If your goal is citizenship, I suggest you talk to the Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores (SRE). The information you receive will be more reliable than anything any one here tells you.

Having said that, I can tell you that when I talked to them last week, they told me I needed 5 years on an FM-2/Inmigrante/Residente Permanente. They do not count time on an FM-3/No-inmigrante. I am not sure about Residente Temporal.

Here is the new characteristics that classify INM visas.

Residente Temporal Rentista is classified as Inmigrante, only Residente Permanente is classified as Inmigrado now. If the SRE stated Inmigrante and Inmigrado counts towards 5 years living in Mexico then I presume 4 years on a RT Rentista and 1 year on a RP is 5 years.

I read you can apply 6 months before the 5 years at SRE. I also read you have to prove you have not been out of the country more than 6 months in the last 2 years of living in Mexico before applying for citizenship. Also you have to keep your nose clean with the police and courts.

Just spoke with SRE last week about this.

1. Five years FM-2 or inmigrado, if you have less than 5 years on your permanente (which applies to everyone) they wany you to go to immigration and get a copy of your last FM-2 to demonstrate 5 years.
2. CURP
3. Certified birth certificate apostilled and translated
4. Sworn letter showing your time out of the country in the last two years.
5. Letter from state officials you are not a criminal.
6. Federal letter that you are not a criminal
7. Speak spanish
8. If you are under 60 take a history test.
9. Show you are integrated in the culture, calling you maid your Mexican friend does not qualify.
10. Of course multiple copies of everything

Not sure if the 6 months is correct it may be less I just went through it but did not worry about it as I had less than 2 months in 2 years.
Go to the SRE site, it gives you the procedure which is pretty simple but is all about timing. You can do it easily without a lawyer and if you are over 60 there is no test.
The trick is to first get your apostilled and translated birth certificate then go to DF to Coyoacan to get your federal police record , get the local police record from the local forensic office and write a letter showing all your entrances and exits out of the country in the last 24 months.
Follow exactly all the intructions on the site re number of copies, what needs to be translated etc..
The hang up comes with your name if you are a woman .
First of all all the first and last names on your birth certificate, passport and your visas have to be exactly the same if they are not you need an affidavit from the consulate translated by a court translator that you are the same person.
You have a choice of names after that you can keep your last name or add your mother´s ast name. If you are a woman it can get a little togher if you ar married or divorced..as your current name does not match your birth record so an affidavit wil do it.,
Once you hav all the papers together including the photos call 333 614 0265 in Guadalajara ext 4158 4160 41 66 make an appointment to review all the papers once they say everything is correct if they have the time you can say you would like to pay the fee go and pay go back with the receipt. At that time you can take the test if you are not 60 (you can study the 200 questions ahead of time from the standardized test from the site) and they will take your application.
They say it takes between 4 to 6 months to hear back and you can check the progress on the computer. I got mine in 3 months.

Important all papers police records and apostilled documents must be current which means not over 3 months old(that is where the timing is important) You need your apostilled and translated birth certificate and copies before you can go to Mexico ot to the local forensic office so get that first.

Call them about any questions you may have.
Good luck

For me being married to a Mexican National I can apply after 2 years of legal residency.

It states your current INM visa must be vigilant for 6 months more before you apply, but with a Residente Permanente that now would not be a problem. Also with the old Inmigrado visa it would not be a problem as no yearly renewals were needed. The old Inmigrante visas would be the ones they are referring to, I suspect.

Three. ".... which the applicant attesting to their legal stay (Art. 14 RLN ) , consequently , residence in the country for five years immediately preceding the date of the application."

Immediately I presumes means a couple of months or less.
