Immigration Law



There are a number of reasons because a foreign visitor needs to enter to Mexico. Foreigners wishing to do so must do it with an administrative authorization or Visa which is granted based on the activities that the foreigner will perform while in Mexico along with his immigration status for which he applies.


The Immigration Services department of HAVA has developed integral consulting legal services specialized in migratory issues both for corporations and individuals.  We assist our clients with a top level, high quality legal representation and assistance while we dedicate full time to solve their legal and migratory issues.

Services for corporations

HAVA provides immigration services for multinational companies, which require the presence of foreigners in Mexico to develop their projects, with all the necessary and properly enabled resources to orientate and support the needs of the company and their foreign employees.

The purpose of our legal advice is to help to obtain a work visa or a legal permit that allows the foreigner employee and his family in a given case, to legally enter to Mexico with an specifically authorized activity, while, at the same time we offer to the company the legal security for the requirement or project that the company needs in connection with his foreign employee.

Our corporate clients notice a cost benefit advantage when hiring our immigration services, since their immigration matters are not left in inexperienced hands and they avoid having to make repeated visits to the immigration office, standing in line and dealing with the bureaucracy and extensive paperwork involved in acquiring the immigration documents for their employees, while they save a substantial amount of time, especially when the immigration application is complex.

Services for individuals

Any foreign visitor may apply for a Mexican Visa directly, in person, or by hiring a professional immigration lawyer in Mexico who can handle not only the paperwork and administration on his behalf but also who can advise the visitor which visa may be right for him according to his personal circumstances or letting him to know if it is not possible to obtain it.

In HAVA, we have the experience and resources to help individuals during the application processes for authorizations and permits for persons seeking to visit Mexico for leisure, for retirement, for living, working as well as those seeking permanent residence in Mexico or Mexican Citizenship.




We are constantly able to assess each client individual circumstances and suggest an appropriate course of action, based on his personal conditions and needs, while we keep constant communication and assistance with our clients regarding all matters and actions that need to be handled into account for the assurance of their visa granting.
