What Happens Once the Mexican Consulate Approves Your Resident Visa? (Video)



We get a lot of questions from our readers about the procedures/paperwork involved in the second part of the residency process. That’s the part that begins once you arrive in Mexico after having received either your temporary or permanent resident visa at a Mexican Consulate.

Instead of writing an article on the subject, I decided to mix it up a little and I created a short animated video to walk you through the process.

Let’s Wrap This Up

As I stated in the video, my recommendation is to hire a professional to handle the second part of the immigration process. It just makes life much easier.

If you’re looking for a professional in the area of Playa del Carmen, we highly recommend Adriana Vela. She does an outstanding job, speaks fluent English and is very reliable. Here’s her contact information:

Well, that’s it for today. Linda and I are headed out on a mini-vacation this morning and I still need pack! Hasta luego. 

Qroo Paul

Paul Kurtzweil (Q-Roo Paul) was a deputy sheriff in Florida for 25 years before retiring at the rank of lieutenant in 2015. He and his wife moved to Mexico looking to maximize their retirement income. They later started a blog called Two Expats Mexico (qroo.us) to share their experiences, as well as information about the logistical and legal aspects of retiring south of the border.
