Mexican Visa $$ Solvency Requirements for 2020
by yucalandia

December 21, 2019
Mexico’s daily minimum wage will be going up Jan. 1, 2020, to $123.22 pesos per day (20% increase).    Because the INM’s personal monthly income & personal savings requirements for Residente visas are tied directly to the minimum wages,  the INM’s “personal solvency” requirements for foreigners will also automatically rise 20% in January, 2020.

Residente Permanente visa applicants must show a monthly income of 500 times the minimum wage =>  $3,243 US dollars ($61,610 MXN pesos) using an exchange rate of $19:1 … That income must be documented by 6 months bank statements. … People who have liquid assets can also qualify by proving an annual average balance of 20,000 times the minimum wage =>  $130,ooo US dollars ($2,464,400 MXN pesos) using an exchange rate of $19:1 for 2020 applicants … documented by 12 months of bank statements.

Residente Temporal visa applicants must now prove a monthly income of 300 times the minimum wage => $1,946 US dollars ($36,966 MXN pesos) per month (using an exchange rate of $19:1.   Consulates want 6 months of bank statements. … People who have liquid assets can also qualify by proving an average annual balance of 5,000 times the minimum wage => $32,426 US dollars ($61,6100 MXN pesos) account balance for 2020.

New Concept “Boston’s Bus” Shopping and lunch in Merida. Some folks have asked if we would organize a weekly shopping bus. Our friends at Boston’s Pizza would like to help, so here’s the idea: your comments and feedback would be appreciated.  David’s won’t be directly involved in the operation of the service.


A twenty passenger bus would depart every Tuesday 9.30 am, first stop Costco, then Chedraui, and Boston’s for lunch then drop off at your casa or condo around 2 pm. Round trip 200 pesos.


Boston’s will open their patio and promise that there won’t be any loud techno boom boom music. They will keep your frozen food in their freezer.
