How's your Spanish?

Google search with preferences set to English only and a querey of - Patron de Importadores - produces lots of hits all in Spanish.

Change the query to - Import License Mexico - and the second hit is this

About 1/2 way down the page is this,


Import to the U.S. from Mexico. 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).


there is a link to click on but I did not see where it led.

Adios for now,
