  1. I followed the link, but lo and behold...it directs you to a SAT office to complete the RFC after a cursory "preregistration with a CURP." Estimado contribuyente para efectos de realizar su trámite de inscripción al RFC, lo invitamos a acudir a cualquiera de las oficinas del SAT, cumpliendo los requisitos previstos en las fichas de trámite contenidas en el Anexo 1-A de la Resolución Miscelánea Fiscal vigente.
  2. You'll need a constancia to receive a factura for any reimbursement or receipt, such as for medical expenses, reimbursement from insurance companies, to open or update banking information, to open a line of credit, for a utility. In addition to CFE, Telmex wanted a copy, as did BBVA, Multiva, auto and medical insurance providers.
  3. EDITED TO UPDATE: THIS HAS BEEN TERMINATED BY INM FOR ALL US TOURISTS ENTERING BY AIR. From the INM website (https://www.gob.mx/.../forma-migratoria-multiple-digital...), the FMMd is no longer required for US tourists entering or exiting Mexico: just save your ticket and present with your passport upon departure, in case you are asked for it. Si ingresas vía área, no tendrás que llenar la Forma Migratoria Múltiple Vía Electrónica (FMMe), ni la Forma Migratoria Múltiple de manera tradicional. El Instituto Nacional de Migración omitirá la expedición de la Forma Migratoria Múltiple de manera física para aquellos extranjeros que ingresen a México vía aérea. As of last night, this INM process has not yet arrived to Grupo aeroportuario del Pacífico (GAP, the conglomerate of airports to which GDL belongs.) Grupo aeroportuario del sureste, which administers Cancún, and that of CDMX typically introduce changes to the systems prior to them filtering to Guadalajara. Hopefully, some day....for now; passport and residency card are what you need to leave and to return.
  4. There's a brand new Farmacias Similares in SJC with a doctor. I believe he leaves for lunch between 2-4 pm daily.
  5. CiBanco is the only one I know of: https://www.cibanco.com/es/cibanco/tarjeta-multidivisa-cicash-multicurrency
  6. 55 5781 4157 is their tel number in Zapopan; also WhatsApp.
  7. On Friday, $8800 cash (all inclusive, except for the prep which you get at your farmacia, cost of about $600) plus $500 per polyp biopsied. Doctor and anesthesiologist came from Guadalajara. You get a receipt for cash from the hospital; the actual bll/payment info is received from your doctor when results are received, in about a week.
  8. El Parián de Tlaquepaque, the circular venue across from the park. It has some 20 cantinas surrounding a round stage at which mariachis perform.
  9. All I mentioned are after security, upstairs. Go thru the Duty Free security exit, make a hard left and continue down the hallway. You'll pass, in order, Starbucks, Chili's, Priority Club access, Krispy Kreme, then a couple of restaurants, and another Starbucks.
  10. On the second floor, towards the far left end of the terminal (where many Volaris flights depart) and near the Starbucks and Krispy Kreme is a sit-down restaurant that opens very early and serves a full-menu Mexican-style breakfast with egg options, among others. Have eaten there several times. The Chili's is open 24 hrs. Also, if you are a Priority Club member, the lounge also serves breakfast.
  11. As do Mexican birth certificates and other official documents, a Constancia de situación fiscal absolutely DOES have an expiration date. It is good for 30 days from the date that appears on the form, and that date is printed, top right in a box, of page one of the two-page Constancia. This is why the papelerías are problematic: you don't get your own password to enter the system and then you cannot reprint. When you need a copy, all you have to do is logon to your SAT account with your id and password and reprint and reprint as needed.
  12. I completed the constancias online for three friends in the past two weeks; all approved. Takes a few days between the two steps.
  13. The new 2023 anti-smoking law goes into effect today all over Mexico: no smoking in public places, even if they previously offered designated areas for smokers. Includes arenas, parks, beaches, transportation sites, as well as places where food and drinks are served. Fine is up to 100x minimum daily wage.
