Haiti - Economy : A license from the Ministry of Commerce compulsory for certain products
As part of the decree of March 13, 2018 regulating the importation of products, Jonas Coffy, the Minister of Trade and Industry (MCI) informs importers of the obligation to hold as of October 1 2020, a license from the Ministry of Commerce for certain products.

Thus, importers of products including salt intended for human and animal food, soft wheat flour, edible oil, cement and steel intended for construction will have to fill out a form from the Ministry which will serve as a license. This form is available on the MCI website and must be submitted in quadruplicate to the competent services, before the goods arrive in customs.

Note that this form must be accompanied by a favorable opinion from the MCI or the Ministry of Public Works depending on the type of goods. For cement and steels intended for construction, a pro-forma invoice, address of the supplier/manufacturer as well as that of the importer and the relative technical specifications are required.

Regardless of the goods covered by this license, the copy of the tax clearance and the Company's Professional Identity Card (CIP) must accompany this document.

If the importer does not comply with this provision, the goods will be seized. Any declaration made after the arrival of the goods will be subject to a penalty corresponding to 10% of the CIF (Cost Insurance Freight) value of the goods.

In addition, the MCI informs all importers of these products that, from now on, transport will be done only by sea.
