Arizona only borders the Mexican state of Sonora and a Temporary Vehicle Importation Permit (TIP) is not required to drive in most of the state of Sonora. However, if you plan to travel outside of the free border zone, you will want to purchase a TIP before you go. Read our blog entitled Who Needs a Temporary Importation Permit for more information.
