Event: Mexican immigration authorities (INM) have implemented a pilot project to eliminate the Forma Migratoria Multiple (FMM) in select airports across Mexico. Under the new pilot program, INM stamps the visitor’s passport with the period of authorized stay instead of issuing a paper FMM.
As of the publication of this alert, INM has not yet updated its website to reflect this change in procedures or the pilot program. Please follow the instructions provided by immigration officials and your airline.
U.S. citizens are reminded to carefully review and abide by the period of admission authorized by immigration authorities upon entry. Visitors to Mexico are required to carry their original passport—not a copy—at all times. If you received a paper FMM upon arrival, you are also required to keep that with you, and should be prepared to provide it to immigration authorities when you depart. Visitors not carrying their passport or who remain in Mexico beyond the authorized period may be detained, fined, and/or deported.
