just checked my bank account and the Mexican fees/ deposits have been returned, so i was charged

$400 for importing the bike (deposit)
$50.45 import paperwork fee for the TVIP
$22.96 visa fee me me

i know some of you always inquire on fees and there you are, its for my reference for later date too, obviously the figures may change a little for others dependent on the current exchange rate

About da fees

I been following you and hey,!! I wanta go to Belize too!! And I am in Chetumal , Mexico. So, I got up this morning, found the Kawasaki dealer, such as it was, paid $190 ($14.25us ) for a fram oil filter, smiled at the counter help, got some lunch and headed for the gate. I was not in the best humor. I had been thinking about my deposit and wondering how that would work out. I was asked for $300 ($22.50us) for an exit tax. I declined their offer without quotable offence and went back to town. The rest of the day did go really well. But I gotta know: Is that right? And there was a guy being way to friendly. He said ' Don't be scared' , which I hear as a warning. Anyway. What should I expect? If you could help out I would be very grateful. It helps me a lot, to kinda know what to expect. I do have 4 more months on may Mexican Visa etc, so this is not a real crisis. ratbikemike

It occurs to me that for current pricing, we could just check with President Obama's Secret Service and get a breakdown by country.....

On a serious note, I just want to say; thank you for explaining the ins and outs of the border crossings, that kind of info is extremely helpful. In fact, it seems to me that we should start a sub forum just for that subject, with people posting what they did - that way we could keep it up to date and save from digging through the site for hours.
