*Please note: A Temporary Importation Permit (TIP) can ONLY be obtained through Mexico's Banjercito government agency. Mexpro has no affiliation, authority or connections with this organization.

There are many parts of Sonora that are covered under the "Mexico Free Zone" and do not require a Vehicle Import Permit. The cities of Rocky Point (Puerto Peñasco), Guaymas, San Carlos, Hermosillo, Bahia de Kino, Caborca, Father Kino Missions, Magdalena and Santa Ana are all part of the Sonora, Mexico free zone and do not require import permits.

You are only required to obtain a permit if driving further than kilometer 98 of Mexican Federal Highway No. 15. If you do drive into Sonora, outside the free zone, you have the option to purchase a "Sonora Only" Vehicle Import Permit for a reduced price (unless you buy online).

Obtain a vehicle import permit the same way you do for going to any location in Mexico.
