Process:

I'm doing the same with Guatemala. The process is to ensure they pause your bike permit instead of cancelling it. Bring a photocopy of your import permit, they'll hold onto it at the border and you'll have to come in through the same one you left (because they will have your import permit, of course).

Obviously this only works if you actually still have time on your permit. They don't pause the countdown, so ensure you account for the fact that the days available to you in the country continue to tick down as you go along. Don't let the permit expire while you're away...

You don't have to, but if you don't I think you might have to cancel your permit and then you'll have to purchase it again when you re-enter.

Yes, but don't forget that if you cancel your permit upon exit, the CA-4 countries have restrictions on how soon you can re-enter with the bike. Some are 60 days, some are 90 days. so if you cancel your permit, then try to re-enter with the bike a month later, it will be an issue. Costa Rica (not a CA-4 country) has a 90 day no re-entry restriction IIRC. I'm not sure about Panama.

lucky (?)

I had a spot of good bad luck, and now have some information to add to this thread.

I spent about 85 days in Guatemala, and they cancelled my fucking permit even though they had told me they wouldn't.

The lady who took care of my paperwork switched offices. They can't switch until all their paperwork is cancelled... so she got stamp happy just to get out of there, everyone who was relying on her is just going to have to find out at the border that their permits are now cancelled.

Good news: Didn't have to wait 3 months.

Bad news: was rushing for nonexistent time constraints, had to pay to enter the bike again.

I was under the impression that CR stops the countdown when they suspend the permit, and that the 90 day no-reentry only applies when you have used up all of your originally granted 90 days. Is this not true?

Yes, I also thought that it was a gentlemen's club thread. Not that I've ever been to one.

I ran into issues in one country after running to Yaviza and back north. I just kept insisting that the restriction had to be wrong, and all of the time I was holding up the line of truckers, asking to speak with El Jefe. I guess they got tired of my Gringo shenanigans, and cleared me. I think it was El Salvador to Honduras.
