Lost immigration form while in US

My husband lost the top half of his immigration form that he gets when leaving Mexico. We have permanent residency cards. Does anyone know what the procedure will be when we get back to Cancun next week? Will it take a lot of extra time to get this sorted out? Thanks for your help.

My first call would be to one of consular offices in the USA to ask them for advice.

Here is a link that should help along those lines.

I would contact the Instituto Nacional de Migracion (https://www.gob.mx/inm ).

I have heard that filling out a new FMM on the flight (as it would have been if you had the original, removing the bottom portion)turn it over to the officer with your passport and RP card, will probably get you thru. If asked by the INM officer "where's the Salida stamp, explain that you did check out but lost the original form. You should have no problems, just do not accept being admitted into Mexico as a tourist.

If you lose your Resident Card while away you should go to the nearest consulate. Most Mexican consulate's have INM officers on site.

Thanks for the suggestion absoluteAl. We sent an email to the immigration people and they said to just explain to the officer at immigration when he presents his passport and residency card. I’ll update this post when we actually get to Mexico and let you know how it went.

Lost form update

FYI we arrived at terminal 4 in Cancun and explained the lost form (my husband filled one out in the plane) and they said no problem and took the new form and we were done. Very easy. We used the line for Micicans with no problem which we have had trouble doing in terminal 2.
