply complying with the rules for operating internationally ... to avoid the wicked $100's billions in penalties assessed on HSBC et al ... as the US & Mexican governments seek to monitor & control (often illegal) cross-border fiscal activities.

Unfortunately, the new & evolving rules for monitoring & controlling cross-border financial activities, is now catching us little fish in the government's nets of so-called attempts at controlling~blocking the elaborate "money laundering" & Big Boys tax evasion schemes.

In just the last 18 months we've had to go in to HSBC 4 separate times to give them all the documentation & complete various official forms. ... Think FBAR, FATCA, W-9's, W-8 BENs, etc.

The OP asked about residency requirements, not issues with financial institutions. I would be good if that topic were started as a separate thread.

Yes, the OP's question was answered.
I was referring to the topic about financial institutions and government tracking relating to such.
