New Requirements for Bringing Foreign-Plated Cars into Mexico: Banjercito
Posted on June 17, 2011 by yucalandia

The Mexican Ministry of Finance and Public Credit has issued a new decree affecting expats bringing foreign plated cars into Mexico: “New Requirements for Bringing Foreign-Plated Cars into Mexico: Banjercito”. From the Banjercito website:

“IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT
The Ministry of Finance and Public Credit (SHCP) has issued a decree which states that beginning on June 11th, 2011 anyone applying for a temporary import permit for vehicles must make a deposit in the amount determined by the following table:

Vehicle Year Model:…….Amount to be paid in Mexican Pesos*
2007 and later…….USD $400
2001 until 2006…….USD $300
2000 and earlier…….USD $200

*Peso amounts are based on applicable exchange rate

This deposit is compulsory and can be paid by credit card, debit card, or cash (in US Dollars only).

Users must keep in mind that if the deposit is charged to a credit card, the charge will be made in Mexican Pesos and will be calculated based on the exchange rate of the day on which the payment is made. This deposit will be refunded to the same credit card on the next banking business day after the vehicle is fully returned and based on the exchange rate of that day.

The vehicle must be returned on time and within the time period stated on the temporary import permit. If the vehicle is returned after the stated time period, the entire deposit amount will be transferred to the Office of the Treasury on the day following the expected return date, as allowed by current law.”


Last Item:
Another clause in the new updated regulations requires FM2 Rentista and FM3 holders to notify Aduana within 15 days of when they renew their FM2 or FM3, otherwise Aduana is allowed to confiscate/keep these “new” deposits. Aduana’s address is listed in Yucalandia’s main article on cars in Mexico: “Importing & Driving a Car in Mexico”

* * * *
This post is meant as a public service announcement (not meant as legal advice), so, we here at Yucandia will keep the post updated with further understandings and clarifications as they develop.

'Noise quenching' curtains open window to quietPost by dean on Thu Jun 02, 2011 11:06 am
Water, I have tasted it when not brushing my teeth and it is not salty. My meter reads about 1750 ppm which is about 1000 ppm less of what we use to have. But the taste tells me it is it is lower. My meter reads correctly on bottled water about 40ppm so not sure.

bookmark this site/thread as I will add pictures and issues from time to time.

here is a picture of one of the water tanks by the shrimp factory that will have the de-sal water. you will bring your own jugs here to fill up. a real watering hole...

right now they have the de-sal hooked up to the city water, our water is good but not great, 560 ppm disolved solids. I was told by the workers the plant can do 300 cubic meters per day. that is probably about 1/2 our requirements in the summer and 1/3 when everyone is here. I was told another well will be dug for the desal plant. also they ran a three inch line to all these tanks.

here is the tank in progress picture


here is the first structure being built in the campground by a comercial business. note the total area via the orange markers.


second commercial business in the campground. not sure, coffee or taco stand. white building to the right of the gate.


the first arroyo to the north of the campground, the new concrete fence with barbwire to stop people from parking there?


and finally in parting, we had a real cloudy morning here a week or so ago, this is the sunrise...




and lastly here is my suggested air seperation piping to keep water bills low, i have a discussion of it in the water section under building in this forum.

Last week when I was not here it was reported we had a storm dump on us.   From what I see in erosion damage LaVentana received much more rain than ES.  also down near the T had a major amount of sand that none of the seasons past storms including our hurricane gave us.     But again generally in ES there are similar massive trenches and there were none visible to me in the village,  I did not check on further north that could have also had major rainfall.      my estimate in my garbage cans is 2-3 inches here at my location.

hitting dew point again.

late afternoon yesterday we had a cloud come from the San antonio direction where they had rain clouds for a few hours. We had this smaller one come and dump on is for 15 minutes or so and give us some rain. Not sure if this went to far north past the village. I did not have any empty things out to know how much rain so my guess is about 3/8 of an inch. where even at the south part of LaVentana could have received more.

