The National Migration Institute (INM) created the Repatriation Program with the purpose of achieving the reintegration of the Mexican population that returns to the country from Canada and the United States.
The INM and the Repatriation Program collaborate with different government agencies, so that in the short term the returnees develop their skills and gain access to the productive market.
The INM has 11 Repatriation Modules in five of the northern border states. In Baja California, one is located in Tijuana and the other in Mexicali. In Sonora there are also two modules, in San Luis Río Colorado and in Nogales. In Chihuahua, the modules are located in Ciudad Juárez and Ojinaga. In Coahuila, for their part, they are established in Ciudad Acuña and Piedras Negras. In the state of Tamaulipas there are three modules, in Matamoros, Nuevo Laredo and Reynosa.
Through these modules, migrants returning from the United States and Canada are supported to encourage their inclusion in the programs that the government offers for their benefit. The benefits promoted by the government are: access to health services, including mental health care; access to employment, right to identity; revalidation of studies; certification of your skills and abilities; access to financial services; legal orientation; advice on migration issues with the Ministry of Foreign Relations, among others.
If you return to another non-border state, you can seek support at the representative offices of the Repatriation Program in any state in the country. Check the link information for your state and get in touch:
