Mexico Work Permit for Photographer?!
Posted 30 December 2008 - 11:50 AM
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!

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...

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

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.
