Do I have to pay customs duties for a shipment to Mexico?

Before you start organising your shipment to Mexico with Mon courrier de France, you will need to make an inventory of the contents of your parcel and fill in the pre-tax value of each item in your shipment. Here is a short guide to filling out your inventory, better known as a customs invoice. (see our practical sheet - How to fill the declaration of contents?).


Regarding the declared value thresholds, several cases are possible:


-The value of my goods is less  than USD 50.

In this case, your shipment should be exempt from import duties and taxes by Mexican Customs. My shipment will be delivered directly to the recipient in Mexico.

-The value of my goods is between USD 50 and USD 1000

In this case, the Mexican customs will systematically apply a 16% tax on the declared value of the goods + shipping costs + insurance costs. The duties and taxes applied by the Mexican customs must be paid by the recipient of your shipment. The consignee has 10 days from the date of the customs invoice to make the payment. If the recipient does not comply with this deadline or decides to abandon the goods, the sender will have to cover the storage costs charged by Mexican customs, which can amount to 80 euros, as well as the payment of any duties and taxes.

-The value of my goods is more than USD 1000


For shipments with a value of more than USD 1,000, you will need to use a customs agent in Mexico to facilitate the clearance of your shipment. Mexican customs will apply the rate of duty applicable to the customs category of the goods being shipped.

-I am shipping textiles, shoes or furs


Please note! Shipments containing textiles, footwear or furs will be subject to a specific duty rate of 41% of the declared value + value of the shipment + insurance cost.Please note!
