Re: Mexican "TIP" question?

consult with mexican consulate. THEY will give you straight scoop.

one has 6 months to decide whether to remain or leave, same as tourist visa--180 days is 6 months. leave before 6 months, no need for renewal of tourist visa or obtaining of tip.

Re: Mexican "TIP" question?

If compliance with the law is not adequate to be safe then the situation passes into the inscrutable. It appears that even folks who are old hands at cruising down in Mexico are only guessing about what has happened and how it will work out. Time will tell. Some folks will go anyhow, what happens then will tell the tale.
I guess we will need a sticky thread to follow the progression of events over the next year or so.

Re: Mexican "TIP" Question?

Prof....

Temporary in this case means.... "I will be leaving the country of Mexico with this (TIP'd) item at some date before the ten year expiration"

1. I am not leaving it here indefinitely
2. I am not bringing it here to sell

It's main reason is to avoid paying TAXES on your "personal effects" you are bringing into Mexico. It would be nearly impossible to obtain a TIP for a semi-truck load of lumber for example....

So - why should I not be worried about obscure rules that might be enforced?
I think you just answered your own question. Many of the boats were 100% perfectly LEGAL, yet incorrectly placed on the embargo list. So we are not talking about Cruisers not following the very well published and clear rules regarding the needed paperwork, but rather the Mexican Officials not following their own rules, and frankly, just screwing up. This entire ordeal is a Government screw-up and Cruisers can panic all they want but if it has nothing to do with following the rules, how will you reading them like an attorney help you or anyone if the Mexican officials simple make a bad mistake....It won't.

What a cruiser needs to do to check-in and legally cruise in Mexico is well know and published. What is seems people are having an incredibilly hard time coming to grips with is that mistakes made by the Mexican Government CAN and DO happen and those mistakes can screw you. The only real solution for this is to not goto Mexico or in some cases even leave your house.

Re: Mexican "TIP" Question?

I don't know if applicable in this case, but I'm going to guess the "Temporary Import Permit" is a translation of a Spanish word or phrase. I'm sure we've all seen how all words don't always translate accurately across languages. The language issue could be an explanation for the prof's issue.

Why do you keep going ?

zeehag nailed it and she knows.

Your boat, your choice.

As far as I can tell that statement is just flat wrong when applied to boats brought into Mexico via sea.

The SECTUR / GOB Manual of Tourist Entry says very clearly:
"3.3. ENTRY BY SEA
3.3.1. PRIVATE SHIPS
3.3.1.1. CUSTOMS
Passengers residing in a foreign country entering Mexico in ships such as boats, yachts
or sailing boats must go through the steps of provisional importation of their means of
transportation
and in their application at the Mexican Customs, they will indicate out the
electrical devices of the kitchen, furniture and instruments the ship contains, as will as
the merchandise and necessary supplies for their stay in the country.
If you so desire, in the Marina of your preference, you will be helped through these
steps, and in some cases they may be able to go through all the steps for you.
Regardless of whether your nationality is Mexican or foreign, or if you are resident in
national territory or in a foreign country, you may temporarily import your ship for a
maximum of ten years."


There is nothing in that document that says you can wait 6-months to obtain a TIP - or I did I miss something?

The section of the Manual that allows a 6-month window is ONLY for ships that have been imported by LAND.
" 3.3.1.1 Ships that are provisionally imported into national territory by land
The provisional importation of a ship, mobile home or motorcycle may be carried out
together with the vehicle that tows them, through the submission before the Customs of
entry, the corresponding application of provisional importation of vehicles, for a term of

up to six months."

Re: Mexican "TIP" Question?

under the old regime we were given up to 6 months in which to obtain tip`. we were not forced to do it immediately. that is why i was 6 mon ths before i got mine.l.... and visa expired then at 6 months but one could obtain fm3 without returning to place of origin.
i checked into mexico in ensenada in april, 2011. govt changed dec 31, 2012. new govt, new enforcement.

btw...how do you propose to bring a boat to mexico in any other way but sea if you sailed it here.....
..mexican consulate has newest laws and regs.l, they are your ultimate resource for mexico tourism and cruising.
