This is where my money is. For me, this is a guess, since I've never done this particular process. But my intuition tells me it should be able to be done right at the brick and mortal border aduana, not at a downrange checkpoint. Just a guess.

They don't stamp anything at the 30k checkpoint, they just check your TVIP.

If you cross at Piedras Negras or Cd. Acuna, your only option for the TVIP is to get it downstream at the Allende checkpoint. However, Cd. Acuna will issue you a tourist card, Piedras Negras will not. At Nuevo Laredo you can get both the tourist card and the TVIP.

EDIT: If you guys are talking about Baja, dunno.

Ok, so...

If I get the TVIP online and cros at TJ WITH my TVIP, what else is needed to take the bike into Mexico?

My plan is to ship the bike from TJ, so I can fly back to the boat anf pick it up from DF at a later point.

Im super thankful for all yu guys' input, but Im still not getting one last questin answered: what else do I need besides the TVIP, and can I get it at the border??



Estoy muy agradecido

You need the tourist card. Yes, you can get that at the border.

I have heard stories of the officials checking for the TVIP on the ferry to Mazatlan. Evidently you can get your sticker either in Baja Sur or Mazatlan. I have never heard of anyone being forced to go back to the border.

Give me about 24 hours and I will see if I can get the answer off of another mailing list.

I'd simply call several shipping companies in TJ and ask them. That would be getting the answer from the horse's mouth vs. relying on the less-than-accurate innerwebz or government employees who can be, at times, something on the order of Random Answer Generators.

Thank you, but I am aware of this....
Im not looking to ride my bike down to LaPaz......Im looking to ship the bike from where there is a Paqueteria - which happens to be in TJ.
So, I need ALL my paperwork done before the bike gets on the truck.

Im not worried about paperwork for myself since Ive done it a 1000 times. I just need to find out what else BESIDES the TVIP I need for the BIKE.

Yep. That is correct sir.
Only problem.....the horses mouth doesnt know its culo from a hole in the ground.
If it was as easy as calling someone, it would have already been done without interrupting this thread from war stories of fine wine and women. Or is it fine women and wine?
Doesnt matter. What matters is who the f|_|ck is gonna give me the correct answer?
