The first step in importing goods: Analysis

In this step, we analyze the goods that you have decided to import. Then we present you some of the analysis.

Types of imports

importing goods is conducted in two ways :

  • The goods are imported directly through land, air or sea from Iran. This model for import includes goods that are produced by companies not included in sanctions and can be directly sent to Iran.
  • The goods are not allowed to be directly imported to Iran because of the sanctions against Iran. These companies are based in European countries, China, Korea and so on.

Rahkar Tejarat Paya Company has another branch in Dubai that makes it possible for you to import your goods from the above countries.

In this case, first the intended goods is included in the bill of lading with the name our company in Dubai. With our coordination, it enters Jebel Ali UAE and then cleared. Eventually, it is unloaded from the transit and shipped to another transit in the name of the Islamic Republic f Iran.

Customers’ Demand in Importing Goods

Due to the sanctions, some people cannot buy and import their goods from other countries. These customers are also divided into two groups:

  • The first group knows its goods and the type of brand and only not able to buy and import the goods into Iran.
  • The second group only knows the type of goods they want to import into Iran and is unaware of the type of brands and countries that produce the goods.

For example, to give an example of the first group, it can be noted that the client will be present in our office according to the earlier schedule.
According to the description provided, we find out goods, quality, brand and country of the manufacturer of the good that the customer wants to buy.

Purchasing from Manufacturing Sources

In order to import the customer’s goods (for example, available in China), we first Inquire Price from the Chinese cargo. Then we provide a proforma invoice. This proforma invoice includes:

  • Cost of goods purchased
  • Shipping costs to Dubai
  • Shipping costs from Dubai to Bushehr
Shipping purchased goods

A person purchases the desired product from the country of the manufacturer and imports the goods in the following ways:

  • Importing goods through sea to the ports of the country.
  • The goods are shipped by air to all Iranian airports with cargo.
  • Goods purchased from European countries enter the country via the Bazargan customs through the land.

Now, we explain what steps should be taken by the customer for clearance.

Obtaining an import license from the Department of Commerce

At this stage of clearance, we must first obtain the relevant license from the Department of commerce. The licensing process is one of the most important steps. Before taking any actions, you must ensure that the license is issued by the Department of Commerce.

Investigating the requested goods license

In the next stage of customs clearance, we first need to examine the prohibition on imports of the intended goods. For this investigation, we ask the customer to provide us the HS code (a standardization system for product classification and identification).

The customer may not be aware of this code or the seller may not provide the tariff code. We can find this code for your goods. Then we start the licensing process according to the packing list (details of the cargo including volume, weight, so on.) and the invoice we receive from the customer.

Estimation of the cost of clearance

We find the relevant entry of the goods or the relevant import duty.
Customs duties are defined as the percentage of the total value of the invoice taken from the owner of the goods according to the amount set by the Ministry of Mines, Industry, and Commerce, which is modified at the beginning of each year.
We obtain the value of the goods in the TSC system. This system is declared by the value and customs department and its purpose is to examine the value of the intended product according to the country of the manufacturer and the brand.
Here we determine the cost of the customer’s packing, for example, with 30 CBM volume and 100kg weight with the specified invoice, i.e.:

Issuance of Bill of Lading (BL)

A bill of lading is a document that is of great importance, especially when claiming insurance coverage.

A bill of lading is a document that cannot be transferred to another person and indicates ownership of the good (Document of title).

The contents of the bill of lading include:

  • seller of goods
  • Container dimensions and gross weight (including the weight of goods and packaging)
  • Container number

For the customs clearance process, after the customer’s confirmation, a BL is issued for the import and is delivered to us.

Negotiable Warehouse Receipts (N.W.R)

After the goods are loaded in the customs, they must be unloaded prior to delivery to the warehouse. This happens in two ways:

  • The product is lightweight and can be unloaded in the warehouse.
  • The goods are overweight and are dumped in the enclosure with the container.

Warehouse Receipt is issued after importing, unloading and matching.
This Receipt contains the following information:

  • Name of the owner
  • Product Type
  • Packing
customs declaration of the goods

Now, we login on the customs website (EPL.IRICA.IR) for importing the goods after obtaining a license from the Department of Commerce. Then we register the customs declaration of the intended goods.

This process continues until a confirmation is received and the Declaration is sent to the next step.

Obtaining the required import licenses

After the customs clearance and after we sent the customs declaration and received the registration, Depending on the goods, there is a set of required licenses.

For example, importing foods requires a health certificate. Other licenses include:

  • Quarantine
  • environment and …
The final step of loading

After obtaining complete confirmation of the customs expert, we should obtain the required Certificate of loading.
With the customs certificate given by the customs system, we go to the customs office in person.
After receiving the Certificate of loading, the goods are loaded and sent to the customs exit gates.

This is where the expert in exit gates checks the declaration procedures and allows the goods to exit. customs Clearance ends at this stage.
