How do you know when a Pueblano has moved into your neighborhood?

30 day TVIP!! Need input

This is a duplicate post from the CA route planning thread. I will be looking at the link there from the other guy this happen to but any information would be helpful.

Just copied and pasted since I assume I will be hearing from all the usual suspects

START DUPLICATE POST
SB your comments are spot about the TC. I just got issues a 30 day one eventhough I said I was just touring Mex. It all works for me bc I flying out of PV back to AK for a few weeks. So on my return flight I will just get a new TC.

Had I been going straight though it would have been a major problem.

OH SHIT!!! I just checked my TVIP and it is only for 30 days!!!!

Any suggestions on getting this corrected???? Damn IT!!!! I thought TVIP was always for 6 months and the lady at the counter said they could only do TC for 30 days but like I said I didnt care.

I wished I had noticed this in Maz and I would have tried to correct at the ferry terminal.

Fire away with the bad or good new boys!!! What is my best plan to handle all this now?

The TVIP will always be for the same term as you visa/TC. I'm thinking you can head to the nearest Banjercito office and ask for mercy but I doubt they will be able to do anything and you are probably going to have to go to immigration and turn in the tourist visa and get a new one for 180 days (not free). Then do the same thing at the Banjercito. You will get your deposit back at the current exchange rate then pay it again. You will be out the initial fee you paid unless you find a sympathetic ear and someone who knows how to force the computer to cooperate.

How many days do you plan on being in Mexico?

Buenes suerte and report back to the rest of us with the outcome.

Where are you at the moment?

I am in San Blas. Had a hell of day trying to rely on Goji Ruji. I knew better but I think my late night at Joe's Oyster Bar clouded my judgement.

I fly back to AK on the 9th and am storing my bike in PV. I return in 3 weeks for a 4 month ride to Peru. My TC is not an issue because I am in and out of Mex with in the 30 days on each trip. Its the whole leaving the bike in PV and the TVIP will expire before I return.

I will give it a shot at sorting it out in PV. I am not sure where to even go.

I am only processing constructive criticism at this time. I remain optimistic that I will get this all sorted in PV.

I will post my disappointment and mental melt down in 4-5 days. All sarcastic responses will be welcome at that time.

I sent you a PM with my opinion on your situation.

It's just my opinion.

Well, all I can say is that in 5 years of living here full time and 2 years with multiple trips before that, we have had multiple permits and visas on 2 bikes and the truck, juggling the permits, and each time they have been co-terminus. Now to be sure, I could turn in a TVIP and keep the visa but the if I got a new TVIP using that visa, it couldn't be issued to go past the expiration date on my visa.

If your experience is different, I would like to hear about it. The one thing you learn is that it is always different from office to office and agent to agent.

Riding back to AZ and back south would cost me more than the $400.

Its simply an attempt to get my money back at this point. We will see what happens.

May just have to chalk this one up to experience. Several hundred dollar lessons tend to stick with an individual!!

Thought I left most of my dumbass decision making and mistakes behind in my 20's. Good to see I remain consistent in my 30's

Funny too cause I checked the VIN about 5 times!!!!

I just spent some time on the Bancercito website and it seems to indicate that you will need to return to the border to cancel and get a new permit. Shortest distance is towards Texas? Comments on where is best border town to hit from PV from the Tejano contingent?

Yep that just sucks. You've got to watch those guys at the border. Good luck.
