MEXICO: Reminder – Failure to Report Change of Address May Lead to Financial Penalty

Employers of foreign nationals in Mexico are reminded that all foreign residents in Mexico must notify the Mexican National Immigration Institute (INM) of their personal address within 90 days of any change of address due to the recent earthquakes in Mexico, or for any other reason.

Failure to comply with this obligation may subject the foreign resident to the payment of a fine.
