OECD and the Government of the State of Yucatan launch the “Digital Window for investment"


5 January 2021, Merida


The OECD and the Government of the State of Yucatan launched in the city of Merida the first Digital Window for Investment in Mexico and Latin America. The window allows investors to carry out all procedures online for buying and selling land, building facilities and starting business operations. The Governor of the State of Yucatan, Mauricio Vila, accompanied virtually by the OECD Secretary General, Angel Gurría, made the public launch of the window.


The window offers the following features:

  • It is available on the web portal
  • It allows the completion of high and medium impact online formalities required by an investor, businessperson or entrepreneur to start activities, including, among others:
    • prior diagnosis of the property where the investment is intended to be installed;
    • Registration and regulariSation of the property;
    • Electronic signature and online payments;
    • Submit information, manage and follow up on government procedures;
    • Schedule inspection or verification visits;
    • Obtain the corresponding permits, licences and authorisations digitally.


The Digital Window for Investment is the first of its kind in Mexico and is the result of a collaboration agreement between the OECD and the Government of the State of Yucatan to simplify, digitise and streamline high-impact government procedures for businesses. With the new Digital Window for Investment, Yucatan is positioned at the forefront of better regulation through digital government, which promotes investments in favour of the generation of formal jobs.
