RE: Special request for all X-pats and visitors

Eating out ina restaurant is a bad idea. We also tip the baggers and lot attendants. They live on tips. The baggers are seniors that are living on pensions that could not feed a cat! Moisheh

RE: Fuel Prices are WAY Down!!

Under 13 in much of Sonora Saw fuel for $1.29 in New Mexico. Many states have Diesel for $2.25 a gallon. Fuel prices are meaningless when you cannot go anywhere. Moisheh

RE: Turning in my TIP late

How late. Did you leave a deposit? Depends where you are crossing.

RE: Rving in Mexico and South America

We are in Nogales,Az. No problems crossing but the woman did not know that Canadians can cross. There was only one other car at the border. NUTS

Mexico /US border

At midnight the US border will only allow essential crossing. Such as : you work in the USA, have a medical appointment in the USA, are an essential worker such as truck driver, LEO, emergency worker, etc.. I saw nothing about Canadians wanting to get back to Canada. I tried to get more information but the border officials have not received any info as of noon today. The Canadian Gov. has asked all Canadians to return home. I can understand their concern. There must be 2 to 300 RV travelers in Mexico right now. WE are going to try to cross tomorrow and I will post if I get any more info. I think the need for urgency is that the next step is to lock down the borders for anything other goods. They will try to keep the trade going both ways. Moisheh

RE: 60+ asked to limit movement (Mexico)

Today there will be the announcement that the Mexican/US border will be closed to all non necessary travel. We are starting to close the house and packing the Motorhome. Had planned on leaving Monday morning. Could be stuck here until "who knows when". Moisheh

RE: Heading Home (North)

https://www.usnews.com/news/healthiest-communities/articles/2020-03-18/bay-area-coronavirus-lockdown-foreshadows-whats-to-come There is one other community in a similar lockdown. I rarely go to facebook and never believe anything this posted. I watch the news and listen not to the media people or the politicians. But I do listen to the Scientists and the Drs. Moisheh

RE: Heading Home (North)

"Two more weeks might see the peak of this virus." That post shows how fast things can change. It is hard to make any plans beyond a few days. But very soon any type of RV travel will not only be difficult it may be prohibited. Some cities have regional lockdowns and may go to large lockdowns. Then it becomes States closing highways to non essential travel. besides the best place to be is Home. If you want to be in a RV move into your unit! Moisheh

RE: new TIP without leaving Mexico

That person would not be breaking any regulations. The car permit is not once every 12 months. If they give her a new FMM then obviously it is OK. So my advice is not wrong. I am glad that the one poster is pure. Anyone that is a regular traveler to Mexico knows that many times you have to swallow your purity and be creative. That is the norm in Mexico. If you got stopped by a Transito for no reason and he was hinting at Mordida. Would you stand your ground? If you did and he said follow me to the police station would you do so? If the Jefe explained that you must pay the fine and a fee bringing the total to $200.00 or he gave you the option of staying in the jail until the Judge shows up tomorrow what would you do? You have 2 choices: pay the so called fine with no receipt or go to jail. Something similar to this happened to a friend about 18 years ago. He was lucky that the owner of the Trailer park knew the judge. He did stay the night but paid nada. Moisheh

RE: Expired TIP

The OP is going back to Nogales. He can turn in his TIP and just turn around and get another. Nothing illegal about that. But if he turns in his FMM and immediately asks for another that could be a problem. Regardless if he wants a TIP or FMM he has to go to Nogales. Neither are available other than at the Frontera. So using his wife's name is of no help. I am not sure that presently the TIP is linked to your passport. It was but that may have changed. Does anyone know if they were able to use their wife's passport in the last 12 months? Moisheh

RE: Expired TIP

I returned to the USA/Canada with a still valid 10 year permit. I was going to go the next day and cancel at he border. But the person that bought my unit wanted to go home right away. I went through hell!! I was still in Mexico and had the proper form. I went to a Mexican parcel service and paid for next day delivery. The driver called me from Mexico City. They would not accept the dociment as it was addressed to a woman who wss trnsfered to another area!! privacy issues. The next day I picked up the document. Called and after about an hour got the name of the new person.Resent the document. 2 months later I got a phone call that they needed a copy of the new owner's registration certified by the Secretary of state for the new state. I was lucky that the new owner's wife was a notary and she notarized document from the Registrar of vehicles. I was in Canada and I had to send it DHL. 30 days later I received the cancellation. I do not remember the total cost but I think I could have flown to CDMX for less pesos!!!!

RE: Canadian health Insurance

Noteven: Who is your insurer? Have you read the policy? Seems odd that one of those companies would actually be doing the right thing! Moisheh

RE: new TIP without leaving Mexico

You could also cross the border at KM21 and not turn in your papers. Hundreds of people do this with no trouble. But they do not have a car permit. If you have car papers turn them in as usual, then park in the lot on the other side of the road and start all over again. If you are worried then go a little further after turning in your papers and park on a Pemex lot and cross the next day. I have never heard of anyone being turned away. I do not think there is any rule regarding your vehicles being in Mexico twice in one year. Moisheh

Canadian health Insurance

This is a heads up for all Canadians that have a travel health policy. Even if it is a group policy. Some insurers are saying that your coverage has ended yesterday. Some are saying you still have coverage but not for the Virus. Some are giving you 10 days from Trudeau's announcement. Some will extend the 10 days if you have a valid reason ( like being in quarantine). I have no idea what the provinces are doing. If they don't provide coverage your travel policy is null and void. This is serious. I We are headed to HMO right away to see what is happening in the big city. If the stores are not jammed we might just take a chance and stay. We are more worried about the drive from Tucson to Manitoba. Hard to not have some minimal contact with other people. And by the time we get back will the health system be able to handle the crisis? Hard to think straight under duress. Sonora announced a bunch of new rules concerning bars and meetings, etc. But no mention of canceling Semana santa. We get upwards of 40,000 people in our pueblo!

CoronaVirus and Mexico

I am quite surprised at the lack of Mexican news re the Virus. Have any of the xpats on this forum seen any news? Maybe Chris or Navegator. I expected the IMSS to publicize information and best hygiene practices. We only get US TV so wonder if the Mexican channels and radio are informing the public. In other news we can expect Pemex to really go bankrupt with the price of oil tumbling. Moisheh

RE: Scams at gas stations

Chris: Almost every time an attendant will tell you the pump is zeroed and ask you to look at the pump. I have never gotten out of the car and yelled. I do look at my bills carefully and dont take off until he walks away or puts the bills in his pouch/pocket. I avoid stations where people have reported problems. I also ask for my fuel in Spanish. But if some loud Gringo greets the attendant rudely I think it would be a different story. Because I am travelling the same routes I fuel up at the same stations. But over the years I have had problems 3 times. Once was in 1985 in my Wife's van. We were at a large Pemex outside tepic. I was young and naive!They still had those pumps that could be rigged to keep the old total on the pump. He showed me the pump and the litres were way more than the capacity of the tank. I got nasty with him and gave him enough to cover the cost of what I estimated it would hold. I took off! Another time in HMO a guy tried the bill switch. I had counted my money that morning and knew exactly which bills I had. When he showed me the 50 peso note I did raise my voice. He insisted so I went and got the manager. I then got in my truck and took off. It seems the problems happen at stations on the highways where Gringos travel. But short fuel amounts still happen. El Imparcial does a story on this once in awhile.
