    Hey everyone, What is the vibe on the new immigration rules? Thinking of coming on down on (what was) an FM3 rentista. Do you think the rules are going to be largely the same - ie show about $1200US into a personal bank account for minimum of 3 months and just complete the paperwork? I...

    I recently got my FM2 after completing 5 years with an FM3. I intend to apply for my inmigrado after completing my FM2. I am wondering if anyone knows if there are any benfits with an FM2, other than the right to apply for inmigrado, that I did not have with my FM3.
