The service begins with a personal consultation with our associate, to help you plan your application strategy, answer any questions you have, and identify the best route for residency given your individual circumstances.

In addition to consultation and advice, the service provides practical help and support as you make your way through the procedures including:

  • review of your documentation for accuracy and completeness;
  • assistance with scheduling of appointments at the Mexican consulate abroad and/or immigration office in Mexico—see next section for details;
  • filling-out the various application forms;
  • writing the necessary letters (in Spanish);
  • the support continues when you arrive in Mexico and exchange your visa for a residency card; and
  • the service also provides ad-hoc advice and troubleshooting and problem solving (if needed), as you move through the application

Appointments at Mexican Consulates and immigration offices

The procedures for booking appointments at Mexican consulates abroad varies by location: some consulates use an online booking system, others require an email to be sent, and others have walk-in dates.  Our associate will assist you with appointment scheduling in accordance with the policy and process in place at the consulate you apply at.

The electronic booking system for appointments at immigration offices in Mexico is currently offline and applicants need to attend the office in person to ask for an appointment date, or a service token.
