Import License process required in Importing country


This post explains about import registration procedures to be obtained from an importing country for importation.


If you need to import goods or services, a onetime registration procedure is being completed in most of the countries.  Such import export licence may be obtained from concerned government department of the importing country if required.


Usually, for import of goods, three categories of procedures are required.  One-time registration procedures to act as an Importer in importing Country, Specific import license to import goods if applicable, and certain certification from concerned government agencies of importing country related to each import wherever applicable. The certification from certain agencies of governmental and nongovernmental of exporting country may be obtained by exporter if applicable.

There is separate government agency that handles and regulates such specific products that issue import license or import permit.  However, specific licence to import goods is required only for certain specific goods restricted.  Based on trade policy of each country, categories of products classified under freely importable, restricted to import.  Prohibited list of goods are not permitted to import in to the country.  The list of restricted goods to import and prohibited list of goods are notified time to time by government of such importing country which may be referred the official website of respective department of importing country.
