Upon arrival:

*To obtain your FMM, upon entering Mexico and going through migration:

  1. Inform that you will make a stay of academic mobility: show your passport, visa and acceptance letter if required.
  2. Inform the duration of your stay in Mexico: if you enter without a student visa, the immigration authority will write on your FMM: 180 days. If you enter with a student visa, the immigration authority will indicate in your FMM: 30 days-exchange.
  3. The immigration authority will retain the upper part of the FMM and give you the lower part where you will place a stamp with the date of entry.

Keep the original FMM with your passport as it will be necessary to prove your legal stay in Mexico and it will also be necessary to leave the country (if you lose it you will have to replace it in the INM).

Student Visa


If your stay in Mexico will be two semesters (more than 180 days) you must obtain a student visa at the Mexican Consular Office closest to your place of residence.

Upon entering Mexico with a student visa you must obtain a Temporary Student Residence status:

  • Within 30 days of your arrival, you must complete the "FMM exchange by Resident Card" procedure. This procedure is free.
  • The foreigner who does not make the exchange of the FMM for the resident card within the specified period is subject to the sanctions provided by the General Population Law and may be removed from the mobility program.
  • Once you obtain your resident card, you can enter and exit multiple times of the national territory. You must show your Resident card in each entry/ exit.

Be sure that when you arrive in Mexico, your FMM will mark 30 days-exchange. If your FMM is not checked correctly, ask for a correction.
