As per Saudi Arabia Customs Authorities instructions, goods imported into Saudi Arabia require Import of Record identification to be presented at the time of customs clearance. The failing to provide the required documents will lead to a delay until the necessary documents are provided. This new import procedure is effective since September 13th, 2015.
To ensure a continuous and smooth on time delivery of your shipments, we kindly ask you to take note of the following instructions:
- All goods with a value exceeding USD 1,000 shipped to individuals require a copy of the Importers National ID (or valid Iqama for non-nationals) when submitting a shipment to customs for clearance.
- All goods with a value exceeding USD 300 shipped to Commercial Entities require a copy of the Importers company registration number (Trade License)
You can back up a smooth customs clearance by putting the commercial registration or ID numbers on the Air Way Bill and invoice. This will help to avoid delays and a potential return to the sender. Please contact our team for that.
