Banjercito online Mexico Vehicle Permit???

Hey, so I am attempting to get my vehicle import permit online before I head across the Mexico border at the end of the month, only to find that I couldn't confirm the purchase...??
ANyone have problems with their site??? I then tried to do the pre-register so I was all set and could get past the page on that either ... I had all my info entered correctly, etc., just the website wasn't working ... Anyone with experience so I don't have to wait at the border for this?

Did you apply thru internet explorer browser and clear your cookies and delete files, etc like banjercito requests?

I applied for a permit yesterday and sent in all of my info. I got a confirmation in Spanish that they have received all of my info.

No response today. If I don't hear back by Friday or see the chg come thru on my credit card bill I'll probably give them a call to see whassup.

Try using Internet Explorer if you aren't already.

The TVIP is good for six months. If you over stay in Mexico you may have to pay a fine, but as long as you are on the same bike you are OK and won't be banished.

If you leave the country without turning in your TVIP, then after the six month permit expires you go on their No Entrada list. This means you can't take any vehicle back into mainland Mexico. The computer will pick up your name and passport number. (Baja OK). So even if you exit into Guatemala, if you don't plan to be back to Mexico within the six months, then DO turn in your TVIP and Turista sticker. You get a nice form as your receipt that you have complied.

You can travel in Mexico without the TVIP if you are lucky enough that no one asks you for it. It is possible for them to confiscate your bike ... or send you back to the border to get the TVIP ... but I've never actually heard of a confiscation. But things are changing in Mexico (fast)

About a year ago I heard that a new TVIP system was going to be instituted. No idea on progress of this or if it's even true. The fact is, once into the interior of the country, very few officials even know about the import system nor care. (except Aduana who mostly only work near borders/ports)

Hmmm, I plan to ride through Mexico on the way to SA and won't return for what I expect to be longer than 6 months.

Mark, simply rid yourself of the TVIP when exiting southern Mexico at a border aduana....get the receipt.

As far as whether or not officials down range know about TVIP or not, who cares, it's not worth not having it and having to worry about it your entire trip. FTR, I've been asked to produce both this and the tourist visa at various spots all over the country.

As far as online application goes, you haven't gone anywhere with the application process unless and until you receive (1) confirmation that your application has been successful and your credit card worked, or (2) your application has been rejected due to ineligibility or a declined credit card. Tweak your browser as mentioned above or try another computer. The site does go down from time to time but they're pretty savvy and they get it back up quickly. It's never failed for me.

Thanks Bob.

I'll get it, how accurate does the entry into MX date have to be? If I show up at the border early or late is it going to be a problem?

Technically you can enter after the effective date of the permit but not before its effective.

Remember, some officials live up to the molecular definition of the word. They are low paid, and can be meticulous and tedious. I wouldn't cross any earlier than the effective date on the permit.

There's always the topic of mordidas and greasing palms, neither of which I advocate.

Cool, I'll be conservative on my date of departure. Either way, it's early May.

Here's what you'll receive from itvnet@banjercito.com.mx:

Dear [Misery Goat] [Mark] [Grand Poohbah] [Your Royal Importance]:

Thanks for sending us so prompt the requested documentation. Everything is complete and we have integrated them into the respective file.

With best regards.

Of course, I really don't know what salutation they'll choose

If it takes more than 5 business days after you receive the actual TVIP, don't panic, but let me know about it.
