New Mexican Foreign Worker's Policy??? what?

Recommended Posts

I am not sure, but I think this is a fee the photographer would have to pay, not you. I remember my photographer had to claim her equipment in customs, and since she told them she was entering the country to work, they taxed her (since she was making money in their country). I think it was something like that. She porbably didn't have to admit to it, but she wanted to cover herself just incase.

Valeria has sent me several emails on this--- evidently the resort has been sanctioned for not going by the regulations in the past......

 

Hi Shannon,

 

Perfect, please remember they should present to the On site wedding coordinator the legal paperwork, provided by the Mexican Government in order to provide this services, is called in Spanish (RFC)

 

This is important since the Hotel has been sanctioned for not paying taxes for this outsider providers services.

 

thanks.-

 

If any doubt arises, please, do not hesitate to contact me, I will be more than happy to assist you.

 

 

 

Sincerely Yours,

Do you know what exactly the legal paperwork that they have to present is?

Ok - so Claudia is based in Mexico, I believe, but I received this email from Monica today:

 

"Also, Claudia will have to show a copy of her "RFC" upon arrival to the hotel (this are their working documents in order to declare taxes); I apologize for the inconveniences this may cause you, unfortunately this are new Hotel & Mexican Government policies, the hotel has been sanctioned for permitting professional foreigner photographers working at the Hotel, with no working permission from the Government, and for this reason they are asking these requirements."

So not only do we have to pay $500, + day passes for the photographer and each assistant, + costs for any private meals, the photographers ALSO need to pay the resort? This is absolutely ridiculous. If I had to start this process all over again, I think I should have picked Dreams or another resort.....we'll see after I get back, but right now, I'm still pretty upset with the resort.

If this is government related, wouldn't this apply to all resorts in Mexico?

This makes me think it is just a way for the resort to scare you into paying their fees. I honestly think I would gone on if I hadn't received this email from her.

I'm sorry you have to go thru this. Why would the photogs have to pay the rest? I am sorry if I missed it. I would tell EDR that you are not paying any of these additional fees. You are already paying the $500, what is that for anyway?

I think this is a good point to make. EDR is a beautiful hotel, but if they are not treating photographers & brides right, people should consider other options. I wouldn't care if I had to use the same flowers/ cake/ DJ as everyone else. But, photography is not one-size-fits all. People should have the choice to pick someone that matches their style & personality. Restricting you to just their hotel photographer is too limiting. I feel like brides should stand up to EDR & tell them they will just book elsewhere. When anyone picks a hotel other than EDR because of this reason, they should let them know.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
