We used Bety’s services to renew my dad’s tourist visa–legally–without ever leaving Panajachel. We sent everything to the office via Cargo Expreso and the process was done quickly and efficiently. The staff answered every email and phone call, exceeding our expectations.
I used someone else when I got my residency, and I’ll never make that mistake again. We’ll be using Bety’s services for my dad’s retirement residency.
- Thanks for your excellent review. How much did renewing the tourist visa cost, and how much was shipping the passport to Guatemala City by Cargo Expreso? What is the contact information for Cargo Expreso? How does Betsy renew the visa legally if you don’t leave the country for the required three days? I used another “lawyer service” in Panajachel for around Q400 and it turned out to be using fake stamps, although luckily I didn’t have any problems with this. But I don’t use that service anymore.
- The visa renewal can only be done after 90 days. After 180 days you still have to leave the country. There’s some question about whether three days out of the country is actually required. I’ve read the immigration regulations and it never says that. Some folks with migración at the border will tell you it’s three days, others say your length of time out of the country doesn’t mater. In November 2016, the cost of the visa renewal was Q420. The cost for Cargo Expreso (each way) was Q35. Totally worth it for a legal renewal in my view. The biggest pain is that you have to send the right “cedula” photo, which has a matte finish and is smaller than the newer passport photos. The only place we found that can really do those photos is Fotos Ordoñez in Solola. Kodak told me they could do them, but then gave me the wrong type of photo. When I explained, again, what I needed, they said they couldn’t have it until the next day. They don’t actually do it there–they send it to Fotos Ordoñez. Magic Print can’t do them either.

My husband and I used Bety for our retirement residencies. We were extremely happy with her services and highly recommend her. She is very communicative, always answers emails and returns phone calls. She walks you through everything. She speaks English though her staff may not.
- Thank you! How much did your retirement residencies cost? We will probably be doing this soon. Do you now pay taxes in Guatemala since you have retired here?
