Import Requirments



  • A good source for information on importing to the U.S. is the Trade Commission of Mexico, located at the World trade Center in Los Angeles, California, (350 S. Figueroa St, Suite 296, Los Angeles, California 90071) at telephone (213) 628-1220 (their fax number is 213 - 628-8466).

  • The duty that the Mexican customs authority will determine (and charge) is figured by applying the corresponding tariff to the CIF (cost of the product + insurance + freight) value of the product. As well there will be a customs processing fee of 8/10th of 1% of the assessed CIF value. Also, there is an Added Value Tax (IVA) on goods and services sold in Mexico (see IVA elsewhere on this site)

  • In order to verify whether your U.S. product qualifies under NAFTA for import into Mexico , you first contact the Foreign trade Division of the U.S. Census Bureau at telephone (301) 763-3259 (for durable goods) or (301) 763-3484 (for non-durable goods) and ask for a "harmonized tariff schedule number" or "classification" for the product you are inquiring about or you go to the web site of:  ( ). Then you can contact the Mexico desk officer at the U.S. Department of Commerce (in Washington D.C.), where a trade specialist will give you the duty rate for your product based on the "harmonized tariff schedule number" you got from the Census Bureau. You can also contact the U.S. NAFTA Help Desk at telephone (202) 927-0066 or the U.S. Trade Information Center at telephone (800) 872-8723.
