How exciting! May I ask where in Mexico you are moving?
I have worked in import/export to Latin America for 12 years and
have lived in Central and South America for a total of 2 years. I
love Mexico, it is such an amazing country with a rich culture and
history, and the people are so nice! Working with them however can
get pretty interesting - have you ever watched those Mexican
Anyway, I am not familiar with importing personal items into the
country, but if I were you I would get an experienced import agent
who can handle all of the documents for you. Mexican Customs are
really picky and if you get even one detail wrong on your documents
(packing list, bill of lading, etc.), they could hold up your items
for months and you’d have to pay a lot of money to get them out.
Also, our company pays 30% duty, but that’s for cut-and-sew items.
Best of luck to you,
