Traveling to Mexico with GC

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My work is going to send me to Mexico for a week. I will be traveling to Mexico during the day and return to the states (El Paso, tx) to stay because it is safer. I am a GC holder and I have a british passport. My passport does not require visa to travel to Mexico. When I return to the states each time during these several nights, will they stamp my passport each time?

Is my passport and GC are the only thing they will need to inspect in US custum?? Anything else I will need.

I have been told I need to fill in the FNM form when I am in Mexico immigration.

anything else I am missing?!?!

Thank you!!!

You do not need the passport...GC only for Mexico, Canada and Carribean islands. You don't believe me so you will take your passport anyway. You won't need it. I live right next to Canada and go there often, (several times in a week or even more than once in a day sometimes) my wife does also and never shows anything but her green card. She doesn't even take her passport along.

Si man -- green card only, for you, and my U.S. passport has never been stamped on any visit to or from Mexico (it's swiped through the U.S. Customs passport-reader system).

When you attempt to re-enter at El Paso, you'll be asked what you're bringing back, what you were doing in Mexico, etc. Answer truthfully and maintain good eye contact with the CBP officers. Before your trip, go to http://www.cbp.gov and review the list of prohibited items, limited items, and must-declare items that you might bring back.

If you have any free time, drive almost an hour west of El Paso to Columbus, New Mexico, and visit the little Mexican town called Palomas. It's one of my favo(u)rite border towns. There's outstanding shopping and an excellent restaurant at the "Pink Store": http://www.thepinkstoremexico.com/#


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).
