Documents required from the supplier:

Commercial invoice - declaration of parcel - certificate of origin - bill of lading if the shipment is made by it, but if it is by a separate shipping company, the company provides it to you after paying the shipping costs - quality certificates or fumigation of wood products.
Or a health certificate in the case of foodstuffs. The required certificates must be verified through the customs broker, as they will be an obstacle to entering the shipment if it is not fully available.


In some countries, you must document the certificates of their consulate in the country of origin, and most exporters are aware of this and can do this in exchange for a fee.

The documents required from the importer:

Form 4 required by the bank through which you transferred your money and the value you transferred and the type of contract - commercial or industrial register - tax card - import card - customs broker card - general authorization from the broker in customs.
