Corporate Guidance

To establish a corporation, foreigners must have an FM-3. If you do not have an FM-3, another option is to purchase shares in an existing Mexican corporation, which you can then use to file for an FM-3.

A Mexican corporation is a Mexican entity, even if the stockholders are all foreigners. There can be as few as two stockholders. Certain documents are required, such as bank statements, passport or visa and photos.
