Re: [tfyoung] Vehicle Registration vs Title

Couple of things.... relying on 2004 data is questionable so you are smart to inquire.

It sounds like your vehicle has a lien and you are trying to skirt the 'OK letter' for Mexico. But what about your lien holder who may not wanting 'their' vehicle to be taken into Mexico? And don't forget to get Mexican car insurance... available online from many sources.

To the point: yes, a Registration card is still acceptable to Mexico to get a Temporary Import Permit (TIP) ... a title is not required. The name on the Registration card is the only person who may get the TIP. Also, one can get the TIP online and have it delivered to one's home before leaving. Delivered mucho pronto via FedX or DHL etc. This would eliminate any doubt whether you could get one for your vehicle. And actually a tourist card can be obtained online too (but I believe one must still stop at the border to have holy-water passed over it).

Laredo is still a highly used border crossing point for those whose city-of-origin makes that area a desirable choice. Use International Bridge II which is 'straight ahead at the end of I35). Thousands weekly use it so it must be OK... I used it a couple of weeks ago.

Information about getting a TIP:

Online TIP website: click on Ingles if this doesn't get you there anyway
Part of this online process will send you right away to another site for "Pre-Authorization". One must do this to continue.
There is a mandatory refundable deposit of $400 for your newer car. Credit card (and the name on the card must match the name on the Registration)

Online Tourist Card:
