Entry Visa

It is required by law to all students studying in Mexico for more than 2 months to obtain a FM3 student visa. Summer internships, even if they are for less than 2 months, will also require a student visa. Students studying in Mexico for 2 months or less can do it only with a Tourist Visa. It is acceptable for some nationalities to enter Mexico with a tourist visa and then change it in Mexico to a FM3 student visa. The International Office at Campus Monterrey will help you understand and solve your doubts about Immigration procedures. However, it is recommended that you hire a professional legal firm to get your visa. The International Office will recommend some legal firms that can help you do this process.

As an international student, you are asked to bring with you the following documents:

  • A valid passport.A student visa (FM3) or a tourist visa (FMT) depending on the case.
  • Proof of financial solvency, such as credit or debit card statements for the cards you will use while in Mexico.Important: Even if you have obtained a student visa at the Mexican Consulate or Embassy in your country, you will still need to register it at the National Immigration Institute in Monterrey .
  • For cost about this procedure (changing or registering a student visa), please refer to the cost section of this web.Your acceptance package will include details of the costs of obtaining or registering a visa in Mexico .

In addition, you will receive more information on how to apply for a visa during the Orientation Session after your arrival to Tecnologico de Monterrey.
