No, all cargo must be inspected and the documents should match in quantity and description. This process is called Previo and can take 30 minutes to hours even days depending the commodity and quantity. The cargo will then be classified according to Mexican HS Codes criteria, a Pedimento will be created and taxes must be paid the day of exportation in order to be imported into Mexico.
