Extending TIP after receiving Temporary Resident VISA

by Jenn @, Thursday, January 07, 2021, 14:11 (17 days ago)

Hi:

I have read the previous posts on this subject but I don't see any resolutions so I thought I would ask.

I just received my Temporary Resident Visa in Zihua. I was told by Banjercito when I got my TIP to go to the local SAT office to get an extension on my TIP once I received my Temporary Resident Visa. THE SAT office in Zihua is closed so went to Aduana at airport. Like a previous poster I was told to drive the car back to the border. Has anyone gone to Aduana at Lazaro Cardenas? Has anyone gone to a different location and had success? I only have until Jan 14. I got delayed getting my Temporary Resident Visa due to the office being closed from Dec 23 to Jan 4. Anyone that has successfully done this please help.

I do understand that the TIP is still valid but I don't want to lose my deposit. Thanks so much!

No one we know has had any success.

You might be able to challenge the forfiture of the deposit with your credit card account holder.

Talley Ho so the way I understand it is that my current TIP which shows 30 day validity automatically gets extended to my 1 year immigration status but I lose my deposit. What happens when you go through a checkpoint and they ask for the TIP? It will show as expired on the original TIP paperwork. How does everyone handle that? Someone said that in the TIP somewhere its says that the TIP is automatically extended with an immigration status change but I'm not fluent in spanish yet so I don't know where that is in the TIP. Thanks for your help! Any info you can give is greatly appreciated. This is all so new to me:)

Fortunately you won't be asked to show the paperwork for your TIP.

If you activate your e mail account, I'll send you more information.

The TIP is valid for the length of your residency permit. It does not matter what is on the paperwork. When you renew the residency permit you should be able to renew for 3 years, the balance of the 4 year requirement. The TIP will then be valid for that length of time. I have done it.

In 8 years of living in Mexico I have never been asked to show the TIP, registration or proof of insurance - only Pesos and off you go!

Exactly!!!!

The only issue is the return of the deposit, and again, that is likely best taken up with the credit card issuer.

I spent about 3 months trying to do this with no success, I resigned myself to just have a copy of the law section stating that the TIP is good with the length of temporal residente. The only thing I have not tried is physically going to Mexico City office. Not going there due to pandemic...I did DHL a request with all paperwork to Mexico City, but never got a response.

We have never been asked for TIP verification for the 6 months we have been here and during our trip down here.

Although the issue is a tad different, in 2006 our car was stolen in Zihua, recovered a few days later, but totaled beyond repair, as agreed by our Mexican insurer, Qualitas. It took 7 months to finally get an insurance pay-out, but much longer to navigate the Mexican bureaucracy to obtain a cancellation of the Temporary Import Permit (TIP). After about 18 months, I was able to obtain the mailing address of the right department at Aduana in Mexico City, send them all the documents, photos, complete their forms, etc., etc.....and get an official certificate confirming the cancellation of my TIP, for the vehicle that was an insurance write-off 18 months earlier.

(During that 18 month delay, we tried to enter Mexico with another vehicle, but were initially denied entry because: "Señor, you still have a vehicle in Mexico." I had ALL the paperwork, photos, insurance write-off cheque, etc with me to support my contention that the original vehicle no longer existed, but to no avail: they insisted we could only deal with Aduana in Mexico City. Fortunately, since our vehicles are always registered in both my and my wife's name, we simply applied for a TIP for the "new" vehicle under my wife's name. The alternative would have been a 3000 mile trip back home. Ah, Mexico!)

When we first built Casa Amarilla, our partners brought down an old Jeep station wagon. Although we hooked it up to a trickle charger and put that preservative into the gas tank, when we came back down in 6 months or so, it would give us all kinds of problems. Word got around that we were planning on driving it back to California and this Mexican gentleman showed up and offered to buy it. I told him that it was not legally possible to transfer a foreign registered vehicle to a Mexican citizen. He said: "Don't worry about it, I can fix it." I got the money, he got the key and we never heard a word. If we want to go somewhere, we hire a local. No worries about crappy parking and crazy drivers, we can enjoy the view enroute and a local gets some money.
