I have been getting some conflicting information on this topic, so reaching out.

Is a temporary or permanent resident status required for a foreigner to buy and title/register a car in Mexico? We know someone that has a moto, but he only had to show evidence of his property in Mexico in order to register it. Maybe it is different for cars and motos???

We own property and would really like to get a car. Is property ownership enough or do we need resident status to register a car in Zihua?

Thank you!

We own property, but just visit on a tourist visa. We also own a car titled in our name in the state of Guerrero with plates. .

We bought a car from an acquaintance and registered it in my name with no issue. If I recall, I took a cfe bill but I’m not sure they looked at it. Several friends have done the same. It’s always and adventure renewing with my Spanglish.

Thank you!! Sounds similar to what we needed to set up a bank account.
