Mexico Tariffs on Goods Carried Into Mexico

Postby bridgat » Mon Nov 17, 2008 12:41 pm

Persons residing outside of Mexico (regardless of whether they are Mexican citizens) may bring into the country an array of personal duty-free items. Lists of the specific personal items exempted from duties are available at Mexican Customs facilities. Beyond these items, there is a $300 limit for additional duty-free items. This limit applies whether or not they arrive by land, sea or air.

Persons bringing personal dutiable good (or goods) into Mexico have the option of classifying them under the product-specific tariff (this would involve the hiring of a customs broker) or declaring the goods under a simplified procedure and paying a total duty charge of 32.8%. Otherwise, import duties of up to 20% are levied on the goods as well as a customs user fee 0.8% (as of June 30, 1999 the customs user fee was eliminated on NAFTA originating goods as per NAFTA Annex 310.1) and a value-added tax (15%).

These provisions can only be used for personal goods. They are not applicable for goods brought into Mexico for commercial purposes.
