  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   EG2021-0015

On June 15th, Egypt postponed its launch of the Advanced Clearance Information system (ACI). The Minister of Finance pushed the 1st of July deadline of full implementation of the new system to October 1st, 2021 citing the delay had been requested by several companies and diplomatic missions. The newly developed customs systems were launched in a trial mode on April 1, 2021 and now will continue being tested until the official launch in October. The delay will provide stakeholders more time to prepare and register within the designated platforms (CargoX for exporters and ACI for importers). The Egyptian government will no longer require Egyptian embassy authentication on certificates of origin as noted by the general manager of Misr Technology Services (MTS). Successful implementation of the new customs systems will reduce the average clearance time from the current 28 days to one day only as indicated by Minister of Finance