Bummer in Barilles

Post by karen on Fri Sep 16, 2016 8:15 am

On Saturday or Sunday we had our blue and white Polaris Razor 4 seater stolen out of our garage in the Santa Maria area of Los Barriles. In my discussions with friends in LB It has come to light that 5 ATV's have been stolen in the past 30 days, this was verified by 2 people who had specific information on each incident. Many of you would recognize this ATV by the raggedy yellow and white comforter we had strapped to the top for shade. I am offering a $3000 reward for return of the vehicle if you have any information please contact me or Beto at LB Property Services at 6241887112 he is located right across the street from SMOKEY'S.. Thanks to All.

kiter out yesterday afternoon for a short session.    

more people in the campground now.

this morning very nice cool weather...    

mosquitos out in force  as of two days ago from the rain from the hurricane.   I have some octenol attractant so made a trap with it yesterday and it did not attract any mossys into my trap.     So today added some CO2 generation to see if that works.

forgot to mention the erosion from this hurricanes rain water was minimal., i did not even get any ruts on my property

Make sure anyone travelling adds 2+ hours to the estimate for this area. All of the major problem areas are as soon as you drop out of the mountains into Santa Rosalia and 30kms south.
Mulege and south has a few arroyos with some debris, but not an issue. Loreto is clear. Construction between Km 60 and 41 to la Paz is slow but no issues.
It is going to be some major reconstruction to Hwy 1 in Santa Rosalia for some time.


Drive slow and in the daylight! All will be good.


our road over the mountain on our side even has the lines painted on it as of this week with markers to the side. the other side LaPaz side has a lot of pot holes.

Everything was fine until we got into Santa Rosalita. Lots of mud slides and washed out arroyos. After leaving Santa Rosalita, we saw a major water line being repaired, electric lines down and many arroyos completely washed out. Workers were repairing everything as quickly as possible. There were probably 50+ trucks in each direction waiting to get through. As we were in one line for passage of an arroyo, military, red cross, and other volunteers from Loreto passed us with supplies and water (we recognized them!).


Mulege was fine except for some washed out arroyos and we couldn't tell if the power was out but we think it was. All stores were shut down. Lots of rocks fell onto the roadways but were already cleared out.


Loreto looks good.........

we are up with electric again as of noon yesterday. I added a few more pictures I found from facebook to the hurricane 2016 thread of Santa rosilia and san Ignacio who had the larger damage because of the amounts of water they had. I am amazed how accurate the rainfall predictions were, the chart the day befor showed us with 1 inch and up in loreto to san ignacio 2-8 inches.

bpe
b. Hello foreigners who own property in Baja. It’s true, some banks are getting out of the fideicomiso business and some are only getting partially out. If you are selling your property and the bank that holds your fidei will not transfer ownership, at the time of the sale you will be required to cancel your existing fidei (seller’s expense) and the buyers will have to start a new one (buyer’s expense). This can add $2,000-$3,000 total to the cost of the transaction.
Here is the current status of the major players:

HSBC
No new Fideicomisos.
Need to change banks when you transfer ownership or your existing fidei expires.

Banamex
No new Fideicomisos.
Need to change banks when you transfer ownership.
Can extend existing fidei for the original term 30 or 50 years when it expires.

Bancomer
No new Fideicomisos.
They allow assignation (Cession) of Fideicomiso rights.
Can extend existing fidei for the original term 30 or 50 years when it expires.

Banorte
No new Fideicomisos.
They allow assignation (Cession) of Fideicomiso rights.
Can extend existing fidei for the original term 30 or 50 years when it expires.

Santander
No new Fideicomisos.
They allow assignation (Cession) of Fideicomiso rights.
Can extend existing fidei for the original term 30 or 50 years when it expires.

wow read this one.....   I interpret this to be american businesses like hotels car factories and so on.

http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-mexico-idUSKCN1182PL

Mexican senator to propose anti-Trump expropriation law



A Mexican senator is proposing legislation to empower the government to retaliate if a U.S. administration led by Donald Trump inflicts expropriations or economic losses on his country to make it pay for a border wall.

Republican presidential nominee Trump has vowed to have Mexico fund the planned wall to keep out illegal immigrants if he is elected, and threatened to fund it by blocking remittances sent home by Mexicans living in the United States.

