·         apply for training on use of the National Import System, and the National Export System, by filling in the attached form(s) and forward it by e-mail to the Customs Training Unit on [email protected].

Applications must be received by the 18th February 2019.

Those economic operators who intend to make use of the services of Custom Brokers to lodge their import and export declaration may opt not to apply for this training. Subsequently, Customs Training Unit will inform applicants of the dates the courses will be held.
