The North America Region has its headquarters in Mexico City, Mexico. The Regional Office provides technical leadership, management and coordination of sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) issues with Mexico. Growing agricultural trade between the United States and Mexico has created a vital role for APHIS ensuring that new trade opportunities are realized and that existing trade between the two economies flows smoothly. The APHIS Mexico City office maintains technical working relationships with our Mexican counterparts to resolve Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) issues whenever they arise and provide needed capacity building to improve Mexico’s animal and plant health infrastructure.

The office also maintains direct contact with industry trade groups. This relationship contributes to maintaining the success of agricultural trade-related commercial activities between the two economies, helping ensure that they thrive. For example, APHIS provides certification at origin of a large number of Mexican commodities exported to the U.S., seeks to expand and maintain market access for U.S. agricultural products and also intervenes directly for shipments detained at Mexican ports of entry.  Due to the extensive shared border with Mexico, APHIS provides critical safeguarding to US agriculture, helping prevent the spread of animal and plant pests and diseases, including Mexican fruitflies, Asian Citrus Psyllid, Pink Bollworm, Boll Weevil, as well as Bovine Tuberculosis, Brucellosis and Cattle Fever ticks.

The North America Region has branch offices in Ciudad Juarez (Chihuahua), Ensenada (Baja California), Guadalajara (Jalisco), Lerdo (Durango), Los Mochis (Sinaloa), Matamoros (Tamaulipas), Mexicali (Baja California), Mexico City, Reynosa (Tamaulipas), Tapachula (Chiapas), Tijuana (Baja, California), and Uruapan (Michoacán).
