No. Neither will automatically become citizen of the other country.

No. Immigrants must fulfill certain requirements to become Mexican nationals.

Not automatically. They have to apply for a green card and then apply for Naturalization.

More than likely, you are already a Mexican citizen. Get your birth documents together and just get a mexican passport to prove Mexican citizenship.

No you will not become a Mexican citizen but you will have Mexican recidency. Your fiancee can have the option to apply for citizenship later on if she wants.

Do make sure that it is a legitimate ceremony and marriage certificate. But yes they can, as long as that American citizen is not a felon, is able to adequately support that spouse financially (affidavit of support) and when they come back to the U.S. gets down to the business of filing their spouse's paperwork.

No she cannot. To become a US citizen you must be a US resident. Niether can you become a permenant resident for the same reason.

You don't automatically become a Mexican citizen just because you marry a Mexican. You need to apply at the Secretaria de Relaciones Exteriores nearest to where you live. You must live together in Mexico for at least 2 years during which time you need to have an FM-3 (which gives you permission to remain in Mexico for more than 6 months).

No, it is very difficult for Mexicans to become American citizens

I married a Mexican citizen in Mexico and I am a US citizen, and we currently live in Mexico. You can only live in Mexico for the time they alloted on your white paper when you entered the country, usually it is 90-180 days. During that time you should apply for a FM2 at the immigration office. An FM2 is a visa that allows you to live in Mexico. You would qualify for it because you are married to a Mexican citizen. An FM2 is good for as long as you want provided you renew it every year and you can become a citizen after having it for 2 years. FM2 allows you do live and participate as a Mexican citizen would. I currenlty have an FM3, which is a working visa. I got it through my employer. If you want to work in Mexico you could get an FM3 and that would also allow you to stay in Mexico, but it needs to be renewed every year. Good luck and I hope that this helps a little.

No...not exactly. You would have to migrate to Tanzania to actually become a citizen of Tanzania, or you would have to have be born there.Does marrying a Mexican make you a Mexican? Think of it that way.
