Advantages and Disadvantages of Permanent Import Permits vs Temporary Import Permits:

With a permanent importation permit:
~ You can sell the car here in Mexico.
~ You can keep the car in Mexico as long as you want, regardless of INM status.
~ Mexican drivers can drive your car, without you (or some other expat) being in the car.
~ You must license the car here, and renew your State registration every year ($$).
~ You may have to pay annual State ownership taxes (tenencias $$) depending on your State’s rules.
~ You can only import 8, 9, or 10 year old NAFTA vehicles for modest import duties.
~ You pay no cash deposit when you bring the car into Mexico.
~ You do not have to go to a (non-airport) Aduana’s office every year to register your new INM permit expiration date.

With a temporary importation permit

~ You cannot sell the car here in Mexico.
~ You can only keep the car in Mexico with current & select types of INM permits.
e.g. If you change from FM2 Rentista to Inmigrado, then you cannot keep the car here on a Temporary Import Permit.
~ Mexican drivers cannot drive your car, without you (or some other expat) being in the car.
~ You do not have to license the car here, and many States do not require that you keep your foreign plates current.
~ You pay no annual State ownership taxes (tenencias $$).
~ You can import just about any car or truck.
~ You have to pay a cash deposit when you bring the car into Mexico the first time.
~ You must go to a (non-airport) Aduana’s office every year to register your new INM permit expiration date.
