Guatemala border minimum time

Post New Topic

I am going to the Guatemala border to renew my tourist visa in my car.
My question has to do with a minimum time stay in Guatemala.
For example, I used to renew my Costa Rican tourist visa by going to Nicaragua, but Nicaraguan border officials weren’t letting people cross back into CR right away. People would have to wait anywhere between 3 hours to 3 days (depending on the official)
I’m wondering if anyone has experienced anything like this at the Guatemalan border.
Thanks a lot!

There are facilitators/expediters working the border. For a fee, they can help you renew everything in an hour.

What if you fly to Guatemala and then fly back?

I don't know about flying. I did drive to Guatemala last week and was able to stamp into and stamp out of Guatemala all in 5 minutes time.

And no problems getting a new FMM from Mexico? With a new TIP?

I got the new 180-day FMM and 180-day car permiso. Is TIP "Permiso de Importación Tempora de Vehículos?"

Yes, it is the temporary importation, or Importada Temporal.

Can you ride a bus from Jalisco to the Guatemala border and do the turn around on foot?

A tourist with a car must take the car out with him before the tourist permit expires. Then, both may re-enter, get a new FMM and TIP for another 180 days, at the discretion of the border agents. It is not an entitlement and is not guaranteed.
An expat with a Residente Temporal Visa may leave his foreign plated car behind when leaving Mexico by any means of transportation.

I only crossed the Mexico - Guatemala border once near Tapachula, Chiapas. The Mexican border guys wanted me to take out a new FMM to do that. I didn't. We paid 5 pesos for a raft ride across the river under the aduana bridge. It's all in plain site with some rafts piled 8 feet high with products to resale but the aduana ignores it.
