Documents required for Importing and Exporting
When bringing goods into or out of Malaysia, traders must provide the following documents to customs officials.
- Customs Export or Import Declaration.
- Commercial Invoice.
- Bill of Lading.
- Packing List; and
- Certificate of Origin
To start an import-export business, you need to understand the market, the products you want to trade, and the import-export regulations of the countries involved. You also need to have a strong network of suppliers and customers.
It is important to note that the import-export process in Malaysia can vary depending on the type of products, the country of origin/destination, and the regulations involved.
We recommend that you work with an experienced freight forwarder or customs broker who can guide you through the process and ensure that all the requirements are met.
Import and Export Requirements
Some products require a license or Approved Permit (AP) before importing/exporting. These include motor vehicles, iron and steel, heavy machinery and chemicals. A complete list of products requiring a license can be found on the MITI website. Points to note about the AP process:
APs are issued by Permit Issuing Agencies (PIAs), i.e., the relevant ministries relating to products being exported or imported. Contact details for relevant PIAs can be found on myTRADELINK, Malaysia’s trade facilitation portal.
AP applications can be made via myTRADELINK through an electronic permit (ePermit).
- It takes three to seven working days for an AP to be issued; once issued, it will be valid for six months.
No AP is required for all other products, but import/export declarations should be submitted online through eDeclare on myTRADELINK. In addition, other supporting documents include an invoice, packing list and Bill of Lading/Air Waybill.
Import and Export Processes
The process of importing and exporting goods into Malaysia can be complex and detailed, but here’s a general overview:
- Registration and Licenses
- Identify and Contact Suppliers/Buyers
- Pre-shipment Arrangements
- Customs Clearance
- Delivery and Payment
Import-export can be a mess if you don’t clearly understand the regulations and requirements involved. Dealing with customs procedures and documentation requirements can make import-export messy and time-consuming.
Besides that, the complexities of currency exchange rates, shipping, and logistics may also turn import-export into a logistical nightmare.
