Import tariff quota

On January 20, 2017, the Government of Mexico attempted to tackle supply disruptions and price increases for apples, chilis, potatoes, tomatoes, onions and other vegetables. To stabilise domestic prices, the government opened duty-free import quotas for these goods. 

In order to enjoy this new zero duty, importers must complie with the requisites imposed by the Secretary of Economy for each of the goods, and hold a quota certificate issued by the same administration.

The Secretary of the Economy has not announced the volumes of the stated tariff quotas to date.
