On a 180 visa, will be going to consulate to start visa process,since we will be traveling during hurricane season,what would happen if we could not fly out because of weather issues , therefore might make our tourist visa expire, would immigration consider some sort of extension, this would be a circumstance we could not control. Would their be some sort of penalty or fines? Thanks for any help

If it is weather related, they may give you a break.  However, you may have to pay for a new visa, same as if you lost it.


The will want to see your original ticket showing the departure date.


One other thing to consider, the flights are a lot less now, so it also depends on who you're flying with.  AA still comes in every day.

The most important thing in life is not knowing everything, it's having the phone number of somebody who does!

I'd recommend not cutting it so close that a few days each way will get you in trouble. Unless a hurricane directly damages the airport, a storm will typically shut down travel for only a fairly short time.


As long as you leave Mexico before your 180 days are up, you're good. Once you're in your home country, you need an appointment at the consulate. Once you have your visa for Residente Temporal or Residente Permanente, you have 180 days to re-enter Mexico then 30 days to go to the INM office. 


Is there some reason you can't leave a week before your Visitante visa expires?
