Additional information

All types of transit are designed to ensure that any charges due on goods are secured. This is achieved through a system of guarantees and the key personnel in this regard are the principal and the guarantor. A guarantor is an individual or firm or any other body that is eligible to contract a legal third person (normally a bank or an Insurance company). He/she is responsible for payment of duties and other charges to which the principal has become liable as a result of any irregularity concerning the transit declaration.
The principle is responsible of goods from point of entry to destination office. In transit the principle has to provide a guarantee in order to ensure payment of any customs due or charges, which may be incurred in respect of the goods.
The transit bond is equivalent to the amount of import tax that would have been paid the goods were imported to Rwanda.
