any advice on best way to get
TIP quickly and for sure.
coming down around June 14th.
is it ok to get it at the Maricopa crossing?
|K21, make sure you have all the paperwork and that there is no existing TIP or you will be turned back.
|I can't confirm this myself but I have been told that all functions of aduana have been moved from K21 to the main inspection station back up the road at the commercial truck inspection area. Coming south, this is just after the toll both on the Mariposa crossing road so stop there and ask before going on the K21. Assuming your boat is on a trailer, that might need a TIP as well. Make sure that your car, the trailer and the boat are all registered in your name.
|There is a banercito on Mariposa, about 4 miles in, so that would be the place to try. I hear they want a current USA registration now too.
|Do it on the internet, best way.
To all that responded, gracias.
I wanted to pass on my experience.
We did indeed get our TIP.
i first tried banjercito website. Kept getting
booted off. So then went to Mexican consulate in tucson. They said go to km 21.
We stopped at first check point immediately across border at mariposa.
They told us no and waved us on.
At the first toll booth was directed to
Aduana just past there.
At aduana was inspected twice.
Docs needed were:
Current plates on truck and trailer.
Boat ownership doc from Arizona.
All numbers on docs, boat, and trailer were
Confirmed as corresponding and current to
Numbers on boat, truck, and trailer.
Then told to go to km 21.
At km 21 got visa.
Directed to banjercito for TIP. After
hour and half wait in line,
Again had to produce all aforementioned.
The agent tried to charge me $269.00 for importing truck as well as boat. After disagreeing with him that was dismissed.
Seemed like just a mistake more than intentional.
After tip issued and visa paid for
Sent back to visa window to get stamp on visa.
Cost for TIP was $59 USD.
no inspection at km 21.
Just thorough exam of docs.
