INM has changed their policy on Residente Temporal visas with permission to work for a company who have changed to being self employed, as INM now denies renewals when someone changes to self-employment. INM states that the original RT visa entry conditions no longer exist when a foreigner changes to being self-employed from working for a Mexican employer.
~ Humanitarin visas: Qualifying people who find themselves stuck in Mexico (unable to travel) due to health reasons may now get humanitarian visas. They must get a letter from a government clinic doctor describing their condition(s), also stating that they are unable to travel. Excuses of old age, forgetting to return, or having a broken-down unreliable car are not accepted by INM.
