NIGERIAN CUSTOMS: Importation made easy

The Federal Ministry of Finance has recently released the New Import Guidelines, Procedures and Documentation Requirements, which now gives the Nigeria Customs Service the sole responsibility of Destination Inspection, which is inspecting goods at the port of entry into Nigeria. 

The implication of this new process is designed to be easier and more efficient for importers and has taken effect from December 1, 2013. With this new process in place, importers or their agents will be able to start clearing their goods before they even arrive in Nigeria. What makes this process quick is the completion of the (PAAR), the Pre-Arrival Assessment Report, which now takes only 6 hours, yes 6 hours, rather than 6 days as was the case before. And why is PAAR so easy to complete? Because the Nigeria Customs Service has simplified its processes, simple enough for just about anybody to get on board. 

So for more information on completing PAAR, click on this link - Customs.gov.ng/Guidelines
