Import Services

All merchandise coming into Ghana must clear Ghana Customs and Border Protection and is subject to Customs duty, unless specifically exempted by law. Clearance involves a number of steps, which include inspection and appraisement. Import shipping and customs law requires that duty be paid on goods entering the county, according to its official classification from a tariff schedule. Sometimes a surety bond is required, and some types of goods must meet admissibility standards, with proper permits secured in advance by the importer.
