Is it fully Mex registered for Quintan Roo?
All the tenenicas are paid up with a current plate?

Mike
I think we hadthisconversationlastyear.
I gave up my fm3 visa because I don't spend much time here and it wasn't worth the hassle. After 5 years migration told me to apply for an fm2 but I am not here long enough for that.
Without the fm3 the bike is not legal.

I have three options
Keep the bike
Sell it and transfer at the border in chetumal
Locals here saytheycanregister it for 400us.

When I brought the bike back into MX from belizea few years agotheytoldme in Qroo ididnothavetoimportitsoididnt

That's the story .
I havebeenundertheimpressionthat it's oktouseithere in Qroo but icouldhaveproblems traveling to a different state . Without the fm3 I can not import it since now I am a lowly tourist. I can drive it down to chetumal ans import it but then I have to take it back out.

Any advice

Brian

Too bad you ditched the FM, they have made some changes to the migration policies and you probably would have qualified for something.
I seem to recall this from the last year, too.
I would pay the money and plate it and register it and maybe you can bypass the tenenicas and offer a real bargain to someone.

The easiest thing may be to get another residence visa. I let it go because they wanted me to stay in MX. While they processed it for a month. I still have to work in the US so I couldn't stay the month.
I heard they are making changes to the visa so I will see what happens.
I remember fondly passing thru your area. I rode thru MX city,Puebla and was surprised coming out of the mountains on my way to cordoba by the lushest green valleys I have seen.
