Temporary Entry
Last published date:

Customs may authorize temporary entry of foreign merchandise with a temporary or partial suspension of duties for specific purposes, under the condition that the merchandise is re-exported within the time allowed and without any modification. A bond must be presented as the guarantee that the temporarily imported goods will be re-exported within the time allowed. Temporary entry of goods for transformation, manufacture, or repair is granted under laws that regulate free trade zones and services. The application form and all requirements for a temporary importation are available on the Customs General Directorate website.
