Bringing personal items into Mexico

Moving to Mexico
What is a “Menaje de Casa”?
When you plan a move to Mexico, there are certain things that you will want to take with you. You may hear the term “menaje de casa”. So, what does it mean? Menaje de casa is a list of items to be imported into Mexico. Mexican Customs is VERY strict about what you can and can’t bring into the country. For example, you cannot label a box with clothes and shoes in it “Shoes and Clothes”. You must be very specific. Example: 5 pairs of shoes, 15 shirts.

For a list of what can be imported, visit your local Mexican consulate before you go. This can save you a lot of time and headaches. You must submit your list or menaje to your consulate for approval. Any electronics must have the model number written down next to the product description. The list must be translated in Spanish.
