I did the TIP online. After processing my payment, the online site failed to return. I emailed email@example.com
and we sorted through the process. I also submitted a detailed list of equipment
w/serial numbers. Aside from the website failure, the only problem is I had to email
them several times the USCG documentation
and passports. Took about 5 email
exchanges, each requiring the documentation
, and the TIP arrived a couple days later.
Also, once you receive the TIP document, you need to sign the back indicating that you plan on returning. This needs to be scanned and emailed back to them too.
You are probably out of time for the Baja
Haha, thought they might be able to send the TIP to Ensenada or Cabo.
Yes, the online process is less then perfect, but it does work and the folks handling the paperwork and email are all very nice. It was a lot easier to do online than to head
over to the consulate. Just be patient.
