How to Work Remotely in Mexico

The changing way in how we work has led to a major rise in the availability of online work positions that allow you to work from a home office, no matter where that office may be located. While once primarily a vacation property and retirement destination for foreign buyers, Puerto Vallarta is now home to many American and Canadian young professionals, enjoying both the freedom of working online and benefits of the tropical Vallarta lifestyle.

Working remotely can take many forms. Some foreigners teach English online to students in other countries from the home in Mexico. Others are able to transition their current job in their home country to a fully remote workplace. Some work fulltime positions and others work temp positions, freelance or contract work. Working remotely in Mexico not only often gives you the freedom to work with a more flexible schedule, you are also able to make your living in USD or CAN, which stretches further considering the affordable cost of living in Puerto Vallarta.

A common question is if foreigners working remotely in Puerto Vallarta will require a work visa. Simply put, as long as the company that you are working for is located outside of Mexico (i.e., Canada or the USA) and pays you into a Canadian or American bank account in your home country, you are not required to have a work visa to work remotely in Mexico. A tourist visa, a temporary residency visa or a permanent residency visa all allow you to work legally from a home office for a foreign country in Puerto Vallarta.
