Marigot,

In a news conference this morning Pompeo said that said Mexico was open to Mexican citizens and residents. Take that for what it's worth. I hate to speculate on what constitutes proof of residency. That said it is my understanding tourist permits will not be issued without proof of residency. So will have to see. Again this is a fluid situation it appears nothing is absolute

Trump made his speech today, and the border will close at midnight, for nonessential travel. Work and medical are a couple of the exceptions, but they are not letting people going down as tourist to visit, nor come up for the same reasons.

Its pretty clear that tourism travel is really the only thing that's restricted. If you going to work (daily), go home, go to see a dr, are in the military, are going to volunter to help, delivering commercial goods, etc, is all classified as essential travel. 


Says nothing about traveling to go to funerals, so I just hope that doesn't become our reason to travel in the future.


But to me, saying they have closed the border is a pretty big spin on the real truth. Almost like fake news.

Looking at the border cams for both crossings in Nogales. Absolutely no one in line at all! And no trucks in the picture, either!

What the heck it going on?

There must have been more Mexicans in line, who shop in the US, than I realized.

The El Imparcial ones seem to be working fine for me. About a 15 minute delay on the time stamp on the Mariposa crossing and the date is one day off. One day in the future, not the past.

Back to the FMM question. If the responsible thing to do is "shelter in place" and we decide to do that here, what happens when our FMM expires in May? I'm thinking that since "tourism" is not being allowed, a new tourist card is out of the question. One of many dilemmas coming our way. Stay safe and healthy folks.

Well, a trip up to km21 may be the only way to find out if they will issue the FMM.  If you do it, please let us know about your experience.

  My Girlfriend is checking on all the options available to US residents on a timeline visa(my 6 months ends 29th of April). I will update information asap.. Laura is a lifetime resident of Hermosillo and retired CFE. She has a huge family in Hermosillo and hopefully she can find the answers to renew visas or other options. ;)  We may not need to go to the 21 kilometer office.. She is checking Guaymas or Hermosillo options.

Thank you, 50 out. That would be most helpful.

 Update,  So far most of the agencies are scrambling to contain the virus. So much going on gringos on a 6 month or whatever amount of time tourist visa is not a priority I guess. In all fairness to worry I was here for 6 months last winter with no visa.. and 4 months in Hermosillo the winter before that. I had been pulled over only one time by a policia federal and only asked for a passport and wanted to see inside my Toyota. I opened every door and the trunk and after a quick look I was on my way. That was 50 miles north of Hermosillo on Mex. Auto pisa 15.  May 2018 I was also checked by the guys checking for illegally imported cars? Wanted passport, License, registration, and even matched up vin numbers, but never asked about a visa?  My Gals still checking Immigration resources but she said that they really haven't had time to address this issue. We will continue checking. There is a immigration office in Guaymas near the Burger King. I will go by there tomorrow early as they close at 1pm. Will update when more information becomes available.  I stand corrected as my visa runs out March 29th.:shock: I got a visa this year because I was advised if I were involved in an accident or legal process it could get touchy with no visa?
