Will 2021 be the year you move to Mexico?
No-one needs any reminding that 2020 has been a difficult year. It has been a year that has forced us to re-evaluate our priorities and live in different ways: with restricted movement, more online presence, and with lots of patience.
We’re hoping that 2021 will be a better year. Hopefully conditions will improve worldwide and safe international travel will become possible and flexible again. If so, then a move to Mexico in 2021 could be a reality.
Don’t delay your dreams
An attitude that has arisen in 2020 is that we should not delay taking action on our dreams when possible. Now we know more than ever that something out of our control might delay them further. So, if immigrating to Mexico or elsewhere has been on your wishlist – 2021 could be the time to do it.
Ease financial burden
Unfortunately, the financial situation of many has changed over the past 12 months. Fortunately, Mexico offers a lower cost of living than other North American or European countries. Therefore, a move to Mexico in 2021 could provide a welcome relief from financial burdens. It can also offer a similar standard of lifestyle.
Remote work from Mexico
Now remote working has become the norm. It may therefore be possible for you to work from Mexico while maintaining your position abroad. Consult your employer, and check the requirements for temporary residency on our blog, and the Mexican government website. You could be working in the sun very soon.
Temporary residency for self-employed
If you are self-employed and work online, temporary residency in Mexico could be ideal for you. You must fulfill certain financial conditions, however. Check them out here (in Spanish).
The reasons above are relevant to our experiences in 2020. There are many more reasons to move to Mexico. Read them in our blog 10 Simple Reasons to Immigrate to Mexico.
**At the time of writing December 2020, international travel is still restricted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We encourage our readers to act within the safety guidelines for their own country and Mexico while considering relocation in 2021.
