The information I posted is a new option relating to long expired visitors visas originally issued in 2019. This is quite specific.. you have long overstayed your visitors visa, possibly due to COVID... now you have options.
There are dozens of situations, most addressed in the links or on the INM page or on the consulate's web pages.
Another relatively new option is the ability to renew a 4 year temporal AFTER it's expiration through a process also known as regularization, without having to do a consulate visit. You cannot do this before your temporal is about to expire near the end of it's 4 year term because there is no provision in law to do so. So you go in and renew after it expires and you gone 'irregular'.. first for a 1 year then for another 3 years. A few folks do this instead of going permanente because they are married to their wheels and want to keep them on a valid TIP. I understand you can also do this at a consulate if you are out of Mexico, but the time limitations are a bit different. 55 days instead of 60 from the expiry.. or maybe it's vice versa.. anyway you have some time.
Going Permanente from temporal during the 30 day window before expiration is way less hassle though; so long as you are still in Mexico during the 30 days before RT expiration.
