On Friday, December 30, I returned my Temporary Import Permit (car sticker) for my mini-van at the Puente Colombia crossing, about 20 miles north of N. Laredo. I used the drive-up kiosk and never left my vehicle.
Looking at old credit card records, I had paid total of US$258.39, withdrawn from credit card, which included all fees and deposits. On-line service was fast, with my Permit arriving the next day, by Fed Ex. All Temporary Import Permits must be returned at the border and CAN NOT be returned on-line or at the Mexican Consulates in the USA.
On Monday, Jan.2, my credit card account was credited with $206.46. The difference was the total cost of the permit, including all fees and currency fluctuations.
Of course, getting Permit in person, at the border, would have eliminated some fees, like Fed Ex.
Feliz viaje, David
