A big sophisticated search facility. Customs, military, federales and agricultural inspection. They directed our vehicle to federales who wanted to see our vehicle permit.
Why? By checking in after you’ve visited a place you let others know this place is still functional. You can also add or correct any information.
Going north on highway 190 you must pass through this inspection point. They asked to see our vehicle permit, passports, and took a quick look in our van.Report Check-In
It was like a proper border crossing. Cameras, automatic gates. Aduana agent stopped us to see our van importation papers and pasports. But friendly and professional.Report Check-In
They only checked to see if we had any alcohol and cigarrettes with us. We did (couple of beers) they didn’t mind.
A short look into the car and we could drive on.
Nobody looked for fruits or vegetables.
Thi is not a road-side stop, but a big sophisticated and hi-tech facility for vehicle checking. We had a document check and a short search through the vehicle (north-bound). Very polite and professional. A lot of heavily armed soldiers around.Report Check-In
