Border Closed to Import of Vehicles

Post by Halfglass on Fri Feb 27, 2015 7:21 pm

Has anyone heard of the border being closed to importation of vehicles from the north?
I have been talking to a broker in Nogales and he has written me they have put a hold on all imports of vehicles.

Where have you been? Importation/Nationalization by individuals has been a dead issue for months. Maybe it is forever; nobody knows.
However, if you are a tourist, or a residente temporal visa holder, you may temporarily import, as usual. Those who have residente permanente visas are having to remove their US/Canadian vehicles from Mexico.

Friend of mine just got back from Laredo, he called Grupo MCA and they are nationalizing ES/Canadian cars up to 2007.

The total border is not closed to imports. Salinas Imports in Pharr has been importing 06-07 cars for over a month. If you meet the requirements then it is SOP.

I just returned today after taking another USA car out of Mexico. I spoke with a couple of brokers in Nogales and TJ. They are waiting for things to open up. It is only the border crossings in the Western part of MX that aren't importing. That is where the customs brokers, Aduana officials, and Judges that issued the amaparo's (all of them for mordida)got busted last September.

Many thanks. That should clear up some of the confusion; including mine.
Is it just 2006-07 vehicles?
