Mexico Modifies Import Duties on Certain Footwear and Textiles

Posted by Kelsay Calvaruso on 11/18/19 5:00 PM

On October 29, 2019, the Government of Mexico announced that import duties on 317 tariff classifications for footwear, textiles, and garments remain between 25-30% as announced originally on April 10, 2019. 

This affects 43 classifications for products under Chapter 64 (footwear) and 274 classifications from Chapters 61-63 (textiles and garments) imported from countries that do not have a trade agreement with Mexico.

These classifications were originally increased on April 10, 2019 for 180 days in an effort to provide time for the national industry to prepare for the challenges of a reduction in import duties in the future.  The October 29th modification will remain in effect until September 2024.
