Your PO most likely is referring to a tourist permit as issued by Mexican immigration.

This is needed when travelling into Mexico, anywhere past the border areas.

It is fairly easy and quick to obtain. Once you schedule an appointment, or walk-in to the Mexican Consulate, you should have no problem obtaining the permit.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
