TEHRAN, Iran, Sept.22
Iran's Customs Administration officials seek to release the sediments stuck in ports and customs, without the necessity of importers to pay foreign currency for them, Trend reports via Tasnim news agency.
The custom officials have announced that some 8 million tons of imported goods were stored at country's ports from the start of the current Iranian year (started March 20,2020) until September 19.
Of those 8 million tons of goods, 1 million were container goods, while the remaining 7 million - non-container goods (including 3.5 million tons of necessary goods, 2.7 tons of goods that should've been released immediately).
One of the major problems in releasing the imported goods is the long process of registering orders, transferring foreign currency and the banking procedures.
Iran's Customs Administration has also said that the goods that were put into storage before July 10, cau be released without applying for the tracking code, and the importers do not need to pay foreign currency for them.
