      Our photographer was from Monterrey, Mexico and he didn't require any work permits, but I don't know if that is because he was in the Country already?? The bonus for us was that his travel fees were soooo reasonable compared to what we would have paid if our photographer was coming from further away! It was perfect!

        We are bringing a photog with us but he is also a wedding guest... We are not getting a permit - if they are a friend just taking pics, I can't see a permit being needed... we will also be using the resort photog as it is part of our package.

          I'm in the same situation as Jenn, my photog is on my wedding list. He's actually a really good friend of ours who volunteered to do it.

            Hi Courtney,

            Do you mean a work permit to work in Mexico? Or something like a permit from Las Caletas to allow an outside photographer into their resort?

              Yes a Work permit to work in Mexico? My photog was asking about it. On caletas i was told you can bring in your own or use one they recommend... We were told to check with the consolate (sorry bout the sp)

                This comes from my hubby who has double citizenship (US-MX) and has worked with US nationals working temporarily in Mexico for years: By law anybody is required to get a work permit if performing work in Mexico even for one day. You can request more info at your closest Mexican consulate in the US.

                However...in reality...in the photography world practically nobody ever obtains such a permit... :-)

                What I would do is ask your contact at Las Caletas (is it still Nicole?) about this. I don't see it happening but I would like to avoid a "ahi viene la migra!" type of situation... YKWIM? :-)
