Exit and reentry permit is for applicants waiting for canje, renewal, or change of status approval by (INM) National Institute Of Immigration. By law, applicants must apply for the exit and reentry permit if they want to leave the country (Mexico) while their application is pending.
Some applicants do not know this rule and make the big mistake of leaving Mexico without an exit and reentry permit. Unfortunately, when they return, their application will be canceled automatically because they will be issued another FMM at the airport or border. By law, they can not have two statuses simultaneously.
The exit and reentry permit is issued by the same INM office where canje, renewal, or change of status is filed. It takes about 3 to 5 days, and the cost is $424.00 in Mexican currency, approximately $28.00 US.
The permit will be valid for 60 days, which means the applicants must return before it expires and continue with their application.
