Car -how long can it stay in Mex?

Post New Topic

How long can a foreign car stay in Mexico legally? We are hoping to bring a car in for 6-8 months. Not because we need a car in Mex, but because it is the most feasiible way for us to bring our pets and the items we'll need to bring. We plan to stay 6 to 8 months and then return in the car to Costa Rica. Can anyone shed some light on the best way to accomplish this (meaning accomplish legally letting a car stay as a tourist)? Links to government websites also appreciated. Thank you!

I should also mention the car will not be coming down from the states, but rather entering Mexico from Central America,

a tourist you may bring a foreign plated car into Mexico for up to 6 months. You will get your permit at the border.

Certain areas of Mexico do not require the permit and people have kept their cars there for years. Where are you headed to?

i assume that means a car can stay 6 months at a time? you can bring the car in again, at some future time on a future trip?

That's great news. Thanks so much! Just the info I needed. As to where, don't know yet, either Oaxaca or the beaches north of Puerto Vallarta.

The Importada Temporal is actually good for up to 180 days, as is a tourist permit, and neither can be renewed in Mexico. Both can be obtained at the border from INM, immigration, and Banjercito, Aduana‘s bank. There are fees for both, and deposits for the car, from $200-$400 USD.
