Re: [EricWoods] Value of Personal Items Coming Into Baja
| Private Reply
i just read an article on BAJA 123 Real Estate Site i think that something dont sound right on it, it says that a foreign visitor entering Baja can only have $75usd value of goods without paying duty, i have planned on driving from Virginia in June to check out the Rosarito Beach area & Ensenada with a serious view to moving there if i like it, however how can one possibly limit what they would have realisticly to 75usd i was planning on bringing my Laptop computer $350 value Cell Phone $200, Gps Navigation $125 i know your clothes don't count in this if they did one would have to enter nude it doesn't mention cash so i am not sure how much you are allowed to bring, please someone tell me that what i have read is incorrect if it is true i better forget about coming down, or do you pay temporary import duty on entry and get a refund when leaving again if not i cannot believe how anyone would ever want to go there, dont get me wrong i am not grumbling i just had so much research done in the area and this has knocked me for 10 will be very dissapointed if i need to cancel my other option was a move to Portugal but Mexico was the #1 preference, all information will be much appreciated,
Thanks in Advance
