What exactly is Customs Clearance?

Customs Clearance Service

Customs clearance is the method of documenting the arrival and departure of goods as they enter and leave a country.


Customs clearance requires calculating the VAT and duties that may be due on those goods, as well as following the correct procedure to ensure that the items enter or leave the country legally.

All worldwide shipments must pass through Customs before being allowed to enter or exit a country. This includes goods transported by sea, air, or land. After your goods have been Customs Cleared and Released, you will be given Customs Documents confirming that all Customs Duties and Taxes have been paid and your goods can be shipped to their destination.
