The Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) is informing importers, the public and the business community that it has started clearing used motor vehicles at its Customs Inland Ports in Blantyre, Lilongwe and Mzuzu.
The Authority began clearing used motor vehicles on a 60-day pilot phase starting with used motor vehicles imported through Songwe Border Station.
The Customs clearance of the used motor vehicles at inland ports will de-congest borders and enhance social distancing following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
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 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 public and the business community to take advantage of the new facility to import used motor vehicles under T1 for Customs clearance at Blantyre, Lilongwe and Mzuzu Customs Ports.
Furthermore, the Authority would like to encourage importers of used motor vehicles to pre-clear their vehicles though the Pre-Clearance Facility to avoid congestion at the border.
Pre-Clearance is a facility that allows importers and exporters to submit declarations and supporting documents to Customs for processing before the arrival of goods at the border.
