Mexico has amazing food, great communities, fantastic nightlife, parks, and lots of events. There are so many things to do in Mexico, road trips to take along the country, things are cheaper and the weather is great.
Why are you relocating to Mexico?
Do you want to live in an expat town? Are you looking for retirement communities in Mexico? Are you looking more for a laid-back beach town? Do you want a place with local vibes that is very different from home? Do you want a bustling city?
You need to know the answer to that question, to understand what to expect from Mexico.
PAPER WORK & VISAS FOR MEXICO
MAKE SURE YOU CAN AFFORD COST OF LIVING IN MEXICO – Yes, living in Mexico is much cheaper than in the US or Canada, but you still need to be sure that you can afford to live there.
The cost of living in Mexico can vary a lot. It varies from $500 to a few thousand a month.
JOB – If you are a digital nomad and you work on your own or you are a freelancer – PERFECT, but if you want to move to Mexico and start working there you need FM3 – temporary residence. All in all, it shouldn’t be too difficult to find a job in Mexico, especially if you’re bilingual in Spanish. If you do find a job, it’ll be much easier to get an FM2 Immigrant Visa.
GET A PLACE TO LIVE IN MEXICO -I suggest you before renting an apartment for a long term to find an apartment for a few weeks, to understand if you like the area or you want to find something different. The best places to find an apartment in Mexico are: Facebook marketplace, AirBnB, VRBO, CRAIGSLIST and talk to locals.
HEALTHCARE – Healthcare in Mexico is privatized. Most people in Mexico choose to carry personal health insurance, which can save you from massive bills if you get sick or in an accident. While finding a doctor is as easy as a quick Google search, finding an English-speaking doctor can be a challenge.
LEARN THE LANGUAGE – I see more and more digital nomads and expats moving to places without speaking a word in the local language. In Mexico you will need Spanish to navigate your life. You can survive without Spanish in some towns, but it’s not going to be the same if you know language. I started to learn Spanish before I moved to Mexico.
DO NOT BE LONELY. MAKE FRIENDS AND GET IN TOUCH WITH OTHER EXPATS IN MEXICO.
BUYING A CAR IN MEXICO – You can buy a car in Mexico without residency, but you cannot register it under your name. While you wait for your pending residency you could buy a used car and insure it. Then register it once you can. Registering a car is simple and easy and people are very helpful.
IMPORTING PETS – Mexico is super easy when it comes to importing basic pets. It’s very simple if you have their pet documents in order.
BRINGING CHILDREN – Mexico is one of the easiest countries to move into with children. Doctors are great and you can easily and cheaply take them to a specialist or dentist. There are babysitting agencies and prices vary from 5 USD per hour to 10 USD per hour. Daycare options are endless. You can find bilingual daycares and preschool or just regular Spanish-speaking ones. You might as well give your child an opportunity to pick up Spanish effortlessly.
