This part's for Silver. This was passed on to me from Bernardo...so for most of the details, you will have to ask him. I know that most travel from Lukeville, AZ crossing to Sonoyta, Mx. doesn't require anything as Puerto Penasco travel doesn't require immigration or car permit. |
Bernardo told me that he could put his Banjercito sticker anywhere he wanted because nobody cares at that station...(center of windshield). I've gone to Rocky Point many times but since I was going for the weekend, I never thought much about immigration or my car!! So I can only assume that there is a point on the road (carretera#2) to Caborca where you will come across an immigration point and a Banjercito station and from Caborca you stay on #2 for about another 100+ km. and you are also at Santa Anna. You probably wouldn't want to cross at Lukeville on the weekends as this is the weekend resort area for Phoenix and Tucson daytrippers! The US customs immigration is pretty tight about checking you through to the USA at this point.
Actually all of Sonora is free, I picked up something in Alamos about Sonora permits don't cost as much as a permit to import your vehicle into the other 75 states of Mexico...Baja excluded. This was again confirmed at the checkpoint on the cuota passing into Sinaloa...you will see what I mean if you look for it.
