The document number is your passport number
So what's the deal with the TIP and only being able to submit one application every 10 years? How do you handle buying a new boat and taking it to Mexico?
Also, has anyone just gone straight to Ensenada before heading to fishing grounds and checked in there to take care of all the paperwork? Is that easier versus doing it online?
Went to website in February 2016 and looks it different. Try this link if the above instructional link doesn't work:
THANKS SO MUCH FOR POSTING THIS!
helped a ton, i got all my stuff for spring break in no time. in case no one else has mentioned this, the new license website gives you a receipt AND a pdf of the printable license.
For the FMM there's an area for license:
And for document:
I'm assuming document is passport number? What is license?
you may want to check message #93 in this thread
Any idea what's flag/banner? Port to entry in mexico And nationaliy,entry dates and departing date? what dates you guys put in?? Thanks
My boat type and year is not listed on TIP site. I've tried every combination to make it work but it will not allow me to use my real boats information ( aquasport, 1972 ) so what are my options? Do I need to go somewhere to get a TIp?
i have temporary 2 year residency in Mexico (INM). do i need a FFM visa?
no. you cannot purchase an FMM while holding a temporal.
is this the right page for getting the visa?
Why is it that when I click this (from the original post for FMM's):
I see this:
There's no English translation and I can't find the FMM shite. Did something change???
Here is the link I used with no issues:
Then downloaded the spreadsheet from here (click on the picture of the excel file to download):
Then send your email with receipt and manifest attached.
Hope this helps
Is the email address to send your manifest and proof of payment still bc_pescad[email protected]. Does everyone get the required Mexican liability Insuarance? My U.S. policy covers me to Cedros but I heard your suppose to have Mexican liability insurance. Thanks in advance.
#1 - I have read thru this entire thread I have a question or two....Is this true? I have read where some on this website have said the 12nm limit starts at the islands
#2 - I did not see an answer to this question in post #63?
Most people are still getting away with less than they need. Many people go into Mexico to fish off shore with just a Mexican fishing license and their passport, thinking that's enough.
This thread actually only covers the very minimum you might be able to get away with if the Navy boat that stops you is cool about it.
The letter of the law requires a lot more than what is said here:
* You need a FCC operators license, $60
* You need a FCC ship license, $160
* You need proof of insurance from a Mexican company, $230
Anyone who doesn't have the above is taking a risk. Personal opinion: fish Mexico on a sport boat, instead of your own boat, that way you never have to deal with any of this and it's also less expensive.
