On receiving the official documents (Invoice, Packing list, Bill of Lading, Delivery note and other Certificates) we make a preliminary assessment regarding the duties and taxes (based on the specific commodity code and the seller’s delivery terms) and we inform the importer about the cost. When the importer gives their approval, we continue with the customs clearance at the competent customs. Upon completion of the process which includes the payment of the relevant duties and taxes, we deliver the import license to the importer so that they can pick up the goods. We can also undertake the transport of the goods from the Customs office to the customer’s headquarters or the indicated destination.

(b) The entry of goods from third countries, other than those referred to in paragraph a.
