Customs Regulations

What to know about customs regulations when moving to Mexico

Mexican customs regulations are subject to change and interpretation by authorities at different ports of entry/exit. You must know what documents are needed and what is allowed or not to be shipped.

Household goods and personal effects shipments are tax and duty free, if all permitted items have been used for more than six months and show evidence of use. All shipments are customs inspected so we recommend not attempting to hide any prohibited item.

Documents required when moving to Mexico

Documents required depend on your particular immigration classification. Returning Mexican nationals need to obtain from the Mexican embassy or nearest consulate a document titled "visado de menaje de casa", that is a consular inventory, after showing proof of having resided out of Mexico for at least six consecutive months.

Foreign nationals besides their work visa (FM3 visa) might be also asked for this "visado de menaje de casa" and it is up to customs officials at the port of entry to ask for it or not. For exact information on your particular case, please contact us.

There are other classifications like returning students, Mexican and foreign diplomats, etc. with special requirements for each one.

As a rule do not include in your shipment

  • Any type of foods or beverages
  • Natural plants or soil
  • Drugs
  • Medicines
  • Pirated or pornographic items
  • Firearms, ammunition, etc.

We can gladly provide you with the complete and correct information for your particular case.
