Following the immigration process
The immigration process is a multifaceted matter and there are many procedures involved. The Temporary or permanent residences are the most requested In Puerto Peñasco: “When an alien comes to Mexico he/she usually has two intentions: the first, to live temporarily or permanently in the country and the second is to buy real estate; in either case, a legal residence status will be requested and the Treasury Department will request a NUE (Alien Unique Number), granted by the National Institute of Migration to a legal resident in Mexico only, therefore it is mandatory to be a legal resident.”
The Immigration process in Mexico, especially in the bordering states is a subject with a wide range of characteristics that involves professionals of all types. In Sonora, more so in Puerto Peñasco, the specialized immigration lawyers have a special role since those who exercise it, carry a great responsibility and help visitors to become residents. The lawyer Isbia Chavez Jauregui, worked
for the National Institute of Migration for more than four years, and has specialized in immigration. She mentioned the steps involved in these immigration procedures, specifically in our municipality.
Forms and protocols
Ms. Chávez’s office will supply any extra forms that may be required. Normally once the process has been resolved and authorized, two e-mail notifications will be received for fingerprinting and deliver the photos; the process time to pick up your resident card will be between two to three weeks (in the understanding that each case is different and that the waiting time may vary, whether it is shorter or longer time).
Chavez stressed the importance of making clear that in Mexico there are certain protocols that must be followed for the completion of this type of paperwork, and according to her experience, sometimes the perception on the way said processes have to be carried out are wrong, we will inform the interested party properly and professionally according to his or her situation. Chávez offers help at her office from the beginning to the end like the original documents required to be presented for collation, which are returned to the client on the same day the application is filed to immigration. The fees paid to the National Institute of Migration have to be made at the bank only -without exception- to the assigned bank to its specific account number, which varies depending on the procedure or residence time allowed.
