If the inpat or a family member do not present the Exit and Return permit upon arrival to Mexico, the Immigration Authority will give a Tourist or Business Visitor Status which means that all the process for the Temporary Residency Card
in place will be automatically CANCELLED.
This means that the whole process must be started again, from the work visa process, attending a consular appointment abroad, not having the legal status in Mexico to be employed and or receive any wages at all, etc.
The above will also happen in case that the Exit and Return permit is not clearly or correctly stamped with the Immigration Seal, that is, that any of the corresponding seals are missing. A deteriorated permit will not be accepted by the authority under any circumstance.
If you are a foreigner in Mexico with the Residency Card process still not concluded,
and if you or your family need to leave Mexico our firm can gladly help
you answering your doubts and also assisting you with the process to obtain a special EXIT and RETURN permit.