Armando Rios Piter, an opposition senator for the center-left Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD), will next week present the initiative he hopes will protect Mexicans, and highlight the risks of targeting them economically.

The plan offers a taste of the kind of tit-for-tat measures that could gain traction between the two heavily-integrated economies if Trump wins the presidency at the Nov. 8 election.

In a preliminary summary of the proposal, which also foresees giving the Senate the power to disavow international treaties when the interests of Mexico or its companies are threatened by other signatories, it states:

"In cases where the property/assets of (our) fellow citizens or companies are affected by a foreign government, as Donald Trump has threatened, the Mexican government should proportionally expropriate assets and properties of foreigners from that country on our territory."

Total remittances to Mexico from abroad - most of which come from the United States - were worth nearly $25 billion last year, according to the central bank. Bilateral trade between the two nations is worth about half a trillion dollars a year.

Trump has also threatened to tear up a trade deal with Mexico if it is not recast in the United States' favor. He met President Enrique Pena Nieto in Mexico City this week, sparking fierce criticism in Mexico of the government for hosting him.

Afterwards, Trump repeated his pledge to make Mexico foot the bill for the wall. Mexico says it will not pay.

It is yet to be established how such expropriations could work, nor is it clear what chance the bill could have of passing. The PRD and other leftist parties hold less than a quarter of the 128 seats in Mexico's Senate.

Rios Piter said his aim was to counter threats by Trump to target Mexicans in the United States and to stress that the economic welfare of both nations is at stake.

"At a time like this, it's vital for us to understand why this relationship benefits both. We're neighbors, we're friends, we're partners," he said. "He's putting (that) at risk."

The initiative also seeks to protect Mexico against unilateral changes to the 1994 North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which Trump has threatened to ditch.

Mountain road, they paved another 1/2 mile of road today. So they have roughly 2 miles left on our side of the mountain. They are working on the surface preparation on about 1 mile and the other mile is ready for paving.

the other side of the mountain is falling under dis-repair, there are a lot of pot holes.

major development in my making a static mosquito trap. Even though the number of mosquitoes is low in my area. I have caught some mosquitos 3 died and one is alive in my traps with just water. This is a major breakthrough. see some pics of it under the mosquito thread. I need to find locations in our area that have a lot of mosquitoes to do more testing.

went to LaPaz yesterday for a birthday party... road is completely paved for about 2/3 of the way up the mountain now.... and they have ripped out the last part near the top that needed to be ripped out and are preparing it. they already have the other majority prepared at the top. so it is only a matter of a short time before we have a entirely spectacular road for at least our half of the trip to LaPaz.

yesterday went snorkeling at the hotel by Pt. Arena.   To the right towards LaPaz was paved to about 100 yards from the turn off in one lane by 7pm returning.     It appeared to have two lanes done for 2/3rds of up the mountain, hard to tell but you can see the black pretty definitively.  

They  would have about 1 miles after the T towards Los Planes to do also.

road over the mountain... no run off damage from the rain.

finally they are paving a part of it. As I went into town seemed like a 1/2 mile was done and coming back 1 mile was close to being done.

those v winged flying bugs are horrendous right now, a major explosion at night where there is a light at night.

6:30am   Javier is downgraded to not be a hurricane as of this morning. but the hurricane watch has moved up to Barriles.    

I drove the san antonio road yesterday, they are close to finishing the damage in the 4-5 spots, just one spot has the road with one usable lane.   That should be open in a week.    So it is in the best condition it has been in since it was paved.

9:15 we got our first 1/8 inch of rain with 20mph winds about an hour ago.   was putting plastic on beds and was going to start putting up my rain shutters up and did not get them up in time.    no rain for an hour real cloudy.    I will post pictures and such as the time goes.

will post pictures and the info at

we have a tropical storm forming that is projected to come our way.    

also I have a site posted that has  LosPlanes for weather that looks accurate.     It also has the misery index, ie adjusted for humidity.     We are a few degrees cooler on the absolute scale at the peak heat time because of the wind at the shore.    I have this site address located on the Hurricane section.   https://www.meteoblue.com/en/weather/forecast/current/san-juan-de-los-planes_mexico_4022410

They still have not started paving the main road and just ripped out about quarter of a kilometer that needed to be removed near the top, they have about 1 k left to remove and prep near the top.     If this storm arrives before they pave it could make things really bad.    

