Registration with customs for an import export license, also called an importer’s / exporter’s customs code or customs registration. Required for all individuals or businesses that are importing / exporting goods for commercial reasons or goods over R2,500 (either once off or throughout the year).
This code is required both to clear goods at customs and to make foreign payments through a bank. The license is valid for the lifetime of yourself or your business. It is advisable to apply for both the import and export license at the same time as merchandise traded may be faulty and needs to be returned or you may need a refund at the bank.
