(KYC) Norms for Shipment Clearance

  • All shipments sent from or received into India need KYC documents (Government recognized Identity and Address proof) to be presented to Customs during shipment clearance (reference: Customs Circular No. 9/2010).
  • Absence of these documents will mean clearance delay as shipments will go into Customs Bond until KYC documents are provided by the shipper or consignee based in India.
  • The below table provides more information about KYC documents required for shipment customs clearance. As a shipper or consignee, you can refer to the type of document that you need to submit based on type of your organization – in the table below.

Parcel Chief asks for personal information and ID proofs to maintain records and forward to the carrier company along with the shipment. The customer's information is safe with us and it won't be shared with anyone else.
