Who is this for?

This site is for any foreigners living in Mexico, who wish to become naturalized citizens of Mexico. There are several categories under which you can do this, but in all cases you must have legally resided in Mexico for at least 2-5 years.

If you are thinking about applying for citizenship, we recommend that you begin preparing and studying well before you intend to take the exam. You must have at least an intermediate level of Spanish, and a good general understanding of Mexican history and culture.

If this sounds like you, and you are ready to take the next step and become a citizen of your adopted country, then we will help you to achieve this goal.

How to use this site?

We recommend that you start by reading A New Compact History of Mexico, or other books that cover general Mexican history, from pre-hispanic times to the present. There are also some great video resources to help you get oriented with the general timelines that you may only be vaguely familiar with. One great source is the lecture series from the Great Courses, Maya to Aztec: Ancient Mesoamerica Revealed.

Once you have a good general understanding, Quiero ser mexicano can help you to memorize the important dates, names, locations, timelines and other information that you may be tested on, which inevitably require rote memorization.

Quiero ser mexicano will help you to memorize this information, keep the details straight in your mind, and prepare you to pass the exam on your first try!
