Summary Customs Export Procedures by Land

Customs export procedures refers to the document verification and physical inspection of goods by customs agents. Customs processes may vary depending on the product being exported and, in some cases, the end use of the product. A standard process involves requesting packing assistance [  M 19 ] and then submission into the Single Electronic Window of: commercial invoice, insurance certificate, certificate of origin (if required [ P 17 ] for SADC, P18 for other destinations), sanitary and phytosanitary certificates [ P 12.1, P 12.2, P 12.3 ], other special export licenses (e.g. [ P14.1, P14.2, P14.3 ]. The system will create a notification for payment, which should be settled. Customs officials will then verify the documentation and release goods to be transported to the border, where customs officials will carry out final checks and release the goods.
