Hello all,
I searched the forum but didn't find any thing about an expired TIP on a vehicle.  
 I had gotten a TIP online in October 2019 for the winter season  to take my 5th wheel  to Mazatlan.   However.... on the way to the Mexican border, we had to come home to deal with some personal issues.  I had to stay in Canada until Feb, 2020. We were going to head back down and then the Covid hit. Decided to deadhead back to the border and get the TIP removed and come back.
The talk of closing the borders was ramping up and we decided to stay at home until we knew what was going on.


So.... long story short, our truck TIP is expired but still on the window.
My question is ,.... has anyone ever taken a vehicle back to Km 21 to get an expired TIP removed?


I E-mailed Banjercito and told them about the problem and they said to just go down and get it removed.
Sounds easy.....but, I'm wondering if I may have to pay a heavy fine or have my truck confiscated because of the expired TIP. 


I would like to get an idea of what may happen when I go to the kiosk at Km 21 on the way down and attempt to get the TIP removed and then apply for a new one.
Has anyone ever dealt with a similar problem?  


Lesson learned.  Thank you.  Pepe

I have never turned on in in 50 years. I just scrape them off and apply for new ones.

Hmmm. Interesting. I thought that the TIP would be in their data base and unless returned before your 180 days, you would not get another one.   I guess what I could do is to get down to Arizona and sit in an rv park for a month and apply for a TIP online , and if I get it , well,  I guess I'm good to go.

I don't think you will have an issue.  The vehicle left Mexico and with all the closures due to the pandemic I just don't see a problem

Thats what I was kinda hoping for but you never know. Anyway, I  suppose when the time comes I'll just give it a try and hope for the best. 


I'll take a copy of the banjercito e-mail and see what happens. Now I just have to wait and see what happens at the Canada U.S. border.


Thanks for the replies.

They will not check the data base.

Actually Bartmanaz, the truck never made it into Mexico. I 've still got the sticker on the window. If I had gone into Mexico I would have had the sticker removed at he Km 21 kiosk when we left. We were to far from the border to go and get it removed . We had to get back to Canada as quick as possible. Maybe a good thing with regards to the Covid order closures but not so good for sticker removal.

Bullshipper, ... I hope you're right. I read so many threads about the expired TIP, but none of them pertain to the covid border closures. I guess I'll find out in Oct. I'll post a followup in case someone else has the same kind of problem. Maybe give someone a heads up.

Many stories on the internet about not being able to get a new TIP until you return the old one. But no personal experience. I turned one in late about 10 years ago, but it was before they were requiring a "bond" that was refundable if you returned it in time. I returned it a year or so after it had expired. Just didnt want to be denied the next time I applied for one.

Did you pay the bond and lose it?

I have also read stories about persons who paid the bond IN CASH and when they went to turn back in the TIP, they said that they didn't have the cash for the refund. The lesson relayed on the internet was always pay for the bond with a credit card.

Actually, I dont believe you'll know if the restriction is still in effect unless you apply for a new one BEFORE you turn in the old one. Otherwise, we wont know if there is a special exemption for Covid.

Hook,   yes I paid the bond , but that is gone after I missed turning the TIP in before 180 days. I  think I will go to Amado AZ. and hang out for a month and apply for the TIP online and see if I can get it. Thats nice and close to the border. If I get it we're good to go. If not I will probably stay in the free zone and see how that works.

Why stop in the US??? Drive to the Mexican Border Station 21 below Nogales with your vehicle and Car registration showing that its paid off and currently registered, walk into the office and get your tip.

This is a 5 minute slam dunk. You are worrying about nothing imo.

Really depends on who you get. I didn't turn one in, sold the car to a friend in San Carlos, and they were going to turn it in when they went north. They decided they didn't want to turn it in, because there were a few cars in line, in front of them. So I had to pay to bring another car in. Gave up $400 for that little snafu.

Bullshipper, I haven't cancelled my original TIP. My truck would show up as still in Mexico. Banjercito website says if you don't cancel yourTIP on time you. " may" get your truck impounded. Thats why I would rather apply for the new TIP in the States. If They won't give me a new one at least I wouldn't run the risk of getting my truck impounded .
