Mexico - Special Considerations

Note special considerations for Carnets going to Mexico:

  • At this time, all customs ports in Mexico validate ATA Carnets in and out of Mexico.
    Mexico Customs Ports of Entry and Hours of Operation.
  • Advance Notification/Registration - Carnets entering Mexico must be registered before arrival.
  • Boomerang carnets® will prepare and submit the advance notification to CANACO once we have completed processing the Carnet application.
    Approval from Mexican customs may take 2-3 days. Plan travel and shipping dates accordingly.
  • The General List is no longer recommended to be translated into Spanish but it can be provided by boomerang carnets® if desired.
  • Mexican customs allows ATA Carnets and their goods to remain in Mexico for up to 6 months.
  • Note and track the Final Date of Re-Exportation on the white importation counterfoil as that is the final day the goods may be in Mexico.
