Madagascar BSC for Vehicle shipment2019-05-15T12:02:25+00:00

Q: Is it mandatory to have Madagascar BSC certificate for vehicle shipment?

A: As per the decree by the Malagasy Ministry of Finance dated 2007, all import shipments must obtain BSC certificate before arrival. However, vehicle shipments are exempt from such a requirement. Therefore, if you are transporting a car to Madagascar, you don’t need to apply for BSC for a vehicle. For cargo where you have car and other personal goods in container, you must acquire BSC only for personal items.

Note: In case you have a RORO shipment with spare parts, there is no need for Madagascar BSC entirely.

Tamatave specification of Madagascar BSC2019-06-26T13:29:12+00:00

In certain cases, the Bill of Lading of your shipment to Madagascar, will not show the Port of Discharge (POD) any ports in Madagascar. Instead, it consists of a transit port where the container is transferred to another vessel. The authorities in such scenarios cannot validate your BSC certificate. They specifically require exporters to submit BL with POD in Madagascar, for BSC Tamatave. You may seek to obtain the switch BL copy where the POD is in Madagascar. With that copy, we can proceed with your application.

Keep in mind, however, the cargo details on your BSC certificate will be the details found on the House BL. Read more or apply for the BSC Tamatave here
