A rate of 0.25 percent is applied to goods entering under diplomatic concessions and for those that are on “temporary entry.”  Temporary entry refers to goods that will be processed before being re-exported.  These goods are subject to a security deposit equivalent to 150 percent of the duties and taxes payable under the release for consumption regime.  The deposit is in the form of a bank check and released once the goods are re-exported.  Goods that enter the country under the temporary entry regime and are then used for consumption purposes are taxed on the amount of their depreciation when they are re-exported.  All imported goods are subject to verification fees and administrative costs.  Goods imported into the country under the temporary entry regime are also subject to a 0.25 percent uniform rate, as are goods entering under diplomatic concessions.
