Additional information

A clearing agent is a professional who can handle all customs clearance processes and steps involved with getting your goods onto their way. Their services usually include getting appropriate certificates, booking storage space at warehouses, arranging for payment of any applicable fees and communication with customs, border and logistics personnel at the border post, airport or port.
Most clearing agents can also arrange for your goods to be picked up from your factory and arrange transport on your behalf. For these services additional charges apply.

The List of clearing agents approved by RRA can also be found on RRA website / customs services / licensing of agents / updated list of clearing agencies.
