Extending an FM-T

Post by Clueless on Fri Jan 09, 2015 7:13 am

I have been under the impression that the only way to extend the 180 day visa was to go out of Mexico and return, but I just read on a travel blog (from a self-proclaimed "Mexico Expert," that an extension can be obtained at the local immigration office (with payment of fees of course).

There was no date on the article.

Is this correct today?

Thanks.

There are no extentions on a tourist visa, you must leave the country within the 180 days. You can then return with a new 180 day visa or with a temporal or permanente which can be obtained at the Mexican consulate.

You can also go to Tijuana and not leave Mexico to get a new tourist card. Immigration can extend cards up to 6 months total but if you already have 180 days then there is nothing.

At the end of the 180, can it be done at Immigration in Chapala?

Trying to save a long/expensive trip to the border for a friend.

Thanks.
