Step-by-Step Guide to Customs Clearance Process

Initially, you need to entrust your goods clearance order to a customs clearance office or company, as the process requires expertise. You must also possess a trading card for the clearance. If you lack a trading card, you can order the clearance through a customs clearance website and assign it to a company.

After registering the customs clearance order, the second step involves preparing the declaration form with information such as the type of goods, quantity, trademark, technical details, model, value, and weight of the goods. In the third step, depending on the type of goods, you need to submit documents such as an invoice, packing list, manifest, bill of lading, and health certificate.

Subsequently, in the fourth step, a relevant expert will verify the documents, and in the fifth step, the goods will be inspected based on the provided documents. In the sixth step, payment is made for issuing the customs clearance permit. Finally, the final inspection includes checking the goods upon exit, obtaining loading permits, and issuing an exit bill for the goods from the customs.
