Woman Receives Refund for Canceled Mexican Permit Order
WESLACO - A Rio Grande Valley woman received some of her money back after the Mexican government canceled her permit order.
Linda Barrientos said she paid nearly $500 for a permit to travel into Mexico. After her online application was not approved, the government kept the $459 fee.
Barrientos later applied again and paid for another permit. She also inquired on how she might get her initial payment refunded.
The woman said she would have appreciated if the government contacted her by “email or a phone call.”
Barrientos said it took more than four weeks to get her money back. When the day came, she said there was only $450 in her account.
She said there’s no explanation for the deduction, but she’s happy to have most of her money back.
