FM-3 in Santa Rosalie
I have a casita in Mulege BCS and spend 2-3 weeks each year.

Every year I have to renew my FM-3 in Santa Rosalie 30 days before it expires on May 19th. I just heard that they now require 2-3 weeks to process the papers in LaPaz and will deny me to return to the US until the final papers arrive. Is this correct?

Forms and requirements posted in English on website
The Mexican Consulate in San Diego has a website where requirements and necessary documents are posted in English. The problem? Forms were scrambled when posted on the website and they cannot be downloaded (at least, I couldn't do it). Requirements are a bit difficult to understand, but I finally got that straight (I think). I plan to visit consulate and pick up needed forms.

FM2 Expired, need new permanent resident visa
I was told I have to go to the Mexican Consulate to get this visa. When I call to make an appt, that number does not work. I would like to make an appt, and know what documents are necessary to bring to the appt.
Thank you.

Telephone message
I called the mexican consulate San Diego office 619 231 8414 regarding visa requirement for an Austrian citizen traveling to Mexico via cruise ship. I do not speak spanish. My question is why is there no selection for english instruction in your voice mail? The consular office is located in San Diego and travellers are most likely non-spanish speakers. Please accomodate the non-spanish speakers in your service.

Worthless Bureaucracy
You might think this Consulate's office, where probably thousands of Americans will now need to go to apply for residency visas for Mexico, could either post what is required to be submitted with the application, or respond to questions sent in via this web site, or answer their telephones, or return calls. But NO - they don't seem to do a damned thing.

Still waiting.
Here we are in the middle of August and still no response from the representative for the Mexican Consul in Hawaii, I'm trying to get some information on the updating a Mexican passport locally, can't afford to fly to San Diego, CA. for a couple of days just to do this. Please, if anyone knows any info on the next time the Consulate will be out in the Hawaiian Islands please reply.
Aloha, L. Vasquez.
