The New INM Regs Part 3

After two weeks of constantly phoning the number provided on the London Embassy’s webpage, the call was both connected and answered! I was promptly given another number to ring – this wasn’t the correct number for visa enquiries. Which either failed to connect or went straight to an answering machine. Day after day.

But yesterday, Mrs P found a new number to ring. From where I do not know. She wouldn’t explain this piece of magic. It was magic because this number lead to a phone which was also answered. Happy days. Further, it was answered by a very pleasant and helpful Mexicana. She gave me some basic info – Mrs P and I will need to go to the embassy together with a selection of documents. What documents? She gave me an email address to write to, and she would reply with the list.

Our marriage certificate is of course a must. And we have that, so no problems. Except, there may be a problem. Does it need to be apostilled? She wasn’t sure, and will let us know. And if so, will we need to get it apostilled in Milwaukee where the wedding took place? Or can we pop into the US Embassy in London? Will I have a visa in time to spend New Year in the United States of Mexico. Will that country even still exist? We will find out shortly. In the meantime, let us pray…

    The apostille of a document issued in Wisconsin will be done by the Wisconsin Secretary of State. Go to the website to learn about the procedure.

    Just light a candle to the Virgin and all should go well. I am finding out more from you here sitting in my home in Patzcuaro than I would be able to do if I tried to contact immigration. At least you were able to get to someone for whatever information you got! It is really hard to find accurate information so I look forward to Part 4.


    • The whole process is just a minefield of misinformation, gaps in the information and interpretation of what information there is. I wish everyone who is about to endure this journey my best wishes!


      • Right back at you with best wishes. My process is complicate because my US passport also has to be renewed before the end of the year. It may get tricky because not long after that the FM process begins. Hopefully the timing will be perfect 🙂

    Dude you are doing it the right way but not the easy way. Its my understanding that it is not a requirement for you to be outside of Mexico to apply for an FM2 or 3. the easiest is just to go to Mexico and struggle with the documentation once you are there. Also, Mexico now has universal healthcare so your wife will be covered by it, or you can get a private health insurance once you are there.
