New Mozambique Customs System will reduce processing time

Customs processing times for goods imported into Mozambique will be lowered from the current minimum of three days to just a few hours with the introduction of a modern customs processing system, Mozambican daily newspaper Notícias reported.

Known as the Single Electronic Window, the new tool is made up of two computer systems – the integrated customs management system and the operators’ mechanism.

Via the Single Electronic Window importers are able to submit the customs declaration and pay all fees via a retail bank before the actual unloading of the goods, which will reduce their processing time.

Rosário Fernandes, chair of the Mozambican Tributary Authority said that the transmission network for the Single Window (Janela Única), managed by MCNet (Mozambique Community Network), would show the cargo manifest and customs declaration from carriers or owners of the goods, processing, payments inspection and management of the output of imported goods.

MCNet is 60 percent-owned by the Escopil Internacional and SGS Moçambique consortium and by the State and Confederation of Economic Associations (CTA), each with a 20 percent stake. Source: macauhub
