Question  Expired FMT . . . 6 Years!
Posted for a friend who wishes to remain anonymous:

Ok here is my dilemma.... I am married to a Mexican national and came to live in Silao in 2004. I have a son that was born here also, plus my 2 daughters that I brought with me from the US .

Well I have not been back to the US since I came. I came by plane then and did not need a passport at the time. I actually just got my passport last week, and it has never been stamped. I received my FMT and went on my way. Well the time has come now and I need to go home but I do not have my FMT that actually expired 6 years ago. In 2007 I went to immigration to ask about getting an FM3 and did not have enough papers with me to get one. Immigration kept my FMT and left me with nothing, so now what am I supposed to do?

I am told that if I leave by plane I will have to pay some fine, or I should leave by bus and no one will know anything. My friend just left Mexico on an expired FMT and they never asked her anything crossing by land.

Does anyone know what the fine is? Can I just say I lost it and I?ll be fine? I just found all this out and I was trying to leave by plane Monday. Can someone give me any advice? :huh:

Thank you

Hi. Couldn't you just "be here" on a Tourist Visa and say you've lost it? Sometimes when I fly in, they don't stamp anything in my passport so I can't imagine having no stamps is a problem. One time I really did lose my Tourist Visa so, when I tried to fly out of Leon, they sent me to the Immigration Office in the airport, charged me 500 pesos, and issued me a new one. Then I went back to the check-in desk (Continental), they took the Visa, and I went on my way. If this doesn't work, I'd call Martha (http://www.mexicanliving.us). Good luck. Terri
