Which Country to Store Bike Long Term

Hi,

I know this question has been asked several times. The information I have is that a bike can be used/stored in:

Mexico = 180 days.
Other CA countries typically 90 days.

It seems that bonded stores are available e.g. in CR.

I need storage for up to 9 months, while I return home. Which country would you recommend I aim for?

Thanks

Argentina gives you 8 months at the major border crossing, 3 months at the more remote crossings. I'm told Uruguay gives you a year. All the others are 90 days.

Paraguay you can legally sell the bike in country, so you probably aren't even issued a temporary import permit, but dont know for sure. It would be interesting to know about that.

Hi Kalaharigeorge,

The only Latin American country I know of that gives a one year TVIP is Uruguay.

As far as Central America, you would have to do bonded storage. No country there allows 9 months on a temporary vehicle import permit. The most I got was 180 days in Mexico.

Best,
John Downs

Hello,
I stored my car once in Nicaragua. When I left the country to Costa Rica I told the customs that I have lost my permiso/permit for the car. Then I had to pay a 100 US $ fine. That was all. But I still had my car and years later I returned without any problems to Nicaragua. If you are over the time from your permit you have to pay 50 $ fine. But I don't know if it works for such a long time. I payd it once.

saludos Jürgen
