Ebin: Thank you very much for sharing this great knowledge. I guess there is some correction required in the second last paragraph. I guess it should be EGM instead of IGM. Please see below extract. "What is IGM? How does an Import General Manifest work? Once after moving goods out of country, filing of IGM by shipping carrier is a legal requirement. After sailing vessel or aircraft crossed respective country’s territorial border, the shipping carrier files with customs, the details of shipment moved out of country based on the details of shipping bill. This IGM is one of the proofs adopted by customs department for exports." Otherwise, simple language and clarity of thought makes this website outstanding. Very Well!
