  1. https://www.condusef.gob.mx/Revista/index.php/usuario-inteligente/consejos-de-seguridad/789-sabes-como-identificarte Google Translation: "Documents allowed by the Financial Institutions Has it happened to you that you are going to the bank or some Financial Institution but you are not able to carry out the desired process or movement because you do not carry any document that allows you to identify yourself? Keep in mind that Financial Institutions must identify, evaluate and take actions to reduce the risks of illegal operations, so they implement user identification and knowledge policies, to mitigate the possibility of such an event. As a user of financial products and services, it is your duty to inform yourself and know the valid personal identification documents and thus not make unnecessary visits to these institutions, pay close attention: Documents issued by the Mexican authorities that allow you to identify yourself: Voting card IFE/INE Passport Professional card National military service card Consular registration certificate Unique military identity card Membership card to the National Institute of Older Adults (INAPAM) Credentials and cards issued by the IMSS, ISSSTE, by the Social Security Institute for the Mexican Armed Forces or by the Seguro Popular Driver's license Documentation issued by the National Migration Institute that accredits the immigration quality for persons of foreign nationality Financial Institutions must identify, evaluate and take actions to reduce the risks of illegal operations."
  2. The TIP deposit will be refundable until it expires in 180 days. The legal immigration status of the TIP holder determines if the TIP is valid. Once the legal immigration status expires the TIP becomes invalid therefore if the TIP holder is in Mexico legally so will his vehicle be legally in Mexico. I see no problem for the vehicle being driven in Mexico. If he informs ADUANA of the renewal of his Residente Temporal visa/card in one year and also did inform ADUANA before the 180 day TIP expires his deposit "should" be returned when he removes the vehicle from Mexico.

However, no one complains about the unjust criminalization of the government against the citizens whom he treats in the laws as potential criminals and forces them to investigate and report probable crimes; threatening them with fines and the initiation of criminal investigations if they do not do what is ordered. An example is the Federal Law for the Prevention and Identification of Operations with Resources of Illicit Origin. She determines that, based on certain values, they are vulnerable activities, that is, they can be carried out with illicit resources, among others, real estate developments; the commercialization of precious metals, jewels, watches, works of art and automobiles; donations to associations; the lease of real estate; some acts before notaries, such as real estate sales, granting of irrevocable powers for acts of ownership, the incorporation of companies and credit agreements. The Law prohibits paying with national and foreign currencies and bills the operations that exceed the values that it has determined; from which it must be paid by check or bank transfer. It imposes to merchants, builders, real estate agents and notaries, the following obligations in relation to their clients: I. Identify and verify their identity. II. Request information about your activity according to the Federal Taxpayers Registry. III. Request information on the existence of third parties that benefit from the operation. IV. Keeping the information. V. Identify the payment method. SAW. Give notice to the competent authority when the operation exceeds the values established in the Law. Finally, passing on the Constitution, fines for noncompliance are confiscatory: the minimum is 200 to 2,000 days of the minimum wage of the DF, but in most cases it can be from 10,000 to 65,000 thousand days. The above, despite the unfair burden of work, expenses and the risk of being sanctioned, would be acceptable if there were a real, general and effective fight against money laundering; unfortunately, laws such as the one mentioned above are imposed on Mexico due to pressure from abroad and do not have the proposed effects; on the contrary, they jeopardize the heritage and freedom of honest and fiscally captive citizens and hinder the development of their businesses." If you and Henry know nothing of Mexico's systems and laws regarding depositing cash in bank accounts and he waltzes into his bank with 10 crisp new 100 USD bills with no photo ID except a drivers licence and no debit card for his account and doesn't even know his account number and no INE card or passport I suspect the stupid, illogical ones are you and Henry, not the bank employees who know the system Mexico enforces upon them by federal law and are abiding by the federal laws requiring proper/legally accepted ID and proof of identity according to the instructions from their institute. IMO
  4. Technically if you enter Mexico and go to the INM office at the border crossing to have your passport 180 day visa stamped and fill out a FMM card with the "canje" 30 day portion and the immigration official stamps it valid you have not done anything wrong. Then if you stick the TIP sticker on the inside of your windshield and drive south who is going to check your TIP and reference it to the 30 day FMM card? No one I can think of. Not the local INM office where you will finish your visa. They don' t care what you drive. Probably the worst thing that can happen is you won't get your TIP deposit back when leaving Mexico if BANJERCITO somehow knows you broke a rule by getting a pre-approval on the INM website for a 180 day FMM tourist card way back then and didn't use it and opted for the 30 "canje" FMM card you had to have when applying at your local INM office when entering Mexico.
