The National Immigration Institute ("NII") published a Ruling on July 31, 2018 that modified certain provisions related to the immigration documents that they issue. The Ruling became effective on August 1, 2018.

From the effective date of the Ruling, the NII must specify the following information in the temporary and permanent resident cards:

  • On the front side: if the foreigner has a work permit or not, the date of issuance (date in which the process was authorized by the immigration authority and, therefore, the initial date of the document's validity), the expiration date and a barcode that verifies the authenticity of the card.
  • On the front side: if the foreigner has a work permit or not, the date of issuance (date in which the process was authorized by the immigration authority and, therefore, the initial date of the document's validity), the expiration date and a barcode that verifies the authenticity of the card.

We recommend that you review that all the information described above has been correctly included in your card right after it is issued; otherwise, this could cause mishaps in your entry/exit to Mexico or it could be denied as a form of official identification.
