      Hola! My suegra and I are traveling to Merida on June 1st 2011 and will be there for a week before going to isla mujeres. She is planning to retire in Merida in a few months, and we have done lots of internet research on the steps you need to take. While in Merida in June, we would like to tour the different neighborhoods and some furnished rental homes as she would like to rent for a year before buying a home. Do you know of any agencies or tour guides (on a budget) that will take us around. Also she would like to see or get information on hospitals and doctors. Please send me any information you have. Thank you!

      when I ENTERED MEXICO AT CUIDAD ACUNA (del rio,tx) I HAD MY FM3 STAMPED AT IMMIGRATION, I ASKED IF I NEEDED ANYTHING FOR MY CAR (LIKE AN IMPORTATION STICKER THAT I GOT WHEN I ENTERED WITH A TOURIST VISA OTHER YEARS) AND I WAS TOLD NO..I DIDN’T NEED AN IMPORTATION STICKER WITH AN FM3. WE PASSED THRU SEVERAL MILITARY AND FEDERAL POLICE STOPS BUT ONCE WE SHOWED MY FM3 THEY WAVED US THRU. DO I NEED TO GET ONE AND HOW DO I DO IT AT THIS POINT. THECAR IS IN MEXICO, I AM IN THE U.S. AND PLAN TO FLY IN THIS FALL.LOCAL OFFICIALS IN MEXICO WHERE I LIVE DID NOT KNOW.

      Len, when you entered Mexico at Ciudad Acuña, did you have the car with you? Was your car crossing the border with you? Because if your car was already in Mexico and you entered by yourself with your FM3, then you didn´t need an import sticker for your car. But, if you were entering with the car, you did need an import sticker. You are saying you don´t have any import document for your car, right? If so, you have to go to the border, take the car out and re-enter (you can do it the same day) and obtain the temporary import permit at the border. However, when you cross the border you will be asked for the permit in order that the authorities cancel it. If you don´t have the permit, that means the vehicle is illegal in Mexico and in order to drive it to the border you will need to get from Mexican tax authorities an special permit called “Retorno Seguro” which grants you with 4-5 days to return an illegal car out of Mexico. If you have other questions, you can contact me at adriana@yucatanyes.com
