Temporary Entry
Last published date:

A new or temporary business may apply to the Ivoirian Ministry of Commerce, Industry, and SME Promotion for Admission Temporaire, or temporary entry, of its goods that will be processed and then re-exported.  The Ministry of Commerce and Industry grants this status on a case-by-case basis for goods that will be re-exported to other countries.  Prior authorization from the Ministry of Commerce, Industry, and SME Promotion’s Customs Office and a deposit are required.  Exceptional or occasional temporary admission includes goods for repair, exhibitions, fairs, and testing.  Temporary admission of company material implies suspension of customs taxation of the materials, unless its status changes to a final import.
