Last year the Mexico Government launch a new portal named “Ventanilla Unica de Comercio Exterior Mexicano”  most know as VUCEM, an official website that works as a unique window for international trade community in order to comply with new customs procedures and with the purpose to start a digital database that will help the government to have better control of the imports and exports operations.

Today is mandatory to use the VUCEM for all Import and Export operations in Mexico, in this portal the most popular procedure is to declare the Commercial Invoice by submitting the complete information to obtain a code named “COVE” Comprobante de Valor Electrotico in english “Electronic Value Voucher” this code is typed or declared on the official entry document named pedimento.

At the same time you’ll need to use VUCEM to scanned all Certificates, such as Nafta Certificate or any other document or permit that will assist as Customs Compliant process. All scanned documents are named E-Documents in reference of the electronic documents, same as the COVE, you get a code that is typed or declared at Customs Entry Pedimento.

All this process may be done either by the Importer of Records in Mexico or the Customs Broker Agency doing the importation into Mexico. As you can see Mexican Customs Authority is now a day taking advantage of the technology, creating a big database of all the shipments when importing or exporting from Mexico.
