Has anyone done this border crossing lately? When I entered Brazil from Uruguay at Jaguarao, the Federal Police said I did not need a Temporary Import Permit as the bike was considered a "personal possession." This flies in the face of what I experienced on a previous visit from Bolivia, where I was issued with a TIP. Now I have heard from another reader the border post up there in the far north is quite strict. Just wondering what will happen if I turn up there with no TIP.
