Question Temporary Vehicle Importation Permit

Three of us just returned from a trip to Veracruz. We crossed at Reynosa. Due to road blockage we were unable to get into the Banjercito checkpoint and ended up in the one way lanes to the U.S. We were unable to return our stickers and get our receipts. Any ideas on how to resolve this issue ?

Since you didn't want to cancel your permits before crossing back into the US, and didn't want to ride back across the border after entering the US to cancel your permits. . . I'd say just bring the same bikes back the next time you cross and all will be fantastic.

Yeah, I would agree with that generally; however, I may ride a different bike on the next trip and one of my riding buds may sell his current bike and buy another. I hope there is another solution.

You might try contacting a Mexican embassy or more. I tried this a few years ago with a similar self-induced problem, but had no luck. Maybe your clover has more leaves.

I once dreamed that fresh lobster cost $1 per lb...

there is a solution,,,go back into Mexico with the same bike within 6 months and exit and cancel the permit or don't plan to return again with a bike.

Do you think I could just return it the same way I got it (FedEx) and just be done with this.

No, they have to eyeball the bike. The last time I turned in a permit they videotaped the bike during the cancellation process to have a record. Dan

I've been there when they looked at the bike and another time they just accepted the document.
This whole thing is a mess. Of course, I did it to myself.

Last year crossing at Nogales, I witnessed two guys who hadn't turned in/cancelled previous permits. They were on different bikes than the previous time and they had to sign the title over to their wives. Point is, it doesn't make any difference what you take to Mexico in/on the next time, you are in their computer as not having taken your bike out. You will not be allowed to bring a vehicle in.

I had the same problem (same border, I think!). There is nothing that the consulate will do for you (if you ever get ahold of them).

As others have said, the customs official has to physically scan / verify the VIN / actually remove the sticker themselves. I ended up doing a non-so-quick trip to get some tacos in acuna in order to cancel mine.

Yeah Daveg. If I lived as close as you, it wouldn't be so much of a problem. Unfortunately I am twice as far from the border as you.

Answer I received from BanEjercito a few months ago for a similar problem

Le informo que el tramite para la cancelacion del permiso de importacion temporal es necesario que acuda a cualquier modulo de la franja fronteriza para realizar la cancelación de su permiso, presentando el permiso original y/o la tarjeta de internacion, la motocicleta o vehiculovehículo, el holograma pegado en el parabrisas del mismo, a fin de obtener su certificado de retorno y estar en posibilidades de obtener un nuevo permiso, cuando quiera ingresar nuevamente a territorio nacional, en su caso que usted no puede acudir a los modulos de Banjercito con su motocicleta y que es un requisito indispensable para la cancelacion del permiso, se recomienda que consulte a la autoridad aduanera para que le indiquen si es posible cancelar el permiso y que documentos requiere para ello puede consultar la pagina en Internet www.aduanas.sat.gob.com.mx CIITEVAduanas.sat.gob.mx o llamar al telefonos 011-52-55-58-02-21-85 ò 011-52-55-58-02-07-52 en la Cd. de México para mayor información al respecto.

Agradecemos su atención.

you either have to take the bike back to the border or get new id. they use your passport number to identify you. renew your passport and you will get a new number. this is probably cheaper then going all the way back to the border.
