Mexico Extends Higher Duties on Various Apparel, Textile and Footwear Products
31 October 2019
Mexico issued two decrees on 10 April modifying its most-favoured nation import duties on a broad range of apparel, textile and footwear products and creating new tariff breakouts within a range of subheadings. Specifically, Mexico reversed for a period of 180 days (from 25 April through 22 October 2019) the duty reduction that took place on 31 January with respect to (i) 57 tariff lines comprising various knitted and woven apparel products (25 percent duty in lieu of 20 percent duty), (ii) nine tariff lines comprising made-up textiles (25 percent duty in lieu of 20 percent duty), and (iii) 34 tariff lines comprising footwear products (25 percent or 30 percent in lieu of 20 percent).
Mexico is now extending these higher duties – 25 percent for 274 apparel and made-up textile tariff lines and 25 percent or 30 percent for 44 footwear tariff lines – through 30 September 2024, with those duties now scheduled to fall to 20 percent on 1 October 2024.
