Importing to the Philippines
Importing to the Philippines can be broken down into 2 Components. This is aside from contacting your supplier, choosing your commodity, and of course payment. Grouping the processes involved in importing to the Philippines, makes it more manageable and doable.
Step 1: Documentation
Securing import accreditation and permits for your commodity. The permits required may differ from product to product, depending on the commodity you are importing. For a list of requirements for importation, you can check this link https://dti.gov.ph/business/imports/import-facilitation#documentary-requirements
Now that we are done with the necessary permits, the next would be all the clearances. Again this is dependent of your product. You can refer to the link above for the additional requirements, however for the custom clearance procedures you can refer to this pdf from customs.gov.ph.
Step 2: Managing Logistics
Now to manage your actual shipment. This would mean booking and monitoring of your cargo from the point of origin to the destination, including any stop-overs if any. When it arrives to the port of destination, customs clearance must be made before moving your shipment from the port to the designated warehouse or final place of distribution. This may involve additional steps depending on the location of final delivery.
