Egypt Ocean Freight Advance Registration of Cargo Information

In accordance with new Egypt customs regulations, an Advance Registration of Cargo Information is now required prior to moving any ocean freight cargo to Egypt.

The Importer has to register the shipper and all the details related to the shipment that he is importing with Egyptian customs prior to moving the freight. Accordingly, the shipper will get an ACI number that will need to be mentioned on all the commercial documents and the bill of lading.

Egypt has started a trial period, which will now run until 1 October, 2021. Any shipments that are shipped after 1 October without the ACI number will have to be re-exported and all relevant fines will be applied.
