Re: [mazbeach] Registration of "Nationalized" Cars

I have seen, here at MexConnect as well as other sites, that there may be some states that will not register and plate a vehicle that has been legally imported. If this is true, what is the position of the state of Veracruz? The reason I ask is because we are considering relocating from Sinaloa to Veracruz; specifically Coatepec, south of Xalapa. Registering our vehicle in Sinaloa was no problem following nationalization and I was planning to change over to Veracruz when the time comes.

I've done some digging around but have not come up with anything definitive.




We just got back from 2 weeks on the California - Mexico border and I asked about nationalizing cars there again in Mexicali. My neighbor just nationalized a US bought 2009 NAFTA Jeep Patriot there for a higher tax rate but not significantly more that I read into from chatting with him. He is a Mexican National and this is his 5th US bought car. He said he got a special plate in Baja for the Jeep, an orange part on the top for nationalized cars and a baby blue part for Mexican cars.

He also said in 6 months he can change the plates to the blue ones if he wants because it is a NAFTA built vehicle, You can import Japanese built vehicles into the Free Zone and I presume Korean and German built also. It appears to be that he could sell it to someone who could register it south of the Free Zone then.

I appears there are all kinds of exceptions in many states as to what they accept that can be legally registered in the different states.

Sinaloa seems to allow cars like the one my neighbor has and has Baja blue plates to be registered there even, 2008, 2009, 2010 cars etc. as my neighbor says he knows someone who has done it .

I then started noticing which appeared to be many newer looking 2009, 2010, 2011 vehicles with orange on the plates in Mexicali. The Nissan Altima changed their body style the last few years and were noticeable, etc. It appears to not cost that much more but did not ask my neighbor the exact cost when he said it cost him " a bit more in taxes" as this would be rude.
