The Camara de Diputados has published their new version of the Ley Aduanera that harmonizes Mexico’s Customs Law with the November 2012 Lineamiento changes made to the Immigration Law (Ley de Imigración). (There is no word yet on when it will be formally signed into law.)
If we jump to Article 106, we see that the Mexican legislature sure seems to have fixed the problem of working (lucrativo) Residente Temporal INM permit holders who also have Temporarily Imported Permit vehicles.
Here is Yucalandia’s rough translation into English, followed by the Spanish language version:
Articulo 106: IV. PART IV. For the term of his or her migratory status, including extensions (renewals), under the Terms and Conditions established by SAT (el Servicio de Administración Tributaria) applies to the following cases:
a. Vehicles owned by owned by foreigners who enter the country, using visitor and Temporary Resident permits to temporarily import a single vehicle. Vehicles may be driven within Mexico by the importer, his spouse, ascendants, descendants or brothers and sisters, even if they are not foreigners, or by a foreigner
having one of the conditions of stay referred to above (Visitante or Residente Temporal), or by a Mexican national, provided that in the latter case, the Mexican is accompanied by any of the types of people authorized to drive the vehicle. This vehicle may make multiple entries and exits. The vehicles covered by this subsection, shall meet the requirements of the Regulations.
