How do I get a visa for México?
There are three kinds of visas – FMT, FM2 and FM3 (actually there are more, but these three are all we are interested in.)

If you require more than 180 days, you will have the leave the country and re-enter with a new FMT good for another 180… Continue

He could have gone to the IMSS hospital and had it all done there - but we decided that we would use the IMSS only in… Continue
