I went to the "old" immigration office yesterday and it was open and functioning as far as I could tell; got the papers I needed and instructions.

The only "new" 3 story building I know by the (former) ACE hardware, is/was a medical building. I ddn't see any signs on it and didn't go in.

Maybe there is a transition period between two offices?

Don't know where the "old" office is but the one we've used for the past several years is at #271 Hidalgo, a couple of doors towards Chapala from Delicias restaurant. It has INM signs on the door with off street parking in front of the doors.

The off-street parking is no more. INM had barriers installed in each parking spot so that no one but the INM vehicles can park there. What's up with that? Is this an example of customer service?

It seems to be a thing here in Ajijic that store/restaurant/office owners park their cars in front of their places of business, rather than leaving the spaces open for visitors. Of course, this may also be because there are very few spaces available in their area, and they have to park somewhere! But have you noticed how many businesses have no or little parking nearby? They must assume everybody in town walks or takes the bus!

I think Clueless you have been reading a 3 year old post which was re-enacted just a short while ago.

I think so. Before that, INM came from Guadalajara and set up temporarily at the palacio municipal.

I went for a smog test yesterday and Immigration looks like it is in the same place as always.

I was actually looking at Spencer's post missed the date showing it was posted in 2011.

My error.

Rewind.

Spencer talked about a "new" Immigration office and I didn't notice his post was from 2011. I thought the post was recent and maybe Immigration had taken over the new medical building a few dors away (new and three stories).

As I said, my error.
