I wanted to let everyone know, I received my FM3. It was not as difficult as I anticipated. The whole process took a total of 5 days, including time of postage. I mailed the application on Monday. They call me for the interview on Wednesday. And I picked it up on Friday. I do not know if this is the norm, or maybe North Carolina is an unusual state. Never the less, I have my FM3 in hand. I want to thank everyone that helped me through the process, but most of all I want to thank this Site; it holds a wealth of information and even more, the best people on the internet. Next stop; Mexico City February 13 :clap2:

Congratulations!
Now, you must remember a few very important things.
1. Be sure to get your FM3 stamped on the 'Entrada' page when you enter Mexico; it is a must.
2. Within 30 days of that date, you must go to INM (Immigration) with proof of address, photos, etc. and register the FM3 in Mexico. A definite must.
3. From then on, you must renew it, with the same proofs, 30 days before expiration, in Mexico; so, plan ahead and mark your calendar.
4. If you exit Mexico, get the FM3 stamped on the 'Salida' page.

That's great! Did you do it at Raleigh Consulate? They have been very helpful but we have been holding off till package major shipment.