  14. Go to the main office in Guadalajara, planning to spend the full day, with copies of the infractions charged against you. There's a specific department where you ask for a copy of the camera capture...and a correspondingly long line. On the copies, you will see the date, time, and license plate of the vehicle involved. Possibly, the manual transfer of the camera infraction was incorrectly posted by person who keyboards the info into the system. This happened in my case. If it's what happened to you, they will complete paperwork to remove the infraction and you will sign it. Ask for a photocopy.
  15. For fun reading, here's the new Jalisco 2022 transit regulations. Changes to current laws are conveniently listed in the front section. For instance, if there is a rear-end collision with no injuries and no damage to public property or to third parties, you can now move your vehicles after following certain steps. That should help ease the delays while affected vehicles await insurance support, etc. https://nuevaleydemovilidad.jalisco.gob.mx/
  16. According to the link I attached, $33 for Cruz Roja, $28 for Hogar Cabañas, then re-calculating for the 10% January payment discount, and it somehow comes out to the increase they quoted over the 2022 cost.
  17. Proposed fees as of this month show an increase of $23, up to $734; you'll earn a 20% discount on annual refrendo if you have had your Verificación Vehicular. https://www.informador.mx/jalisco/Presupuesto-Jalisco-2023-Proponen-aumentar-23-pesos-el-refrendo-vehicular-20221102-0082.html SABER MÁS Así perfilan los aumentos en cobros para 2023
  18. Correct: AMLO's proposed federal vehicle inspection was rescinded; however, the Jalisco state emissions inspection is very much alive. I went for my (second) annual Verificación Responsable yesterday, in Ocotlán, and asked if we whose vehicles are registered and garaged here at Lakeside are included in the mandatory testing, as contradictory information is circulating. They confirmed that our area is included, and their understanding is that fines will begin sometime in 2023 as the area is close to reaching the 80 inspection lanes that is the cutoff. They also confirmed that foreign-plated vehicles (USA and Canada) who are garaged in Jalisco to area residents must comply with the emissions testing. To complete the online appointment for foreign cars, they said to make up a current -year date for the tarjeta de circulación receipt and tarjeta number and they will adjust these when you present your documents for review at the inspection station. Or, one can phone the call center number and they will make the appointment for you and email the document to take to Recaudadora or the bank for payment. According to Governor Alfaro, documentation of inspection also provides a 10% discount in our upcoming annual vehicle registration. We were in and out in 20 minutes yesterday morning, including time for the above questions.
  19. This is because the group of airports to which GDL belongs (Grupo aeroportuario del Pacífico) is not on the system to take the electronic FMM, which is only for tourists (not residents nor Canje). Incoming flights to GDL have not been asking for the form for several weeks now, instead stamping the incoming passenger's passport with an "E" (for Entrada) seal and handwriting in the number of days given for legal stay in México.
  20. I get USA NHL Network HD (60 channels) and USA NHL Network ALT HD. For Canada, I'd venture it would be under the local channels' programming? I don't see a CFL channel. I have Spotify for music.
  21. I suspended my service in September and disconnected my receivers, so I can't get on to check for you. Perhaps someone else cam check their package for you?
  22. Me, too. You may want to check with your supplier or, if you are able, with Shaw directly and post here. For the last year or so, we also are using firesticks; our service on all devices is 1/4 of my monthly Shaw bill. So far, no issues, although we have changed providers 3 x, and now are pretty much buffer-free.
  23. Just FYI, I just put my Shaw account on hold while I try out a (new to me) streaming service. My (Canada-based) supplier said that the 600-series receivers are being discontinued, and that after February 2023 I'd no longer be able to use them to access Shaw here. If that holds true, lots of us will be looking for other tv options come February.
  24. The process has recently been simplified. By air, flying into Guadalajara, officials no longer ask for the FMM form upon arrival into Mexico. Your friends, however, will be asked for the flight number, so they need to know that information and give it to the INM agent, who will then stamp and initial their passports upon the return.
