    Why Move to Mexico?

    Mexico blends century-old traditions and customs with contemporary lifestyles. You can relax on one of Mexico’s glorious beaches by day and dine out in hipster-style cantinas by night.

    At the same time you can enjoy the luxury of home comforts such as TV, internet and modern home appliances – because few of us can survive without a microwave!
    The sun kissed beaches of the Riviera Maya have become popular haunts for expat retirees.

    However, as one of the strongest emerging economies in Latin America, the larger cities of Mexico City and Merida also offer plenty of working opportunities.

    Highlights of living in Mexico include:

    A dynamic Spanish speaking nation with its own distinct customs and cuisine – Mexican cuisine varies by region, common dishes include corn tortillas, tacos and tortas, a Mexican sandwich.

    Friendly and welcoming locals and despite the hype, the crime rate is actually quite low.

    Living in Mexico is ideal for budget-conscious expats. The cost of living in Mexico is very cheap, which means that expats living there can enjoy a lavish and easy-going lifestyle.

    A stunning natural landscape, from mountains and canyons to sweeping deserts and rainforests. Tulum beach, just south of Cancun has been voted the world’s most beautiful beach.

    Retirement visas are easy to obtain from the Mexican Embassy in your home country and the pathway to permanent residency is straightforward.

    Working in Mexico

    To work in Mexico you will need to apply for a work permit or visa from the Mexican Embassy in London before you travel.

    You’ll need to already have a job offer from a company registered in Mexico to apply for the visa.

    There are two types:

    • a Temporary Resident Visa which allows expats stay in Mexico for one year and continually re-apply for one-year extensions.
    • a Permanent Resident Visa – this visa needs no extensions and is for expats who plan to live in the country permanently.

    Demand for certain occupations are on the rise and highly skilled expats are welcome. In particular, teachers of English are sought after, as are those qualified in the technical or scientific professions.

    Schools in Mexico

    The public school system in Mexico is overseen by the Secretariat of Public Instruction and attendance is mandatory for all students aged between 6 and 15.

    Although standards are improving steadily, they are still low compared to the UK. A high proportion of students leave school before they have completed their education. This is mainly due to the fact that many local children need to work to help support their families, especially in more rural areas.

    Most expats moving to Mexico will send their children to private and international schools. According to the country’s Public Education Board, about 13 percent of all students attend private schools.

    Healthcare in Mexico

    Healthcare is improving but is generally still far below the standards you would expect in Britain.

    The Instituto Mexicano de Seguro Social (IMSS) provides both Mexican citizens and expats legally residing in Mexico with medical insurance and healthcare services.

    Private health insurance is advisable for all expats intending to live in the UK for quite some time. You will need to ensure that your package covers the cost of emergency evacuation and repatriation to your home country.

    Do your research thoroughly before you arrive to find out which healthcare provider has the best combination of benefits and premiums for you and your family.

    For more information on selecting a healthcare provider in Mexico read this excellent blog post from money transfer site, TransferWise.

    Property in Mexico

    House prices are expected to be weak for the remainder of 2018/19, given low confidence, the uncertainty about U.S. economic policies, and tightening monetary policy.

    Property prices are far cheaper than in the UK and US, but exact costs will vary largely depending on where you are staying, and what your requirements are.

    Under the current system of Fideicomiso, foreigners can only indirectly own real estate by setting up bank trusts.

    For those looking to enter the housing market the country has a lot to offer property investors. As with all property investments, you’ll need to do your homework first and enlist the services of a recommended real estate agent.

    The current average price per square meter to buy a one bedroomed apartment in the city is MXN 22,017 (£845) and on the outskirts it is MXN 14,816 (£569).

    If you intend to rent initially, it is important to note that the rental market in Mexico is generally unregulated. This means that landlords can raise rents at a moment’s notice and tenants have to pay up or leave.

    Rental costs are however very cheap. As an example, a one bedroomed apartment in a large city would cost approximately MXN 5786 (£222) per month and outside the city the cost drops to MXN 3862 (£148).

    Travelling Around Mexico

    Public transport in Mexico is very inexpensive, but it can prove daunting if you don’t speak any Spanish.

    Busses and mini-busses are a cheap way to get around, but you need to make sure you have change with you as you pay when getting onto the vehicles.

    Two of Mexico’s cities—Mexico City and Monterrey—have Metro systems in operation. The Metro can be one of the most cost effective and fastest methods of travel across the cities.

    Mexico has invested heavily in road infrastructure in recent times which has made getting around by car and safer than ever before.

    It is possible for expats to drive in Mexico provided you have a valid driving licence from your home country.

    Be aware of toll roads and carry plenty of cash as booths do not accept cash. If you haven’t driven in Mexico before take some time to get used to the roads as all signs are in Spanish and the etiquette differs significantly from the UK.

    Local Currency

    The official currency in Mexico is the Mexican Peso (MXN) and is commonly referred to simply as the peso. One peso can be divided into 100 centavos.

    Some places close to the US border will accept US dollars but it is not advisable to rely on this currency as rates can be steep once converted.

    Mexican banks offer most services of a modern bank such as checking and savings accounts, certificates of deposit, joint accounts, ATMs, mortgages and insurance.

    To open a straightforward checking or deposit account for yourself or a family member you will need some form of valid identification such as a passport or driving licence, as well as proof of your address, typically a utility bill.
