Customs clearance is a process of declaring goods that are transported to or from a country to the customs authority. The purpose of customs clearance is to ensure that all applicable import duties and taxes are paid and that goods comply with all relevant regulations.
To clear customs, businesses or individuals must provide detailed information about the shipment, including its value, origin, destination, and contents. Businesses or individuals may also be required to submit supporting documentation, such as invoices or bills of lading. Once customs officers have cleared the shipment, they can release it for delivery.
DOCUMENTS REQUIRED FOR CUSTOMS CLEARANCE-
- Commercial invoice
- The packing list includes details of the shipment, such as weight, quantity, and manufacturer.
- Bill of Lading to confirm that the shipment has been loaded on a mode of transport.
