5 Documents that you need in order to export to Angola
Bill of Lading
A Bill of Lading (BL short form) is a legal document between the shipper of freight and the carrier. BL contains details such as type, quantity, destination, terms and the timeline of the shipment being carried. A Bill of Lading also serves as a receipt of goods on board, evidence of contact of carriage and document of title to the goods.
However, you must note that a Bill of Lading is NOT:
- A Contract between the Seller and the Buyer;
- A Contract of Carriage between the Carrier and Shipper.
Although the layout of the document may slightly change, the content is generally accepted throughout the world of trade. Below is the copy of a BL for sample use
A commercial invoice is a bill for the goods from the seller to the buyer. It describes the sold goods, and the amount that the customer must pay. This document should contain transaction information, exporter and importer information, and shipping information like the HS codes for each goods, incoterms, description of the goods etc.
A freight invoice is a bill for the consignee of freight by a carrier that contains description of the freight, the name of the shipper, the point of origin of the shipment, its weight, and the amount of charges.
If your commercial invoice includes the freight charges, you do not need to provide a separate freight invoice for exporting to Angola.
DU / Documento Unico / Import License for Angola
The DU document or Documento Unico is an Import Licence in Angola. A DU document is compulsory for all CNCA applications from 10/02/2015. एक DU दस्तावेज़ को फ़ील्ड 25e . पर समाप्ति तिथि के संदर्भ में मान्य होना चाहिए This document expiry date is normally 60 days from the date of DU issuance.
हालांकि, डॉक्यूमेंटो यूनिको या आयात लाइसेंस को छूट दी गई है यदि अस्थायी व्यवस्था के तहत गंतव्य पर शिपमेंट को मंजूरी दे दी जाएगी। Another instance where DU document is not an obligation is when the total FOB value is below 5000 USD.
अस्थायी शिपमेंट के मामले में, निर्यातक को एक पत्र प्रस्तुत करना आवश्यक है जिसमें पुष्टि की गई है कि कार्गो अस्थायी अभियान पर है। इस प्रकार के अभियान में मान्य CNCA प्रमाणपत्र पर DU नंबर का एक विशेष प्रारूप दर्ज किया जाएगा।
CNCA प्रमाणपत्र (Conselho Nacional de Carregadores) एक लोडिंग सर्टिफिकेट (LC) है जो 28/01/1994 से अंगोला में सभी वाणिज्यिक शिपमेंट के लिए एक अनिवार्य दस्तावेज है (डिक्री संख्या 19/94)
Each Bill of Lading covering cargo with the final destination to Angola must be accompanied by an Angola CNCA certificate. Angola CNCA certificate allows Angola Customs to control the traffic at the port, track the shipment, and enable consignees to clear their cargo at destination. If you fail to present the CNCA document at the destination, you will face severe consequences and a hefty fine.
