Think of it this way: You are importing two things.
1. Your person
2. Your motorcycle.
Cool, I'll look into that and some of your others; sound interesting.
Looked on line to get TVIP, need to fill out forms, need PRE APROVED VISA to get TVIP and then fax or mail copy of title and passport WAIT 7 DAYS TO GET STICKER.
Decided to go to Mexican consulate in Sacramento (100 miles) to avoide the fax email etc. and get it all done right there. Sneek away from work, drive down to Sac Get a number they give me a book all in spanish (ok) we are second in line, going good.
The clerk tells use we need to go online get a PREAPROVED VISA PRINTED COPY TO GET THE TVIP. You can;t do that here?
No you have to get done before you come, BUT you can go down to XYZ copy and they will do it for $8. we drive down 3 miles get the copy come back give her the printout we get the TVIP all is good right? They tell me its $400 dollars charge my card for thousands of pesos I don;t calc. turns out to be $462, shame on me. Nowshe needs a copy of of my passport and title. While waiting I happen to notice that there is a copy windowwith a fairly long line.Got you! I have copies read it on ADV!, gave her the copies. I check to see that the vin is correct it is all is cool.
Peel off the sticker tonight put it on the windshield looking and admiring my acomplshment, thats when i notice that it is only for 60 days not 6 months F)(*)(*)(. Call my buddy, his is the same we can't get out of CA. without a problem. All I can do is hope they will fix it with out my credit card because i'm not going for credit and recharge. If thats the case I'll deal with it on the road. Moral of the story? Check EVERYTHING even if you are still in the USA on Mexican territory AND BRING COPIES. saw it onADV.
Its just a fire drill for things to come on the way to Panama nothing that another cerveza can't fix.
It has been laid out here in such tiresome detail so many times. This stuff is not rocket science, you don't need to speak Spanish to do it, Banjercito has a phone # you can call at which there is english speaking assistance, I posted that number a few pages back, I am in Chile now and do not have it at my fingertips. This is so simple to do at the border that I really don't understand why people put themselves through the hassle at home. The TVIP runs congruently with and co-terminates with the tourist visa. The first thing you do at the border is to get the tourist visa and ask for 180 days because you plan to be traveling in Mexico for 180 days, say nothing more. With your fresh new visa in hand you go to the Banjercito counter or office and ask for your TVIP, you do not need to show the title, only the valid registration card. All of your paperwork: passport, vehicle registration, and credit card must have the same name on it. If your passport says John Paul Jones then your registration and credit card must say John Paul Jones, not John P Jones or you will have some 'splainin to do. Yes, for the umpeenth and forty two time, they charge your credit card... what they charge seems to be based on the value of the vehicle.... it is nearly $400 or more, it is refundable if you pay attention and close the TVIP when you leave Mexico. If you don't close the TVIP you don't get your money back and you can never bring another vehicle into Mexico as long as that TVIP is open, and you are fined for having an open TVIP after it and your tourist visa have expired. If all of your paperwork is in order you should have no trouble at the border. Why lay on an extra layer of bureaucracy at a consular office in the US. Yeah sure, it is possible to do it on line but it does take more time and things can go back and forth.
Out comes the ass whoopin' crane!
I was still Googling Transitory Very Important Person
Aren't we all at one time or another.
TV show Mysteries at the Museum is showing the mummies in GTO.
I have now found something (other than narcos) I DON'T want to see in Mexico.
Whoa, dude! You give haircuts, too? Doohickey inserts, tire change lessons, AND haircuts AND a good Texas brisket!
Trice for President!
You forgot one...

The Mummies are actually an interesting sight. They're on tour all the way up here in hillbilly country (GSO) right now but I caught them down in GTO back in 2008.

¡Feliz Cumpleaños! Title of recent post:
Feliz Cumpleanos Ace Jones
Ok, I gots to know...everytime I saw your name in posts I just assumed it was Spanish: ah-say-hon-is....kind of like "cojones" but now that I saw "Ace Jones" I thought maybe it is just that. So which is it?
Ace Jones...or Acejones?
That's interesting ! It's Ace. Ace Jones was the name of a cat we had. He showed up at the house as a kitten brought home by our other cat, Sport. My wife asked me what I was going to name him and I said AC ( for additional cat). It eventually morphed into Ace. I started using it as a screen name as it was convenient. Sadly Sport and Ace are no longer with us, but Ace lives on as Acejones. My name is actually Dennis Jones. Thanks for the birthday greeting !
