San Emeterio

This is the place to obtain visas and vehicle permits and to return vehicle stickers. . There is easy parking and room for RVs.

There is a Banjercito – Army Bank – for you to apply and receive your vehicle permits. There is a booth for photocopying. When you receive your papers, put all your receipts and the wrapper from the vehicle permit into a safe place. (We put them into a baggie) You will need both vehicle permits and visas when you return to the US. If you do not have you papers, there may be fine, a forfeit of your car deposit but certainly will cause a delay. PUT ALL YOUR PAPERS IN A SAFE PLACE.

After you have obtained your permits and visas you will drive through an area with lanes indicating Nothing to Declare or Need to Declare. If you have nothing to declare over your customs limit choose the nothing to declare line. Otherwise take the Declare lanes.

When you drive though a light will randomly select red or green. If you get green, proceed; red means you must stop and talk to a migration officer.

Returning to the US

When you are returning to the US you must return your vehicle permit. To do so drive north on Highway 2  to San Emeterio. You park, present your papers and get a receipt. Keep it.