At or near the T intersection across the street from that mini-store they have a strange small building with what looks like a weigh station ramp now.   The little one room building would be consistent with being a weigh station.     Maybe they are going to be protecting the new road from overloaded trucks?

light drizzle again this morning. 7am.

sprinkled for a few hours real light. most rain in a long time but really little. Maybe 1/8 of an inch. and cloudy and overcast all day.

The other day on the road over the mountain it was raining where I had to turn on windshield wipers. at the top where it was paved, and coming down on our side where it is not paved just a light drizzle for half the way down. I am sure that was good for the dirt compacting. No runoff but it was getting damp .

a very light rain/sprinkle in the evening, all surfaces are a bit more than damp, and a little , and mean little pubble run off.. not really measurable in the buckets sitting out and so no worries of mosquito hazards created.

the road construction on the mountain is proceeding, they are ripping up the bad parts near the top of our climb of the mountain now. they only have about 1 miles of the bad part left. No additional final paving has been started.

Very humid last night and today, tropical storm Frank is to be a hurricane in the next couple days, the bad news is it is not heading out to Hawaii like the other have, it is coming to the familiar path closer to baja.

went to costco, amazing how much big time construction on the major road on the beach side from San Jose to Costo area, counted about 7-9 major developments with huge cranes in action. Never seen so much construction going on at once down there.

The road is paved from Los Planes till about 1 mile before our turn off.

some raindrops from one of the two tropical storms... Well Blass is a hurricane as of today i think. not coming our way.

no major additional paving as of last weekend, though could see some markers being inserted that will guide the paving truck in the center of the road.

the road paving construction on the mountain road seems to go at least all the way into Los Planes to where it has the divider and street lights.

They actually paved a section yesterday between the T intersection to San Antonio towards Los Planes about half a mile. It was not paved in the morning when I went to Santiago waterfall (the kids did not have school) and when I returned about 7pm it was paved. No other paving has occurred in a month just road prep. So maybe they are entering road pave mode.

that tropical depression is making the airflow come from the mainland so super humid yesterday and today.     Still not as bad as last year can tolerate it with a fan during the day and last night had to use the AC.

it is so humid it is unreal, like being in florida in the summer... power just went off for 5 minutes.... got to test my power back up system, worked great, just for computer.

Here is a picture as you get on the road to LaPaz as you get past the T intersection.     and one up the mountain.   About 2/3 of the hill on our side is like this, it is easy to drive on this.     And as I mentioned at the top of the mountain they have paved from the eagle rock about 3 miles of the real curvy sections.    So nice up there.   I have not gone the los Planes direction to see how far they have progressed there.




you can see a section they have not dug up near the top, about 1 miles. i assume they will be doing that section as it is now really bad with pot holes.

I took some pictures of the mountain road construction today. The dirt road was actually real nice no off- side road driving. It appears they are letting us drive on it to pack it? and or they will do a massive paving at one time of 7 or so miles and counting. I will post the pictures soon.

FYI montana will not allow us to register vehicles there unless you have a address or declare yourself homeless in person.    

South Dakota has on their books that you can.

also have not been using the AC much lately. Turned it on for about 4 hours in the evening. Slept with just a fan and day was real nice too. So far only a handful of days have I needed the AC. Vs last year everyday and night in the summer.

the roadwork is now towards Los Planes (do not know how far) continued,  to about half way to 2/3 up the mountain.  They finished the 5 mile section as I noted before from the top eagle on.    and another 1 mile stretch that was bad.    They had been working on several section and looked like they were ready to pave and all the sudden now the entire section up to 2/3rds  is in process now.    

I am guessing Sat and specially Sunday are the only times to be on the road else you have a lot of work being done is my guess.

nice this morning and humid this afternoon, turned the AC on at 3pm where the last few weeks did not use it till sleep time and several nights did not need it.
