Banjercito Offices On The Border

If you plan to drive a car with foreign plates in Mexico, you must visit a Banjercito office at the Mexican border to get a temporary import permit.

A Temporary Import Permit allows foreign-plated vehicles to enter Mexico as long as they are for private use. And this permit is temporary- meaning you are not permanently importing your car. 

This permit is issued ONLY by Banjercito either at a land border or at specific Mexican consulates.

One thing worth mentioning is that you DO NOT need a temporary import permit if you are driving in the “free zone” of Mexico. The free zone is 21 km from the US-Mexico border, 98 Km in Sonora or all of the Baja Peninsula.

Most but not all land borders have a Banjercito office on site.

The following list shows you the border Banjercito offices at land borders where you can obtain a new temporary import permit and turn in your temporary import permit when you leave Mexico.

    Thank you for providing this information. I had to wade thru hundreds of pages to find your page.

    All the the other pages explained the process over and over again and again until I wanted to barf.
    You are the only one smart enough to give the states, cities, addresses, and hours.
    I was looking for one specific office and their hours of operation. You gave me exactly what I was looking for. Thank you.

      Glad you found this page! Thanks for giving me some feedback

    You are missing the offices in Tamaulipas. I know that Pharr 1 has offices, but I am not sure if the Nuevo Laredo offices or other have them too.

    Thanks for putting this together. Very helpful

    Thank you! We’ll be returning our TIP at the Nogales KM21 office on our way to Arizona after a long drive, and were just wondering how early we’d have to leave our hotel to get there. Understanding a lot can change between now and then, but this helps a lot. I’ll be checking back and calling them before we leave. Thx!

    Quick update on the offices in Coahuila. When I visited yesterday to cancel a TVIP, I discovered the office at the border in Piedras Negras does not perform this service. They do issue the permits, but they do not cancel them. The nearest location was an hour to the interior at Banjercito Allende, a roadside facility along Hwy 57. The wait there was about half a dozen vehicles, with each vehicle requiring about a five minute inspection process for the staff member to photograph the VIN # and vehicle from different angles.

      thanks for the heads up- updated it!

    I have a FMM form that needs to be returned. I do NOT have a TIP as I was not driving my car while in MX (I was driven by a Mexico resident). I plan to return via the Nogales crossing. A) since I’m not returning a TIP, do I still have to go to the Banjercito office? Or can the FMM be returned at the boarder? B) If I have to go to the Banjercito office, is it within the free zone and can I get to the office and turn around all while in the free zone? Which crossing should I be using? C) Is there any other way to return it in the US? Mexico Consulate perhaps?
