The following appears in a contract:
"...el personal siempre deberá cumplir con la personalidad migratoria correspondiente que exige el gobierno..."
My question: does "personalidad" mean "legal status" here, as it often does?
Another one, please:
What is the TLC in the following?--
"XXX no está sujeto al pago de impuestos conforme a Legislación Fiscal Mexicana debido a las Disposiciones específicas del TLC."

TLC = NAFTA


Explanation:
The "Tratado de libre comercio" is Spanish for North American Free Trade Agreement, the name for the agreement between the US, Mexico AND Canada:

"NAFTA created a free trade area encompassing 396 million people
and $9 trillion in output.

Launched on January 1, 1994, by Canada, the United States and Mexico, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) provides for the elimination of virtually all tariffs over a 15-year period, the reduction of non-tariff trade barriers and the liberalization of cross-border investment.

NAFTA builds upon the Canada-United States Free Trade agreement (FTA), which entered into force in 1989 and eliminated virtually all tariffs and many non-tariff barriers as of January 1, 1998. The two countries have the largest bilateral trading relationship in the world, exchanging more than a billion dollars a day.

NAFTA broke new ground in the elaboration of rules governing services trade, intellectual property, government procurement and competition. It also established a unique system for the prevention and resolution of disputes through committees, working groups and
binding binational panels." Etc...

Treaty came into force on January 1, 1994
