What to do if you have an EMERGENCY and must leave Mexico while your CANJE, RENEWAL or CHANGE OF CONDITION procedure is in process. As you may know, if you want or need to leave Mexico during an INM process, you will have to get an EXIT and RE-ENTER permit to leave the country. As a general rule, this process takes four (4) business days to be ready. Many clients ask me the same question, as procedures in this part of Mexico – Playa del Carmen and Cancun – are talking between four (4) and five (5) months to be completed. What should I do if I have an emergency and I have to leave Mexico in a hurry? MIGRATION TO MEXICO experienced this situation three times in the last few months. The answer is the following: You have to go to the INM office with all the paperwork to do the exit and re-enter permit ready and ask an authority if you can get the permit the same day or the following day, at the most. It is essential to bring a written proof from a doctor (serious illness, surgery, death of a primary relative), and you may receive the permission to get the exit permit faster than usual.
