Mexican banknotes

The National Migration Institute (IMN) has updated Mexican immigration fees for 2023. Below we have translated 2023’s fees for your convenience. Remember that some immigration procedures incur two fees, and others, just one. That is, the paperwork can have a cost, as can the issue of a document. Therefore, check at your local immigration office or with your facilitator, just in case.


Immigration procedures usually require official documentation, photos and proof of identity. Therefore, make sure to prepare well in advance. Indeed, documents may require translation or apostilization. If you apply from outside Mexico, this blog might also help: Documents you need to bring with you when you move to Mexico.


Finally, check our articles on permanent and temporary residency, and regularization for more advice.
