Shipment Clearance Procedure

Once your trading company procures all required trading licenses after registering the company under the Dubai Customs and all required registrations are done, the import or export of goods can be initiated. Here are a few steps that must be followed for shipment clearance:

Registering of Goods

The first step in this process is filing the details of all the goods in the Montaji online portal. This product registration portal is owned by the Dubai Municipality and is set up to help the customers register all types of customer goods. The DM has made it mandatory for all traders to first register all the goods in this online portal before they can enter the Dubai Market.

Get Custom Code

The next step in import or export after filling the product details is registering in Montaji and send the details to Dubai customs. Once Montaji gives clearance then Dubai customs will permit traders. Custom code is generated after your application is approved. Using this registration code, the trading company will be allowed to register all goods by Dubai customs.
