They will not do By Sea they said use internet only to get By Sea3-24-14
Internet is the only way to get Fmm I was just at Otay and San Ysidro they stopped giving them out at the INM office 3-24-14
This is the only way to get FMM now San Ysidro 3-24-14 THE INM BUILDING WILL NOT GIVE YOU BY SEA FMM They said use the above info to get FMM.
Or take your boat to Ensenada, stay at the Coral for a few days and get fmms from the port captain.
very helpful and pleasant on the phone....knew exactly what we need.
30 min. (and $160) later, I guess I am legal. (once the app is approved).
As of 3-24-14 Boarders Otay and SanYsidro will not sell Fmm for our fishing.Follow MYNomad post and use all capslock press English also upper right
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.
Ali, if ya dont mind, what is the correct entry for column C, "Dealership or Maritime agency" ??
It is one of the mandatory entries... I just put "privately owned", but don't want to get kicked out on a technicality.
Just to be clear:
Do you FIRST have to go to this page https://www.banjercito.com.mx/registroEmbarques/ and PAY before you can fill out the Manifest for you and the passengers???
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.
Thanks for the update, I appreciate Your efforts and thanks for all You do.
One of the main reasons I applied for this job was to give us a voice. It's my honor to represent.
'Atta Boy, Sherm...a multiple entry visa would be fabulous....
Thanks for taking this on.
One more boater appreciates your service
"DMV to Open New San Jose Office for Undocumented Immigrants Seeking Driver's Licenses..."
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?
