«LA CONEXIÓN MEXICANA Winter 2011 Volume XXVII Number 4 In this issue: Message from President Cynthia Ponder.......... 2 Wagonmaster 2012 ...»

-- [ Page 2 ] --

There are several types of vehicle insurance available in Mexico, The only one required is liability. But make sure you are fully covered. Never on one of our rallies, but several members have been involved in accidents after leaving rallies. It was never their faults but being well covered was important. Remember that even small fender benders around town in your car can be issues as well. In Mexico, Napoleonic law is the way things are handled. THIS MEANS YOU ARE GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT. It is very different, scary, and serious for those who have always had the opposite form of judicial and legal system.

This is not to scare you. Well only into making sure you get adequate insurance coverage.

Jim and I were involved in such a minor incident in a small town in Mexico. Often the way these are handled are with cash on the spot and with no police involvement (three men in the car, three hundred pesos in bills, I took pictures of the damage, plus the license plate and we were on our way). That cost us about $50 US dollars for a broken mirror on a pick-up truck. It would have cost the same in the US.

Maybe even more.

Oh, often the request for a "street" settlement is in US dollars. I always carry a minimum of $150.00 in $20.00 and $10.00 bills. They stay tucked away in my hidden place for just such an occasion. We never have used them as these men accepted pesos.

In Puerto Peñasco the economy runs on US dollars along with peso's in most places. So you should have pesos for purchases in smaller shops and for the fun of learning how to use the currency but US dollars and sometimes even a credit card are accepted there.

For those who have not traveled often in Mexico, credit cards are only accepted in larger more established business who cater to international customers in most instances. This does not include grocery stores in most locations. So, plan ahead.

Cynthia Ponder, President

TERMINATION OF THE RALLY: All Chapter 8 Rallies terminate at our destination in Mexico. When we approach the last scheduled days of the rally, individuals will post a schedule and route that they propose to travel after the end of the rally and welcome other rally participants to join them by signing a list. These groups are normally limited to a reasonable number of rigs. Some continue their travels in Mexico and others return to the United States. We do not recommend anyone travel by themselves in Mexico. The support received by traveling companions during times of difficulty can turn an emergency into a routine problem. Besides, it’s a lot more enjoyable sharing new experiences with others. Remember not to exceed the issue period of your Tourist Card.

LEAVING MEXICO: Drive directly through the Mexican Border Control Station if you are not turning in any documents.

Church’s book has every border crossing identified with details on traffic control and ease of crossing.

You have the option to turn in your Tarjeta de Turista (Tourist Card) to any Migratión (Immigration) Office and Importacion Temporal de Vehiculos (Temporary Vehicle Import Permit) to any Banjercito before you cross the border.

Remember that you must turn in these two documents before they expire or you will have difficulty and/or pay a fine in order to return to Mexico at any time, including that flying vacation to Cancun.

Turning in the Tourist Card is as simple as handing it to the Official on duty in the Migratión Office. You do not get a receipt.

The vehicle with hologram sticker still attached and the original paper Temporary Vehicle Import Permit the hologram came on must be returned to the Banjercito. The Banjercito Official will personally go to your vehicle, remove the hologram sticker, match it to the vehicle’s VIN, replace it on the paper Permit, and return to the office. Be sure to get a printed receipt showing that you have returned your Vehicle Import Permit and that it is cancelled. Hold this receipt until your next visit. Receipt should include hologram and visa ENTERING THE UNITED STATES: Drive to and stop at the US Border Control Station using the designated RV lane or, if no RV lane, any of the auto lanes no matter what type of rig you have. Be aware that some auto lanes do not have enough clearance to drive your rig through so choose wisely. Do not use the commercial lanes. Be prepared for long lines and an extended wait. There is a lot of construction in progress.

These documents are required in order to comply with US Immigration and Customs laws.

A. A passport for each person. The only proof of citizenship acceptable to US Customs is a passport. A birth certificate will no longer be used to establish citizenship. Non US citizens must comply with US host regulations for their country of origin.

B. An original Vehicle Registration Certificate for each vehicle.

C. Proof of vehicle insurance.

Be prepared to be pulled over, questioned, and inspected by US Customs officials. There is normally an area set aside for you to park your rig. Follow the official’s directions. Read the US Customs handout which lists all the prohibited items and those items which can be imported only in limited quantities. This handout can be obtained at any US Customs Office. We have found that giving the officials a written list of items purchased in Mexico is helpful. If you still have any of the prohibited items, they will be confiscated and disposed of. Do not try to hide anything. If you have any items requiring duty, they should be declared and paid for at the office at each border station. Do not lie or be evasive when you answer their questions and this is not the opportunity to be funny. These rules are strictly enforced!

You may have to sign a form if something is taken from you depending on the article. The form is the receipt of their taking it.

Do not bring plants of any kind into Mexico even dried as they may be confiscated on way back in if they are also found in Mexico.
