Hola dear community! Does anyone have the answer to this one. Does a Mexican resident’s to bring a car from another country here in Mexico (Canada or US)? Or do we lose the privilege? Gracias in advance 😊
I understand is that if you are bringing a car from the outside, you can “Mexicanize” it, but it is usually a fairly complicated, fairly lengthy, fairly expensive procedure. Mexico City state is known for being the easiest place to “Mexicanize” your car ;-) A + Matias
Entering Mexico with a Residente Temporal permit Holders of Residente Temporal (with or without work privileges) and Residente Temporal Estudiante may import their car to Mexico using a Temporary Import Permit (TIP). The vehicle will remain legal in Mexico for so long as the TIP remains current. For details about residency permits, see our Mexico Immigration page.
