Discusses requirements for products entering the country/economy temporarily. Includes information on warranty and non-warranty items shipped for repairs.
Products may be imported under temporary admission or drawback provisions. Products imported under temporary provisions are exempt from import duties but must be re-exported within 18 months. Temporary admission is for processing, assembling, transforming, or integrating imported inputs to the final production of exported goods. The system covers: raw materials; parts and accessories; motors, packaging and packaging materials; matrix, molds, and models; intermediate goods; agricultural products; and products that are part of production processes.
This mechanism also applies to products that are imported for a short period with specific purposes and are then exported, for example, materials to set up stands in international events or cars for international races.
