Is your Vehicle Illegal in Mexico?


I have received a number of questions, including a panicked message from my sainted mother, regarding the new vehicle importation laws for ex-pats. After developing a near migraine headache trying to unravel the information myself, I turned to Solomon Freimuth at for advice. He very kindly wrote a post on the subject, wherein he outlines what the new importation regulations mean for foreign residents in Mexico.

Incidentally, his site is a great resource for legal questions regarding living in Mexico and we recommend it in our new recommended resources page. Speaking of which: if you have any online Mexico resources you think we should check out, hit me up.
