The American Friends Service Committee explains a series of steps related to voluntary return to Mexico from the United States.
The American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) suggests Mexican immigrants to have a plan if any or all family members must return to Mexico either in case of deportation or voluntarily.
If you have time, the AFSC suggests going to the nearest Mexican consulate to obtain your passport. If you do not have it, you can make an appointment by clicking here. Or by calling the following number 1-877-639-4835. Check the requirements on the same website. In the same way, you can make an appointment to get your voter credential.
It is also necessary that you have your CURP, the identification number for citizens or residents of Mexico. Get it here.
Remember that it is important to consult with an immigration expert before signing any type of document.
The AFSC recommends that you sign and grant power of attorney to someone you trust in the United States, so that they can handle your financial affairs once you leave the country.
Remember to take care of your finances, try to sell or transfer your home, and transfer the funds correctly from the US to Mexico.
Consider making calls and making arrangements to find out where you will arrive in Mexico, and keep in touch with your legal representative.
If you are a relative of a person who will return to Mexico, take into account the preparation plan. You can carry out the same procedures, such as obtaining the voter's credential, CURP, Mexican passport, and proof of dual citizenship in the case of the children of Mexican parents born in the US The dual citizenship process can be done at any Mexican consulate.
