Call of Duties: Importing Household Items to Mexico

go to original
September 20, 2016

Are you moving to Puerto Vallarta? Importing household goods into Mexico can be a confusing endeavor, particularly trying to navigate what is subject to duties and what items you may bring in without taxation.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Ready to leave it all behind and move to Mexico... but would kind of like to bring some of it with you?

Importing goods to Mexico can be a confusing endeavor - particularly trying to navigate what is subject to duties and what items you may bring in without taxation. But armed with the correct information you can sail through the process easily.

Here are our tips for importing goods to Mexico.

Goods Not Subject to Importation Duties

Furniture
Household goods such as pots and pans and kitchen items
Clothing
Books or personal music collections
Art work that is for personal use, not public exhibition
Baby needs like cribs, play pens, strollers, etc.
Tools of the trade for your profession, i.e. professional plumbing equipment, scientific instruments or artisan tools

Goods Subject to Importation Duties

Vehicles
Any goods that have been out of the country for commercial or industrial activities
Electronics that are not for personal use. For example, a married couple bringing more than two laptop computers would need to prove that any additional computer was a specific tool of the trade needed for their own professional use.

As things often do in Mexico, these rules are subject to change without prior advisement, but you can keep up to date on current regulations via this English-language government website to avoid any unwelcome taxation surprises at the border.
