Yup that came with the mixup in 2012 if I remember corretly. I've been travelling to Mexico for close to a decade now.

So is the work permission just a blanket permission or is it like the old FM3 where it is tied to one employer and then you would apply for a change of employer if that happened. I am guessing the Temprorary residency must be a year or something, with annual renewals.

If you are going to get permission to work here, you will be given the 3rd option. You will be approved for one year. Before it expires you will need to renew. They will renew anywhere from one year to three years.

If you get your temporary residence with permission to work, if you get fired or quit.your job, you have 90 days to find a new job and do a change of employer with immigration. If you do not, you will have to leave the country.

As far as your dive shop hiring comment. Absolutely they will hire you but don't expect any help with immigration from them.

Anyway, good luck with your search.
That is actually a little better I think than the old deal regarding the 90 days to get another place of employment, as I am not sure that was possible in the past as if I remember correctly and I could be wrong each FM3 was tied to a specific work permit.

I am not a British National under the current British Nationality Act to my understanding, although that would be a legal issue, I am not a British Passport holder. I did have the chance to study there for a bit at a place called the Bader International Study Centre at Herstmonceux Castle, good experience I would do it again.

Here is a nice aerial picture of it. It was a unique study holiday for me. If you have kids etc.. I would recommend they check it out if given the opportunity.

I am actually considering trying to learn enough Spanish to do studies at UNAM or La Salle or something. I am not yet sure on funding for that. As I have a degree already getting student funding could be more difficult. The garden looks nicer in person, the castle more lived and real. Places like Battle Abbey are probably also a really cool place to send your children if they are not yet to the college/University level too.
