South America TVIP

I have searched this forum and have not found much about all the Temporary Vehicle Import Permit information for all South American countries. It would be very helpful to have a thread with all this information on it. Please post what you know and i will edit this post and add your info.

Argentina - 8 months **** It seems like 3 months is the new normal at some border crossings now *****
Chile - 90 days
Brazil - 90 days
Uruguay - 12 months
Paraguay - 3 months
Bolivia - 30 days
Peru - 90 days
Ecuador - 90 days
Colombia - 60 days
Mexico - 180 days
United States - 12 months
Canada - 12 months

I believe Bolivia is 3 months but it's easy to obtain an extension to 6 months.

I had my 180 days Bolivian permit extended in La Paz with another 180 days. But when we left to Brasil last week, the border officials went crazy. They never saw a vehicle that had that kind of permit and were really keen to find out who had signed that piece of paper. After some phone calls everything seemed OK and we were let go out of the country...


Adventurous greetings,
Coen

Need to verify the Canada/USA, they both offer 12 months but I have heard that you do not get a restart (like most countries in SA) by running up to Canada and back to USA.

Good idea this list. By way of a bump, would be interesting to hear the TIP deal in Colombia, VNZ, Ecuador and Peru.

Ecuador is 3 months, you can go out of the country and come back the same day you will have another 3 months. You are allowed to do this only twice in a year (2 x 3 months in a year) OR, if you have two passports because you have two nationalities then you can do the same with each passport. That is what I did.
