--- Quote from: eiram on September 27, 2006, 10:45:33 am --- Hi,

Has anyone had the experience to obtain a customs accreditation (CIIS) for import/export?
I just want to know if this process is complicated such that one needs to have a contact in the
department or it can be done on our own?  Any experiences shared will be greatly appreciated.

Add'l lang po.

Processing fee (Inspection fee) ng Customs personnel assigned to inspect your Office and Warehouse is depends on your office location. For example, Your office is within Manila, Paranaque, Mandaluyong, Makati... fees are ranging from 1,500 to 2,500. If outside Metro Manila, They demands much higher fees.

Other docs required aside from Edwin_edwin30 mentioned are:

> Electrec bill, telephone bill or water bill.
> Contact of leased, if the office is rented.
> Land title, if owned.
> Valid ID's

Aside from all mentioned required docs, Customs inspector need to take some photo of your office including the applicant's. This is a proof of customs personnel that he/she inspect your office.

Hope above helps.



What if my office is my residence, do they need to see a proper office set up there? Also, about the warehouse,
what if I am going to use a distribution company for warehousing services, etc. what details would they require from the distribution company and will they have to visit them too?  Please advise.
