Extending 180 day FMM Visas

It is possible to do that here in Zihuatanejo. I know three people that are/have done it successfully. One couple mistakenly thought they could buy their permanent residency here in the country. Nope. They paid the fines for overstaying their 180 days last June, 4,500 pesos each. She went in again in January to get another extension. It was possible, but the cost again was 4,500 pesos including fines. She did not renew her permit, I don't know what they plan to do. A friend's 180 day permit expired yesterday. Last week she went to Immigration and asked about what to do, nicely. They required her to provide 6 months worth of bank statements, and told her to return today, the day after the permit expired, and told her that since she was getting renewed due to "Humanitarian" reasons, the cost was 2,100 pesos. She was shown a list of fees for various reasons. She just returned, it worked. So, what does it all mean? At least here you can renew your 180 day FMM for a price, which is flexible. A friends son lost his FMM (and passport) and had to pay the fine in Mexico City before flying out. The cost was the standard 600 pesos.

RE: Border crossings about to get even worse

This is old news, and an old US president. It has not been implemented at this point in time, and although I read the Los Angeles times every day, it's the first I've read of it. We have a couple of members who cross very regularly, even with cargo trailers, and so far, nothing.

RE: The weight issue again

That is something that I think many of us forget to do: Thank the less than friendly people who are just doing their jobs. None of us like to be put through the mill, but it's part of crossing a border. We are so fortunate that crossing is as easy as it is. My sweetie always took out his earrings, we approached the border without sunglasses, passports out the window and remembering to only answer questions that were asked. That was always hard for me. I also had the pet paperwork in my hand but didn't offer it unless asked. They have a tough job that I would not be willing to do. They are trying to protect us.

RE: The weight issue again

For many many years we stopped there going south or north. Once we got rousted by rude customs agents that seemed to think that we hadn't entered the US legally. Besides that, until we moved here (Zihuatanejo) permanently, that was our crossing of choice. If Gringo Pass, the name of the RV park that may not be open now, and I think it isn't, the National Park without hookups at Organ Pipe National Park is very well situated, is in a fabulous, scenic location and only about 8 miles north of the border. Honestly, it's one of the best places to cross the border either way. Yes, you need to consider not crossing on a weekend if you are going north, and in the long past, pet paperwork going south, but it was our go to crossing for almost 30 years. It gets a vote from us!!! Moderator

RE: Baja Trip In 2022

I contacted a "Vagabundos" located in Rio Vista, Calif. for information , brochures on traveling to Baja, mexican insurance. They also organize and lead travel groups to Baja. You will need a document from your bank giving you permission to take your RV into Mexico/Baja unless you have your RV paid off. Strongly suggest you buy your vehicle insurance BEFORE you cross the border. Look up Oscar Padellia mexican insurance, I think you can buy it over the phone. DO NOT drive into Baja/mexico with out insurance. It could turn into a nightmare if you get into a collusion or accident. Do see the "stickie" at the top of the main page about insurance.

RE: US to require COVID Testing for International Flyers

Normally Covid discussions are moved to Around the Campfire, but I think there has been enough said on this subject until new information is received.

RE: RV Painting in Mexico

We too had an excellent paint job on our RV in an RV park in Mazatlan. Took a week and was fabulous. I too doubt that anyone would consider coming to the US, even if they could legally enter, to do the job. If nothing else, the paints that they use aren't legal in the US, often. What's the big deal about buying insurance? It's not expensive.

RE: US to require COVID Testing for International Flyers

As I understand it, the prevention to crossing borders is not leaving a country, but entering another.

RE: US to require COVID Testing for International Flyers

Here in Zihuatanejo all of the tests are being done by private labs, of which there are several, it's not the government doing the testing. So far there is one hotel in Ixtapa that supposedly is paying for the Covid test for those returning that need it. I haven't been able to verify that. The tests here are running 4000 pesos and more, but that is bound to drop soon. On another note, the word for those that have air evacuation that includes Covid coverage for Canadians is interesting. Again, I can't verify this, but people are posting on the Zihuatanejo message board that in order to be air evacuated to Canada with Covid you have to receive advance permission from the province to be allowed to return.

RE: US to require COVID Testing for International Flyers

It's an interesting, terrible, world. Hopefully we can all stay safe and not make others ill by our own movements, intentions or whatever. Stay safe everyone.

RE: US to require COVID Testing for International Flyers

I have wondered about testing in any form for any purpose for about the same reason. Realize that I read the Los Angeles Times daily, but don't have a television so don't watch the news. If I were to have a test today that came out negative and made me "safe" to board an airplane or whatever, what would keep me from being exposed to Covid on my way out of the testing site and be contagious in a few days??? I must be missing something here.

RE: US to require COVID Testing for International Flyers

My curiosity question is in regards to those who have paid for air evacuation services. IF you test positive for Covid, you are not supposed to be allowed on a plane to the US or Canada after certain dates. So, what about your evacuation service that you paid for? Just stirring the pot here.

US to require COVID Testing for International Flyers

RE: New Canada Border regs.

Here is the response I got about 8 hours later. Still not much help. Remember the question was regarding a Canadian citizen who lives part time in Mexico, driving a Mexico plated vehicle who wants to return home to Canada. CBP Information Center Fri 1/8/2021 1:48 PM Thank you for contacting the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Information Center. In order to limit the further spread of the Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19), on March 21, 2020, the United States reached an agreement with both Canada and Mexico to limit all non-essential travel across land borders. U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, and certain other travelers are exempt from this action when entering the United States. Notification of Temporary Travel Restrictions Applicable to Land Ports of Entry and Ferries Service Between the United States, Canada, and Mexico: Canada: https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2020/10/22/2020-23394/notification-of-temporary-travel-restrictions-applicable-to-land-ports-of-entry-and-ferries-service Mexico: https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2020/10/22/2020-23392/notification-of-temporary-travel-restrictions-applicable-to-land-ports-of-entry-and-ferries-service These measures were originally implemented on March 21, 2020 and have been extended by 30 day increments throughout the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. The updates for these measures will be available here: https://www.dhs.gov/news/2020/10/19/fact-sheet-dhs-measures-border-limit-further-spread-coronavirus. The following travel does not fall within the definition of “essential travel”: • Individuals traveling for tourism purposes, such as sightseeing, recreation, gambling, or attending cultural events in the United States. “Essential travel” includes, but is not limited to: • U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents returning to the United States. • Individuals traveling for medical purposes (e.g., to receive medical treatment in the United States). • Individuals traveling to attend educational institutions. • Individuals traveling to work in the United States (e.g., individuals working in the agriculture industry who must travel between the United States and Canada or Mexico in furtherance of such work). • Individuals traveling for emergency response and public health purposes (e.g., government officials or emergency responders entering the United States to support federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial government efforts to respond to COVID-19 or other emergencies). • Individuals engaged in lawful cross-border trade (e.g., truck drivers supporting the movement of cargo between the United States, Canada, and Mexico). • Individuals engaged in official government travel or diplomatic travel. • Individuals engaged in military-related travel or operations. This action does not apply to air, freight rail, or sea travel at this time, but does apply to commuter rail and ferry travel. CBP officers at ports of entry make the determination of whether a traveler is admissible to the United States, taking into account the totality of the traveler’s circumstances. Travelers should contact the port they plan on traveling through, if they have a case-specific question.

Boy, that's not much help. I posted with CBP on January 3, and have yet to receive a reply.
