When completing customs procedures, the necessary documents include customs declaration, referral, invoice, booking. These documents are scanned, digitally signed and attached to the V5 electronic system of the customs. When the documents are correct and coincide, the customs office will clear the goods for export.

Procedures for C / O certification:

To obtain a certificate of origin of shallots requires the seller to have the following documents: customs declaration, invoice, freight bill of lading, purchasing list or purchase invoice. When applying for C / O, importers will enjoy tax incentives when importing, helping importers save costs, increase competitiveness and help sellers to sell more goods. We therefore recommend that exporters need a certificate of origin for each export shipment.
