Cancun, the Mexican paradise known for its pristine beaches and wild nightlife, is experiencing an unexpected influx of foreigners seeking job opportunities. The General Director of Economic Development, Enrique Morales Pardo, revealed that the number of job applications from foreign residents has skyrocketed. In 2023 alone, the city received an impressive eight to ten applications per month, compared to the meager five to six in the years leading up to the pandemic. That's quite the leap!
From January to May, a whopping 40 to 50 permanent residents applied for jobs, but unfortunately, their foreign status complicates matters. You see, these folks don't possess the coveted naturalization document required by several companies. Talk about a Catch-22! To shed light on this issue, Morales Pardo disclosed that the naturalization letter can only be obtained after four years of residency, be it as a refugee or permanent resident. Hang in there, folks!
