The photo that MYNomad posted is where we went. Unfortunately the guy we delt with was adamant about checking the "land" box. We also had to walk around the corner (40' +/-) to pay with dollars.
They will not do By Sea they said use internet only to get By Sea3-24-14

It started out as an internet process but they didn't mail the physical document. The mex navy required you to have an actual FMM on your person, receipt was not enough. So, HAS ANYONE RECEIVED A FMM FROM THEM?

All you need is the print out and manifest. There is nothing mailed to you.

It is one of the mandatory entries... I just put "privately owned", but don't want to get kicked out on a technicality.

Let's be clear about the long term visas. They can be purchased for up to (I think) 180 days but that is for 180 days in Mexico. It is not for multiple entries into Mexico. I recently met with the commissioner of immigration in Mexico city. Mayor Kevin Faulconer and the Lieutenant Govenor Gavin Newsom were with me. We were promised by the commissioner that there would be a multiple entry visa in place within the next two to three months. This would be a big win for the fishing community and tourists as a whole. A visa that is good for multiple entries would solve most of our problems.

From that meeting I went and spoke in front of the Mexican senate about multiple entry visas and the good will that would cause between the U.S.and Mexico and promote better relations. The speech was well received and I am very confidant that we will have this visa issue solved very soon.

One of the main reasons I applied for this job was to give us a voice. It's my honor to represent.

something is seriously wrong here...


I think its time we all boat up and make a protest floatilla sail around the coronados and san diego bay...
What do you think would cause a change to the current policies of access to fishing areas in Mexican waters?

I am sure you are joking, but everyone should be aware that Americans have no right to protest in Mexico -- it is a criminal offense under their law and may well get you arrested. Similar to its very restrictive gun laws, freedom of speech is tightly controlled as a means to prevent revolution.

actually I'm not...how about parking the boats in front of the mexican consulate; I see a great desparity as to how access is given to certain groups and restricted from others...when the U.S. ever talks about tightening up border security the Mexican Govt. has a shit fit...nothing is going to happen until some negative effect is felt by someone who is in a position to make changes...I appreciate Councilman Sherman bringing the issue up, but at this point I'm unconvinced anything is going to change anytime soon - hope I'm wrong...what are your suggestions?
