New Immigration Law Update - Southern Baja Legal Services / LEXSUR Group would like to thank everyone that attended our 1st Immigration Seminar in TS. For those who've attended or met me/the team, you probably know by now that our teams' effort has been to keep-up with all the ongoing changes with this New Immigration Law that kicked-in this past Nov. 9th, one goal is to understand the difference between the Old vs the New Mexican Immigration Law so we could then pass-on/share the information with you. Unfortunately, we had to postpone our 2nd meeting until further notice, because up-until this past Friday lots of Immigration related info had not been publicly made available or at least confirmed by the INM staff.

E.g. The first piece of information that I think you all need to know is what your current visa (under the old law) such as: a Tourist Card, FM3, FM2 or Inmigrado, is now equivalent to as of Nov. 9th (under the new law) either a: visitor, temporary or permanent resident thus, allowing you to easily identify what type of process you'll have to do based on your current status.

To assist you, we have put together our English version of the Immigration Visa Equivalence Chart, which was uploaded onto the INM site this past Friday. For the chart and more information on the new law, you can visit our website: www.lexsur.com. Enjoy! - Francisco Gonzalez, francisco [- at -] lexsur.com, 612-122-5529, La Paz

Veterinary Hospital In La Paz. - My dog was recently diagnosed with an "inoperable"tumor by 2 vets. I was recommended by a friend, who had been a Professor in the Vets department at UC Davis, that Dr. Gabriel Meza Leon of Dogtor House in La Paz was one of the best surgeons she had worked with, and if anyone could do it he could. A six-hour surgery with gas and epidural later, she is home and recovering.

He has a fully equipped hospital facility, with Ultra sound, X Ray equipment and 5 trained vets and a full time anesthesiologist on staff. Night staff for post op care. I can't recommend him more highly. The post op care has been superb. Last but not least all the prices for every procedure are displayed on the wall in the waiting room. Same prices for everyone Gringo and Mexicans. A real find. Dr. Gabriel Meza Leon 612-122-1623. Calle Ignacio Ramirez 1650. - Jenny Armit, Baja California Sur
