Requirements to start exporting in Mexico

Starting to export your products to other countries is a clear sign that your business is growing. Unfortunately, this is a process that can become a real headache for those who lack experience in the field.

What documents do I need to export?

The Ministry of Economy highlights the following:

  • Tax Identification Number (RFC)

  • Commercial Invoice
  • Power of Attorney
  • Letter of Instructions to the customs agent
  • Packing list
  • Certificate of Origin
  • Transportation documents
  • Documents substantiating compliance with non-tariff regulations and restrictions.

Where can I process these documents?

Both the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit and the Tax Administration Service, as well as the Ministry of Economy, are entities that support exporters in processing these documents.

How do I know if my company can export?

Absolutely all companies in Mexico can export regardless of their sector or size, as long as they are legally constituted according to the tax and commercial laws of the country and meet the country’s export requirements.

Remember that while the requirements mentioned in this blog are general and apply equally in Mexico to any company, the information required may vary depending on the destination country.
