Adriana Vela on Expats Like Us Podcast

In this article we share a recent interview with Adriana Vela on navigating Mexican residency and immigration in 2024. The interview is part of a podcast series from Expats Like Us: Life in Mexico ‒  a popular YouTube channel.

An Argentinian national, Adriana has been a resident in Mexico herself since 2012. She has assisted clients with immigration independently via Immigration to Mexico for eight years. Prior to that she provided the same service for a local law firm in Playa del Carmen. She is considered an authority on immigration procedures in various locations in Mexico.

In the interview, Adriana:

  • discusses the differences between permanent and temporary residency.
  • clarifies the difference between citizenship and permanent residency.
  • outline the basic requirements to apply for Mexican citizenship.
  • provides financial requirements for specific US consulates.
  • advises on general requirements for residency.
  • shares information on the current ‘regularization’ opportunity to receive residency with an expired tourist visa.    

… and much more.

The interview also contains real examples from the experiences of hosts, Bob Bosse and Chris Kovalsky, who are residents in Mexico from the US.
