Jun 22, 2022 | Egypt

Egyptian Customs published a press release on their website in April stating that its Advanced Cargo Information (ACI) platform for electronic transmission of shipment data and customs clearance is now available for all air shipments (previously available for ocean shipments) on an experimental basis and will become mandatory in October 2022.

Effective October, the following information shall be clearly indicated in the Certificate of Inspection (CoI) and all other shipment-related documents for regulated product shipments:

  • Advanced Cargo Identification (ACID) Number – A 19-digit number obtained by the importers by registering themselves on the Nafeza platform
  • Importer Tax Number
  • Exporter’s Commercial Registration Number
