Mexican law provides for several types of stays for tourism, business visits, study, employment, and permanent residence.  It also provides paths for foreign nationals to acquire permanent residence and Mexican citizenship, usually after a qualifying period of temporary stay in Mexico.
 
Foreign nationals may conduct any activity for up to 180 days under a Visitor Visa, provided they receive no payments from a Mexican entity. Business visitors to Mexico require the Multiple Use Immigration Form, issued upon arrival at a Mexican port of entry. Depending on his or her nationality, a foreign national may require an entry visa to visit Mexico. Visa-exempt nationals qualify for electronic FMM if crossing the border to Mexico by land from the United States.
 
There are two primary employment categories in Mexico: (1) intracompany transfer for visits of up to 180 days, and (2) local hire and intracompany transfer for employment periods that extend beyond 180 days.
Local hires and intracompany transferees on assignments of 180 or more days require a Temporary Residence Visa (Remunerated or Non-Remunerated activities, as applicable) and a Resident Identification card. 
 
Detailed Immigration Snapshots, Document Lists and Process Guides are available to clients on request.
