Abu Dhabi: Abu Dhabi Customs, within the framework of the Abu Dhabi Program for Effortless Customer Experience, has revealed the provision of clearing goods for non-residents and unregistered companies from outside the UAE through Abu Dhabi’s land, sea, and air outlets.
The provision was introduced with the aim of facilitating the customer’s experience, reducing effort and time, as well as providing digital customs services in line with the best international practices, establishing Abu Dhabi as a global capital for investment and business.
The move coincided with International Customs Day, which marks the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the World Customs Organization.
The benefits of the new feature, available to individuals and companies, include the ability to log in using the UAE Pass, automated form-filling for some fields when using specific templates, and facilitating the completion of the clearance request through a single e-page for all smart devices.
The new feature of the updated clearance of goods service, via the Abu Dhabi Government’s unified services ecosystem, TAMM, further provides an effortless customer experience. Individuals, the business community, and companies from outside the UAE can benefit from using TAMM to clear their goods upon entering or exiting the customs ports through Abu Dhabi, as well as between free zones in the country, other emirates, or neighbouring countries.
The updated clearance of goods is further aimed at goods that are imported in cases of commercial entry, personal entry, clearance import, temporary admission of goods that are exported as well as re-exported, and in cases of re-export clearance or transit goods.
