The Tip is required only if you want to travel beyond Km98 in Empalme and, I don’t know if it has anything to do with the type of vehicle. I noticed in this Manual references in every page to Aduana. It must be a joined effort between Aduana rules and the fee collecting arm of Hacienda.


I’ll see what else I can find specific to US cars in the Hassle Free Zone, while permanent.

One wrinkle in all this. I believe that Aduana is UNDER the umbrella of Hacienda, i.e., a sub agency.

This is another example of the confusion over the term TIP. ANY foreign plated vehicle needs a TIP to travel out of the hassle-free zone. It doesnt matter if your camper in bolted in or removable. This TIP is the right to drive outside the hassle free zone.

Many types of RVs, not campers, can apply for a TIP that allows them this privilege.

But any way you cut it, a foreign plated vehicle will need some type of TIP to exit the hassle-free zone.

Thanks Hook. It was the word "TIP" that was confusing to me. I simply called it a "car permit". But, I completely understand the rules and I think most people understand these rules. What we are talking about in this thread (I think) is a US plated vehicle inside the "hassle free" zone with a US citizen owner who is also a Mexican permanent resident. Some of us are looking deeper into this issue.

Google maps shows the INM office to be at the Guymas airport. Is this correct?


My understanding is that it takes about 3 weeks to finalize a Temporary Resident visa and one should not leave Mexico before the process is complete.



Does anyone have first hand knowledge for obtaining permission to return to the US before that process is complete should that become necessary?

That would be a big problem. When you came in with your visa from the consulate you were told that the visa usage was a one time only, just to get you to immigration in Guaymas, or help you cross the border. If you have an emergency or such, I suggest you go to Immigration and see what they suggest.

There used to be an immigration office at the airport. That office is no longer there.

There are still immigration officers at the airport, but just to process foreigners that arrive/depart by plane. But goldin is right, there is no "immigration office" per se. Do not try to get a tourist permit there if you forgot or couldn't get one when you crossed the border by land, or file application for resident cards.

With no place in Guymas to finalize a "Temporary Resident" visa, can someone suggest an alternate?


Would Hermosillo be the closest alternate and if so does someone know the location of the INM office there?

There IS an IMN office in Guaymas.  Your question was about an office at the airport.

I’ll give you my example. We just finished my fifth process of temporary visa for the first year. While at the immigration office I asked how to go about renewing for the next three years as we would be going on vacation in San Miguel de Allende until October 2019. We would fly from the US into SMA. My visa expires at the beginning of 10/19. I was asking if I could renew for the next 3 years in SMA. She said absolutely not. We need to renew back in GUAYMAS, there would not be a record in SMA. She also explained that once my visa expires I would not be able to request any type of permit to leave the country to fly back. I had to move my vacation by a month so that I would be able to be back in GUAYMAS for my renewal in 10/19.


This sheds a little light on cowpokes need to go to the US to wait for the 3 weeks of processing of the temporary. I’m sure they give you some type of document to justify your status while the visa processes. The question is is it enough to cross the border and back? 
I think not, but it’s worth asking at Immigration.

Since Google Maps only listed a single INM office at the Guymas Airport,  forgive me for asking the wrong question. If there is an INM office in Guymas where one can finalize a Temporary Resident visa, please provide an address. Also contact information if available.


Will be bringing a live aboard sail boat from La Paz to San Carlos and looking for the most convenient place to finalize the TR visa. La Paz is very difficult to access from Tucson while San Carlos is relatively easy.


The question regarding returning to the US while the visa is processing was asked because of pending medical appointments for the wife.



Thank you.

Cowpoke, I’m no expert with this copying and pasting but here’s a pic of the Guaymas map showing the location of the immigration office in Guaymas. Somebody said that it was in front of the Ford dealership. It’s after El Vigía shopping center on the left side of Serdan. At the entrance to the office there’s a Sixt rental office, very tiny in the same lot. You’ll see a hill on the left of the lot. Turn in there and park. They are open from 9-1pm only. If I find the number I’ll post again. I’ve learned that having the correct address does not necessarily help you. Good luck.

Ok. That did not work. I can try to email you the map if you provide access.

Sorry, the street in front of El Vigía center and immigration is called Garcia Lopez, not Serdan. Same as Hwy 15.

With your help and descriptions I was able to find it on the map. Using the search engine of Google Maps, INM only showed the airport location but when I typed the entire name it showed in the very area you described.


Thanks so much for your help. Hope we can meet up for coffee sometime.


Thanks to everyone else who replied as well.
