Process for taking an illegal US car out of Mexico?

Can't Post | Private Reply
Hello all, I know someone has this exact info at their fingertips. I know there is a temporary permission you can get in order to take your car out of the country, I just don't know the details.

Thanks in advance!

Basically, anything more up to date than this article from 2003?

Or should that information still hold?

Google translation:


"Santo Tomás , BCS checkpoint to detect and seize vehicles "chocolates"

Decentralized Administration Staff Audit of Foreign Trade North Pacific (Adacepn) initiated the seizure of vehicles of foreign origin in an operational review installed up to the village of Santo Tomas in the south of the municipality.

That began operating this week and have already made several vehicle seizures over four days.

Adacepn is part of the Tax Administration Service (SAT) and has the authority to conduct such reviews to verify the legal import, possession or stay in the national territory of cars."

I have removed many illegal cars from Mexico. Yuca post is mostly correct. You need a returno seguro to legally drive the car out of Mexico. The paperwork is obtained in DF.

Thanks, but could you clarify the last sentence?

Does that mean you go to your closest SAT office, submit your paper work, and they send it to DF, which explains the 4 day turnaround? Then you'd go pick up the permit at that same local SAT office 4 days later?

Or do you have to send the documents to DF? And then how do you get your permit?

Or do you actually have to go to DF, which would require two trips? One to submit the docs, and one to pick up your permit?

Yucalandia posted the current procedures (2015) right after they were published, and then posted real-world experiences of people using the Retorno Seguro program.

Here's a current link that answers your good questions:

I haven't gotten a returno seguro (RT) since SAT changed their procedures, so I might not be totally accurate. It is not an easy process anymore.

Nothing is done locally, applications for RT's are done in DF. There is a 4-6 week processing turnaround. Once the RT is issued you have 5 business days to get out of Mexico.

Where are you located?

edit: Yuca post answers your questions,

Well dammit!

Thanks for the info guys. I'm in San Miguel de Allende. It's kind of a long story, but we've signed a contract on a new apartment, and were expecting to move in around the 8th of July. The couple we're renting from were expecting to drive their van up to Seattle, but apparently the van is here illegally, and they just now looked into the process of getting this permit, and found out the new procedure which y'all have just alerted me to. So instead they're going to fly out a week later, which is rather a big inconvenience for us. I was hoping it would be an easy thing for them to get the returno, but I guess that's not the case. :(