  5. You cannot get a 30 day TIP online only a 180 day TIP for tourists that are preapproved for a 180 FMM tourist card BANJERCITO's website directs you to the INM website page where you fill out the online form for the 180 day FMM day tourist card before you can pay and then recieve the TIP from the online BANJERCITO website. People who need a 30 day "canje" FMM card get their 30 day TIP at the border.

  7. Maybe the INM has a record at some/many border crossings of RT & RP visa/card holders entering Mexico not only at airports. Everytime I pass through the border at San Ysidro for the last 3 years on foot the INM is at the 2 enter Mexico walkways and scan my US passport and Residente Permanente card with different scanners.At the CBX - TJ Airport bridge there is the same INM scannings as the other 2. I presume the scanner that they always scan my RP card which registers my entrance into Mexico therefore they do have data of me entering everytime. Correct? They do not stamp my passport at San Ysidro. Only when we fly in from Spain it gets sramped out and then back in.
  8.  https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.elsoldesanluis.com.mx/local/mas-de-150-denuncias-por-exceso-de-ruido-ecologia-3209995.html/amp Google Translation: "El Sol de San Luis LOCAL / WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20, 2019 More than 150 complaints of excessive noise: Ecology Most complaints are resolved; few reach the fine; the western areas and the city center are the ones that have the most hearing pollution Audio pollution | Photo Norma Rivera Miguel Ángel Mora More than 150 complaints of excessive noise have received the direction of Ecology from the City Council of San Luis Potosí in the last three months; most have been resolved, but those establishments or individuals who have recidivized themselves have been fined. According to the head of the area, Israel Esparza Rodríguez, the majority of complaints for exceeding the permitted noise levels come from different areas of the city, but mainly from the western and central area. He pointed out that during the year the ecology department has registered a total of 160 complaints for excessive noise, so it has been proceeded according to the protocols, that is, the complaint is hardly received when the inspectors come to the home to verify its truthfulness. Once it is confirmed that there is excess noise, special equipment is used to measure decibels, and the manager or owner is informed that he is committing a violation of the Ecology regulation; In most cases the call of the inspectors is answered, but when it recurs, the fine is applied, which becomes from 10 UMA's [unit of measure] and onwards. He indicated that any citizen can report high levels of noise, whether from a company or workshop, from a commercial establishment and, even, from individuals, what can be done through official social networks, on the helpline (444 ) 834 54 34 or directly at the Ecology and Public Toilet offices in the Municipal Administrative Unit. Esparza Rodríguez clarified that the attention to complaints of excessive noise has no collection purpose, but is intended to influence the conscience of the citizen." They are doing something here lately according to this current article. When I attend an "evento" in a salon I can't hear anyone at our table, even when yelling. My ears are ringing for almost 20 minutes after we leave. We have been to over fifty and about 3 had the music low enough to converse in a loud voice all night. Some had breaks in the loud noise during the meal and some before the meal but after it got very loud and closer to the end it got even louder.
  9. They don't stay inmobile for weeks or months - just until the stiches bind.
  10. They get recommendations from attendees by counting what percentage of the people get up and dance at salon events. The louder the music the less people can chat inside - yelling at each other but no one can understand each other kills conversations - therefore they get bored sitting doing nothing after the food - drink some liquor and end up dancing. The DJs and bands blast the music on purpose to get a reputation of getting most of the attendees up dancing and having a good time. They know exactly what they are doing to get more salon events and bar jobs and probably charge more. Sounds very, very far from good acoustically but it is what "good" bands do in our area.
  11. 2018 minumum daily wage was $88.68 until Dec. 18, 2018. ALMO raised it to $102.68. $14.00 pesos more. 13.5 percent. In the free zone of the border it was $88.68 and he doubled it to $176.72.
  12. They sent you a valid TIP with your mother's maiden name added to your legal name correct? If it was me I would stick it on my windshield and get a 180 day FMM tourist card and drive down and enjoy my vacation not worrying about it. Who is going to ask you to show any paperwork? When you leave and stop at BANJERCITO give them the original paperwork and then tell them to give me a reciept once they remove the TIP sticker. At that time it might be a problem. It might be you will not get your deposit back. It might be nobody there notices the extra name but at least your vacation was OK.
  13. You don't put your maternal last name on Mexican forms. You leave that blank because it is not your legal name but for Mexicans it would be their legal name.
  14. The time I did that in TJ the taxi driver pulled a large butcher knife out from under his front seat.
  15. If the thieves get close enough to people can't they read the card's chip and make a card they can then use?
