Ciudad Juarez border crossing.
The Aduana station (Mexican Customs and Immigration) is located south of the border, on Highway 45 to Chihuahua City, at km 30.
There is a large modern Pemex gas station just before you reach the Aduana, on the right.
There is a fee for parking.
You'll find an ATM machine next to the restrooms. It dispenses cash, in Mexican pesos only.
According to information posted inside the Aduana offices, they will have a website, www.banjercito.com.mx. Beginning on April 01, 2002, you'll be able to submit information online that will expedite, or even result in a car import permit. "Importación temporal de vehiclulos".
The cost of the vehicle permit is $20, plus $2 IVA.. This fee is charged against the credit card you use to post the import bond.
