Are Mexican Work Visas tied to the employer?

Thank-you for your time.

It depends.

There's not really "a work visa". There are temporary and permanent resident visa. The temporary resident visas have very controlled activities, for example permission to work at X company. Permanent resident visas give broader permission of activities.

On the company side they also have to have permission to hire foreigners.

To add to what MotherF writes, your first residente temporal visa will be tied to your employer and an approved job offer enabling you to come into the country. Once you are in with the visa, you have a bit more freedom and can change employers, with some restrictions.

Unless of course her or his first resident permit is tired to a spouse, parent or child. Then it wouldn't include permission to work at all.
There are a variety of ways to get a temporary resident visa, and not all of them include permission to work. Wink

Let me see if I can tie it all together.
A residente temporal visa needs some type of financial guarantee; you have to show that you will be supported by sufficient income. This is commonly one of the following:
• outside income (such as a pension, or income from investments)
• support by a family member (spouse, etc.)
• employer

As mentioned, the first two generally don’t include permission to work.
There is also work permission for “independents”; those who are self-employed, but it’s uncertain whether this is still possible.

Aside from this, the straightforward answer to your question is “yes.” If your economic guarantee is based on employment by a certain employer, then your status is tied to that employer. If you leave that job and stay in Mexico as a residente temporal, you have to officially change the terms of the economic guarantee (most commonly to another employer). I.e., you have to go to INM with a letter from the previous employer and a letter from the new employer, and process a “cambio de empleador”.
