Customs Agency ready for one stop shop
The Customs Agency (DGA) announces that as of middle of March 2017, businesses will benefit from the new one stop shop for foreign trade (VUCE). Customs officers together with other government agencies involved in the control of imports, exports and transit are working in coordination through a single electronic system. The system will significantly speed up customs clearance and minimize corruption.
The “One Stop Shop” system is one of the most effective solutions to facilitate the international flow of goods, by reducing the number of import and export steps while simplifying procedures and minimizing the human factor in the passage of goods through the customs.
To disseminate the new procedure to the general public, the Customs Agency coordinated a meeting with representatives of 60 farm exporters and government officials of different agencies
The VUCE program will be the only government import / export program businesses will need to receive permits for the export, import and transit of merchandise as part of the Customs Integrated Management System (SIGA) at the DGA.
For Customs, the launching of VUCE is a vitally important tool to facilitate commerce,” stated Enrique Ramírez Paniagua, in a press release from the DGA.
