How long can export customs take?
In the case of export customs clearance, it is important to complete all formalities. They can be made without the participation of the goods themselves, which means that the clearance time at the border itself is very short – it consists in presenting the relevant documents.
However, the formalities themselves can take days or weeks if the application is completed incorrectly and needs to be corrected. First of all, the time to collect all the required documents may be longer if the transport company does not know what attachments are necessary in the case of a declaration. Therefore, it is worth contacting a specialist at this stage, who will indicate what documents should be collected. Then fill in the application and send it to the system. For a skilled agent, it is several minutes of work, for beginners, even a whole day of searching for the right recipes and other important information.
Then wait for a reply, and after receiving an electronic confirmation of passing the clearance, you can cross the border and complete the export customs clearance procedure. At this last stage, however, it may turn out that the goods do not agree with the completed application due to some mistake made at an earlier stage. In this case, it will be necessary to write a correction of the declaration, which will result in significant delays in transport.
For this reason, it is better to hire an agent from Embetim who will handle the whole matter quickly and efficiently. You will be guaranteed no errors, and the check-in itself will be carried out quickly, without undesirable delays.
