Lost or Stolen Residente Permanente or Residente Temporal Ca

Lost or Stolen Residente Permanente or Residente Temporal Card
by yucalandia

Sept. 5, 2016:
When we travel, sometimes we lose our Residente Permanente or Residente Temporal cards, or they get stolen. What can we do?
When in Mexico, you go to your INM office, and apply for a replacement.
When traveling outside Mexico, the problems mount, especially because many Mexican Consulates do not know how to handle these things. Fortunately, the ever-conscientious lawyer Lic. Spence McMullen has done the heavy-lifting and describes what we should do.
"If you lose your Mexican immigration card outside Mexico you need a special visa to enter Mexico, ... if you enter as a tourist then they will cancel your old temporary or permanent.**
You need a police report, photo, passport and payment of a small fee.
I have been fighting with many Mexican consulates as they do not know what to do, I have made a sheet from their own manual telling them how to help foreigners in this situation, if you need it, print this file and bring it with you to avoid suffering consequences in Mexico for their bad advice. "
**If you mistakenly allow yourself to enter as a tourist, then INM will cancel your old temporary or permanent. This is a HUGE deal ... a big mistake ... because it forces the foreigner to go back to a Mexican Consulate outside Mexico, and START ALL OVER, reapplying for a new RT or RP visa...
Instead, when you lose your RT or RP visa card, you must go to a Mexican Consulate, and apply for a special travel document to present to the INM agent at the port of entry, which allows the foreigner to re-enter Mexico without being re-classified as a tourist.

We offer that link to the 2012 INM Ley de Migración pages on this, because many Mex. Consulates are not familiar with the requirements. Show them this page when you go to the Consulate, to help their process along.
Unfortunately, this process can take from 2 days to a week, so you may miss your flight as a consequence of losing your RT or RP card.
It is tempting to think that if you carry notarized black & white copies of your INM card, that it would be sufficient to re-enter Mexico (after losing the RT or RP card). Unfortunately, the INM agents say "No copies will be accepted, only your "tarjeta de Migración" is the valid form of documention we want to see" ...
I wish the news was better... so this post is a word-to-the-wise about taking good care of your RT or RP visa card.
