Import of Wines and Spirits in Mexico

Unlike other perishable products, the regulations to introduce wines into Mexico do not limit the name of the brands that you can enter the country, however, there are specific documents that are necessary to import this type of merchandise.

In order to import wine to Mexico, the first step is to have the necessary basic requirements, which are:

  • Registration to the register of importers. Indispensable for natural or legal persons who intend to import merchandise into national territory.

  • Registration to the register of taxpayers of alcoholic beverages in the RFC. Which is presented by importers of alcohol, denatured alcohol, non-crystallizable honey and alcoholic beverages.

  • Certificate of free sale and consumption. It is the authorization of the brand or production house for the exploitation of the product in the Mexican market.

  • Certificate of analysis and health registration. The Mexican government requires that all brands meet a certified quality and health standard. Document issued by each country and it is the manufacturer who provides it.

In the case of wines, the designation of origin (DO) itself carries this seal of quality.

  • International Phytosanitary Certificate (IFC). This document validates that the product is free of added pesticides or chemicals.

  • Certificate corresponding to the classification of the origin of the product from which it is imported. If there is a trade agreement or Free Trade Agreement, it is the document where the tariff conditions are established.

  • Payment of Special Tax on Production and Services to the Introduction to the Territory of Mexico (IEPS). Where the amount to be paid is determined with the certificate of analysis and sanitary registration, which keeps the record of the alcohol graduation that determines the tariff classification.
