In order to obtain Mexican citizenship, there is no fee. It is free unless you want additional copies of the certificate they will give you, which would be $12 each. To start you must go to the Mexican consulate website and you must fill out the forms and mail them in with proof of your birth and your parents citizenship. They will call you and let you know if anything is missing and eventually you will have to go to an appointment at the consulate and take all the original documents and they will give you the certificate there. It takes a few weeks for this process.

Good luck to you and I hope this answer has helped you.

Please kindly click "Finish by RATING" and choose a rating from the STARS ★★★★★. The question will NOT finish or close after you click and rate me. DON'T WORRY. It will stay OPEN after you rate me and I can continue to answer your follow up questions at no additional charge, if you have any.

The stars are very important. If you don't RATE , I receive zero credit for my time with you. Hopefully you can rate me 3 stars or more. 5 stars rating is the best!

Again, if you have additional follow up questions for me, please ask and I will be happy to clarify. Your satisfaction is my #1 goal.
