Summary Import process for products of vegetable origin.
Description

To import vegetables and products of plant origin, the importer must be registered as a Foreign Trade Operator [P1] and as a user of the Single Electronic Window [P2]. A phytosanitary license [P5.1] must be obtained. The customs clearance operation [P9] consists of the customs broker submitting electronically via the Single Electronic Window (JUE) the following documents - Commercial Invoice, Insurance Certificate, Bill of Lading (or Bill of Entry or Air waybill), Bordereaux of Transfer, commercial bank, and the phytosanitary license. The system issues a payment advice, and the importer pays the fees and duties. Customs agents do a document check (which can be done before the goods arrive) and confirm the value, customs position etc. The goods are then physically examined, including non-intrusive inspection and inspection by officials of the Ministry of Agriculture. If everything is in order, a definitive exit permission is issued.
