car import issue

Can't Post | Private Reply
Due to a comedy of errors, we find ourselves in Mexico far from the border with an illegal car -- i.e., no import sticker. We do have Mexican car insurance and Residencia Temporal cards.Is there any way of going to a customs office (such as Lazaro Cardenas) and getting the import permit? Or will we need to return to the border? Any and all help appreciated.

Rolly is correct. You might consider going to Guatemala or Belize if you are far into Mexico. When you are ready to make the trip get a Returno Seguro.

Or, possibly, apply online and have the paperwork and sticker FedEx'd to you.

Okay, that is useful info. But what is an SAT office? I have never heard of it.

SAT, the Tax Administration Service, Mexico's nearest equivalent to the I.R.S. of the U.S.

I just finished Nationalizing and getting Guanajuato plates for my 2000 Ford F150 in a total of 11 business days for a total cost of USD1523. I did this without a trip to the border, which is costly and time consuming, not to mention the the danger involved with traveling near the border. I contacted Oscar Angulo email ancomercial@hotmail.com all of our contact was through email. He will give you a list of the things he needs for the Aduana (customs). 8 business days after I emailed him the documents and the pictures of the truck he needed and deposited his total fee of USD1450 (includes Aduana fees) into the Bank account he gave me I received via courier the documentation from Aduana to get my Guanajuato plates. It took three trips to the Renta (DMV) to get the plates (total of 4 hours for the 3 trips). The plates cost USD73 for 1 year) I did a lot of research into the Nationalization process before finding Mr. Angulo. I highly recommend his services.
