Re: FM3 question...

There is a difference of opinion here that hopefully someone can clarify. Last year we paid the fee at immigration at the airport before leaving the country and handed the document back in upon our re-entry to Mexico. That re-entry date was stamped in our FM3, and we thought, as Donna pointed out, that we had 30 days to renew AFTER the expiry date. Not so, one day late after the expiry date is late. We argued this with no success.

So here are good questions:

What is an FM3 holder required to do when he/she leaves the country and returns before the expiry date of the FM3?

When is "late" for renewing an FM3?

What happens if your FM3 expires while out of Mexico?
