Mexico passengers and crew spreadsheet

Howdy,

I'm trying to get all my online paperwork done for my upcoming Mexico trip and I've hit a snag. Apparently, the process is to go to https://www.banjercito.com.mx/registroEmbarques/ and register where they give me a receipt (All good up to here!) and then there's an Excel file I have to fill out and email to the appropriate office.

I can't seem to find that excel file, and all the links I find seem to be broken.

Can someone point me to this file?

Also, while we're here.. I'm a newbie at this, so if you can verify, the process for sailing to Ensenada from California seems to be:
Register at above site, get receipt, fill out form, mail to appropriate INAMI Office, wait for the entry authorization to be emailed to me (This is not the FMM, correct?)
Get TIP online at https://www.banjercito.com.mx/registroVehiculos/
Get fishing license at sportfishingmexico.com
Show up in Ensenada with above forms, boat documentation, and Passport

Does that seem about right?

The only point I would add is, you must have valid fishing licenses for every person on the vessel if you have ANY fishing gear.
A single license for a single person does not work. Each person must have a license even if he/she has no intention of fishing.

Go to strictly sail in Richmond next month. They usually have someone from Baja Naval there and they are very helpful with all this kind of stuff. In fact if you have a little work done on your boat there I think they may do it for you.

Re: Mexico passengers and crew spreadsheet

Unless they changed it recently, you don't have to stop at Ensenada as long as you have your paperwork. Can go to any check in port (Cabo is the first easy one).

Also, don't remember if you included getting tourist cards (visas) online. In the past it was better to do it separately for each crew member as immigration at some airports require a receipt proving the fee was paid. The fact that you have a stamped valid tourist card doesn't matter to the people in Puerto Vallarta. Myself and other crew have been burned on this several times. Leaving from Cabo is not an issue.

THe info is a bit dated as the last time I was on the west coast of Mexico was in 15 when I left for the Caribbean. Did not have any issues checking into east coast of Mexico coming from the south, even without the pre-done forms.

Enjoy Mexico, it a great place to cruise.

Re: Mexico passengers and crew spreadsheet

Hi, How long do you plan to be in Mexico? I live here and I have a 10 yr. "permisso" It's around $200 and with this I have had no issues with anything. When we landed in Mexico with my Irwin we went to the Port Captains office and he told us exactly what we needed to do...For the boat-nothing...show all papers etc, and make copies of everything...have 2-3 sets of copies of all your papers here...I keep all the originals in my house. My friend had to go to immigration and pay $480 Mxn...($25USD) and that was it.
I don't know about the west coast though...The law should be the same but Vive Mexico...I have a friend here who does all this for a small fee if you want to get the Permisso...He took care of all the paperwork and it's so much easier for a Mexican without all the kick back crap a gringo has to deal with.
If you have trouble online you can contact me at: all_as@hotmail.com
Peace...

Re: Mexico passengers and crew spreadsheet

Hello everyone,

So filling out this Excel document for the list of passengers and crew, a couple of questions (this is a private sailboat sailing from Guatemala to the West Coast):

1. What do I put for the SETRAM basic record?

2. What do I put for the cosignee or shipping agency?

3. My USCG Certificate is registered under an LLC, I understand I'll have to have a notarized letter on my company letterhead, does anyone have an example I could use?

4. What is the Sea Record Number?

My God they make this tough, any and all help sincerely appreciated!

Kind regards,

Matt

Re: Mexico passengers and crew spreadsheet

Several good posts. Easiest way to check into Mexico on the West Coast is to stop at Coral Marina in Ensenada (you must now stop in Ensenada. You can't go directly to Cabo). For about $60 the marina will send someone with you to all the required stops including getting the required Temporary Import Permit (TIP). Just bring your documentation and passports (you will also need insurance certificate for any Mexican marina). You did need a notarized letter if your boat is in Llc and I don't have a copy. You will get FMM visas for the crew, clearance papers and your TIP. I have heard people have had some trouble getting TIP online.

PS: When sailing in Mexico, you may be asked to show proof of Liability Insurance from a Mexican owned company. This coverage will be a separate policy from your regular boat insurance policy, which covers both your hull and P&I liability. (Yes, the Mexican Liability coverage is a duplication of your P&I liability under your marine insurance policy - it's officialdom's way of protecting their local companies.) I've heard that enforcement is somewhat selective, but that the penalties for not having it can be large. If you do want a quote, see the following self-service link: Mexican Liability

¡Buen Viaje!

Re: Mexico passengers and crew spreadsheet

TabbyCat is correct although in my experience YOU WILL be asked to show proof of Liability insurance if you stay in a marina. In my case, my agent got the policy. The link is to the First Timers Guide to Mexico which is an excellent resource.

Re: Mexico passengers and crew spreadsheet

Very interesting thread!
I harken back to when I did deliveries for members of the 91 day yacht club from outside the 3 mile limit off both LA and San Diego. No one had to fuss over all this paperwork other than insurance from a Mexican company. No TIP, no documentation except a bill of sale for the vessel fro a previous owner or broker, fishing licenses for all on board which was usually me and one other crew.
The deliveries were made on behalf of absentee owners trying to duck the CA state tax on purchases of big ticket items like boats. If you could prove you bought the vessel outside the state of CA by photos of a GPS, front page of a local newspaper and did not accompany the Paid skipper,(me!) then no tax problem. This was prior to the cruise port being built in Ensenada and the common stops were Marina Coral (just built at the time) or Baja Naval in the inner harbor of Ensenada where I would leave the boat until 90 days had passed, then bring another delivery down and pick up the one I had dropped off 3 months previous. It was a sweet little business and rarely was I out overnight.
Sweet little business but I understand paper work and tax laws have all changed over the years!
Phil
