The Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) is informing the business community, the public and importers that it will start clearing used motor vehicles at its Customs Inland Ports in Blantyre, Lilongwe and Mzuzu.
The Authority will be clearing the used motor vehicles on a 60-day pilot phase starting with used motor vehicles imported through Songwe Border Station from 19th May 2020.
Currently, all imported used motor vehicles are cleared at the border and the clearing of the used motor vehicles at inland ports will allow importers to properly plan for their businesses.
MRA will issue Customs Transit Form (T1) to importers of used motor vehicles to enable them to enter Malawi under Customs Transit Bond. The Authority shall clear the used motor vehicles at its inland ports within ten days from the day of importation.
MRA would like to inform importers that it has engaged designated Customs Clearing Agents who will be clearing the used motor vehicles during the implementation of the pilot phase of the project. The designated clearing agents include Manica, Combine Cargo, MPK Freight and Bridge Shipping. The Authority will roll out the project to other border stations depending on the success of the pilot phase.
MRA would therefore like to encourage importers, the business community and the public to take advantage of the new facility to import used motor vehicles under T1 for Customs clearance at Blantyre, Lilongwe and Mzuzu Customs Ports.
