Immigration Updates - August

Post by Intercasa on Fri Aug 09, 2013 9:50 am

Well it seems as if the rumors are coming true.  We have had many problems recently with the residente permanente applications.

Chapala has been taking 4 months plus to review applications with bank statements.  People complained about this so we started sending files to Guadalajara and they are faster.

No good deed goes unpunished and Guadalajara has rejected many applications and not even received them saying they didn't think the person's signature matched their passport, we even had to physically bring people there to sign in front of them to prove they really signed the application.  Next they decided they wanted to see everyone's original passports and once again rejected applications.

Now they want proof someone is receiving a pension (not just bank stmts) and is retired.  How can we prove someone is not working apart from their word?  How do we prove extraterrestrial aliens don't exist (apart from the ones working on residente permanente files at immigration in Guadalajara)?

We now advise all people to renew as temporary and then right away for for permanent if they want to avoid being rejected and losing prior years due to the lag time in processing leading to the old document expiring.

Also there still exist differences between the offices, it is so crazy as each file needs to be analyzed to determine where we send it and for some sent to Guadalajara we have had to make a few trips due to people not signing close enough to their passport signature.

There are still mistakes being made which we can appeal and win however the appeal process takes months and in the meantime you are trapped in Mexico and cannot leave the country.

So where does that leave those of us that paid for our permanente in May, filed in Chapala? What about those of us that were on FM2? Are you going to contact us individually?

And, not being able to leave the Country is very disturbing.
We have families(possbly with serious sickness), Funerals, etc
AND , many other reasons that demand an immediate departure...

I think these problems need to be discussed from the USA Sec of State office

They are also checking people and canceling them if they entered or left as tourists, NEVER ENTER AS A TOURIST EXCEPT IF YOU ARE A TOURIST OR RISK YOUR TEMPORARY OR PERMANENT DOCUMENT BEING CANCELED.

I think that you can get a Permiso Para Salir y Regresar from INM. Check it out.

You can leave the country except if we do an appeal, well we could do a special writ but that is expensive.
