4% of Vehicle Owners Haven’t Paid he 2013 Marchamo


It’s the end of March, almost 90 days when the 2013 Marchamo (circulation permit) was due and payable. However, some 165.000 vehicles have yet to pay up.

The number represents some 4% of the national vehicular fleet.

The largest percentage of non-payers are owners of motorcycles, followed by owners of special equipment vehicles.

The number also includes those vehicles that have been “junked” – written off by the insurance company or take off circulation by the owner for lack of maintenance, repair, too old, etc, but never unregistered.

All vehicles on register with the Registro Nacional (National Registry) as of November 1, 2012 are required to pay the 2013 Marchamo regardless of their state of repair or even if in circulation.

Owners of junked vehicles are required to notify the registry and take necessary steps and payments, in addition to the cost of a notary or lawyer, to process the request.

Not doing so, the cost of the Marchamo accumulates with interest and late payment charges. Drivers with vehicles circulating without the Marchamo face a fine and/or confiscation of the vehicle.
