Hello everyone -

 

I am hoping someone can help me, my resort (The Azul Fives by Karisma) wants my photographer to have a Mexican Work Permit - does anyone know where I go to obtain this or which form I need or what it entails? My TA doesnt seem to know...

 

Thanks for any and all help!

Great question - hopefully someone will have encountered this...

 

We are bringing a photog with us but are also using the one that was included for free in our package... I think we will just say that the photog we are bringing is a friend of ours and a wedding guest...

Hi Erinne and Jenn,

 

What I would do is go or have my photographer go to the closest Mexican Consulate and ask or file for the permit.

 

We did some research for you and found the list of consulates on the Mexican Government website: Directorio Consulados -SRE

 

This is the Mexican Government website that regulates this:

Ministry of Foreign Affairs

 

My honey speaks spanish and we live in Mexico. In case you need further direction PM me or have your photographers e-mail me directly and we will help.

No if he/she is not being hired to do the job. As long as the photographer is working and is receiving compensation for the job then a permit is needed.

 

What tons of people try to do is "smuggle" the photographer into their weddings saying that they are family members. But the immigration people is like the cops, they can "smell" if there is trouble going on.

 

Everybody is different, so everybody can take different levels of risk. Also, every location has different immigration people working on the area. What I would do is talk to my venue or wedding coordinator and see what their recommendation is. They would know if they get supervised or not and the level of supervision they get.

 

In case they recommended getting the Work Permit just call or go to the closes Mexican Consulate in your area and ask about it. Maybe the photographer could even apply and get the permit upon arrival into Mexico.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
