The Burkina Faso ECTN certificate is also called CTN certificate or electronic CTN. According to the decree issued by the Burkina Faso Custom regulators all shipments with a final destination of Burkina Faso,  except air cargo, must accompany e-CTN with a valid URN number.

Since Burkina Faso is a landlocked country, most of the sea cargo transporter via Ivory Coast, Ghana, Togo or Benin. In this case, you also need to check the CTN/BSC procedure for the transit country.

An ECTN is a document that contains all details of the shipment, such as the BL number, description of the cargo, involved parties, value of the goods, etc. Once the document is approved and all charges are paid, the ECTN will receive a URN number. This URN number should be mentioned on the bill of lading and is required by the CBC control.

  • Bill of Lading – a Draft copy can be used for the draft.

What Our Customers Says?

Mishri Limbu CTN Customer

I was given the responsibility of looking after logistics of a substantial, 500 container project that had to be shipped from India to Burkina Faso in an around 6-month timeframe for building cement grinding plant. Initially, I knew nothing about ECTN certificate. Given the volume and the risk of the project, I was allocated a full week for ECTN research. Finding Getctn.com has led to the successful accomplishment of my groundwork within several minutes. Now the whole project is completed and I want to thank the Getctn team for their patient support over the past 6 months.

Mishri Limbu

As a group of industrial engineering students we had crowd funded project to build water sources in several parts of African continent. In order to ship necessary materials and recourses waiver certificates were mandatory. We are more than grateful for GetCTN timely service which in a way was also cheaper than others.

Michael Weils, Southampton University

Now we consider them a strategic business partner and plan to work many more years.
