Residente temporal-Renovación

Dear Expat Community,

My name is Eliette and I'm happily living in Mexico City since a bit more than one year now.

I'm sending you this message, because I'm worrying about the 'renovación' of my current 'tarjeta de residencia temporal'

My past 'tarjeta de residencia temporal' expired at the end of February 2018. I went through all the renewal procedure 2 weeks before the term (including payment) and I'm waiting since then a message from the Instituto on on my personal acount. Nothing!

My application is regularly registred (including the payment), but I received so far neither update, nor invitation to the Instituto, and this since the very beginning of March.

During the first procedure I went through, I waited no more than 2 weeks before receiving an email from them.

What is your experience with the 'renovación'? The Lady who registred my application told me to wait for an email (as for the previous procedure), but I'm slowly getting worried about the delay time.

Any experience on the matter?

Thank you very much in advance.
Un beso,

Have you checked your status online, using the NUT letter e-mail address and contrasigna (password)?
If not, try that. Then, if there is no new information, you should make a personal visit to INM with your tramite letter in hand.

Thank you very much for your response. Yes, I check it all the time.

The thing is that they made a mistake during the procedure and I had to take double mornings off (from my job) in order to restart the whole process.

And for this reason, I didn't want to go there with no pre-information and take one morning off more for nothing at all. Because they're quite agressive and most of the time refuse to answer to your questions.

I really feel bad because I made everything I could in order to respect their guidelines, pay my due, spend hours there in order to reach the right desks... And I'm just like a piece of the basura: They ignore me and I have to run through Mexico in order to get information...

I am sorry to hear that you are having difficulty. However, as long as you have your Tramite, you are legal in Mexico.
Please keep checking, and maybe even call INM, if that is possible.
