INM begins system update to accept debit and credit cards

Mexico City, Mexico — The National Institute of Migration (INM) has begun the transition that will allow people to pay with debit and credit cards. As of June 1, immigration procedures in Mexico City can be paid for using national or international debit and credit cards.

In a statement, the Instituto Nacional de Migración (INM) says the plastic card payment option only works with Visa or Mastercard and that anyone using this payment method will need to produce identification to prove ownership of the card.

The federal agency says that the technological modernization will be progressively implemented in INM offices across all 32 states and is the result of a modernization policy. The agency did not specify as to how long before all of their INM systems will be modernized to accept plastic card payments, nor did they provide any order of possibly prioritizing states.
