Turkey – Introduction of Electronic Clearance
Last updated 05/11/2015 at 17:00
We have been advised by our agent in Turkey concerning the introduction of Electronic clearance which requires that ALL shipments are pre entered into customs systems in Turkey prior to arrival of material. The descriptions and harmonised tariff codes need to be advised on all goods which may mean that shipments being tendered to Viva Xpress Logistics without these two pieces of information will be held until they are supplied.
NB: It is the responsibility of the original shipper/manufacturer to provide this accurate information and mis-declarations will result in penalties which Viva Xpress Logistics will be billing back to your company.
If you require assistance in locating a tariff code number for a commodity, then this service is available by calling the H.M Customs Tariff Classification Service on +44 (0)1702 366077 between the hours of 09.00 – 17.00 Monday to Thursday and 09.00 – 16.30 on Fridays.
