Re: Mextrek 6 Ride Reports and Pics

I doubt they will allow different document addresses at the consulate. You will probably have to update that title/registration.

The title, vehicle registration and insurance all have the same address. But I have a driver's license with a different address, do you think that will be a problem?

Yes, they usually will not listen to explanations. They require all addresses and names to match (no nicknames).

Yikes - it was all fine when I did it online last time (probably because they didn't require Driver License). Anybody have any experience of just going through? I live in NYC and they don't do Vehicle Permits at this Consulate because nobody drives to Mexico. The guy at the Visa window told me to just skip the Banjercito and ride on in....

Re: Mextrek 6 Ride Reports and Pics

I did it in 30 min at the Houston consulate, but you have to call (a Mexican # which I don't have anymore) and make an appointment 1st and you need to do somethings on-line prior to your appointment.

There was some great info earlier in this thread... here are some excerpts that may help:

Here is a great walk through for how to get the FMM document online:
https://www.bajabound.com/before/permits/visa.php -- link provided by Baja Bound insurance.

Here is the official Mexican Government site where you apply for the FMM permit:
https://www.inm.gob.mx/fmme/publico/en/solicitud.html

Here is a great walk through for how to get the TVIP document online:
https://www.mexpro.com/mexico/vehicl...rt-permit.html

Here is the official Mexican Government site where you apply for the TVIP permit:

So if you see an inspection point, you just going to ride on through?,

Thanks so much. No hiccups last time when I did it online, perhaps this time they'll understand. Technically, the website doesn't say you need to bring the driver license - so maybe I just show up with a passport. Anyway -one of my buddies is a superstar over at the Houston Mexican consulate for business reasons so we're going to see what he can get done.

If you have papers including some sort of visa pre authorization number obtained online, the tvip pallets take 15 minutes. Have photocopies of everything. Passport title etc.... I used Houston consulate no problems.

To answer your original question, I frequently ride dirty (no TVIP, no tourist card and actually no valid passport). It is a risk, by the letter of MX law you could have your vehicle confiscated on the spot. So ask yourself "do you feel lucky"? I would never recommend anyone to do it. It's a risk the bike owner needs to make himself and fully accept the consequences. The VISA window guy's advise will not protect or save you.

During my 2 week trip last month (not Mextrek) I encountered 7 checkpoints. Once by military, once by "Special Investigators", once by police and four standard immigration checkpoints. Only basic questions asked and on my way except one immigration stop I had to open all my luggage. Never once asked for any documentation for myself or vehicle. YRMV

A video of our Mextrek adventure, edited down to six minutes. I never ran the GoPro from the handlebars before, a little jittery through the rough stuff, but not too bad.
I've been avoiding Mextrek photos & videos for a couple of months. I wish I could have made it. Awesome video! Thanks
