For more information about importing items, contact us.
For student groups: work with the Education Abroad office to contract with vendors in Mexico who can provide logistical support for study abroad programs. Contracting directly with Mexican vendors, prevents delays normally found in contract review processes on campus because our Mexican attorney (certified by the Office of System General Counsel for the Texas A&M System), reviews these contracts in about a week.
For faculty or departments: reserve spaces, offices, and other goods and services needed to conduct research, present courses, or hold conferences and workshops. Contract for services with Mexican vendors and coordinate payment through interdepartmental transfers. Contracting directly with Mexican vendors prevents delays normally found in contract review processes on campus because our Mexican attorney (certified by the Office of System General Counsel for the Texas A&M System), reviews these contracts in about a week.
For individual faculty: provide guidance about visiting Mexico and how to connect with government or educational offices.
Professionals: If you want to hire Mexican professionals to assist with research or academic activities, Mexico Partnership Services can hire them on your behalf to carry out these duties.
Existing faculty: Sometimes faculty with Mexican citizenship have immigration delays in US visa issuance. The Corporation can hire them temporarily to teach or continue their duties virtually in Mexico while their immigration processes are resolved.
For services provided by Mexico Partnership Services, we can facilitate a legal review of Mexican contracts by a Texas A&M University System approved attorney in Mexico (turnaround time approximately 1 - 2 weeks). The contracts would be written between Mexico Partnership Services and the Mexican company or vendor. These contracts are not reviewed on campus through the typical campus processes because they are agreements between Mexican organizations.
In most cases, the contract review by the attorney in Mexico will have a fee that must be paid by the Texas A&M department requesting the contract. Contact us for an estimate.
The Department of Global Engagement at Texas A&M is contracted with a translation service. If you need an official translation of a document in Spanish (or another language) to English or vice versa, we can assist you with this. There is a fee that must be paid by the Texas A&M department requesting the translation. Contact us for an estimate.
