In this section of Gezdrazi Group's services, we will completely explain the customs clearance procedures, step by step and provide details about each step:
Step 1: order registration
Order registration is the first and most important step that must be done for customs clearance. The invoice preparation, packing form and order registration through the Ministry of Industry and Mines are done at this stage, and then in order to register the goods specifications in the relevant system, we enter the order registration department, bill of lading, warehouse receipt, inspection certificate and certificate of origin and then we will go to other sections of customs clearance.
Step 2: Registering the declaration in the system
At this stage, you should refer to the official website of customs at www.irica.gov.ir and register your declaration. To declare the goods at customs, you will need documents such as final import declaration, bill of lading, copy of commercial card, order registration permit, proforma, packing list, exploitation license, etc.
The amount of the entry fee will be calculated at the stage of completing the declaration, and this increases the importance of accuracy in completing the declaration form. At the end, the system will give you a serial number and a reference number.

Step 4: checking the goods on the route
The goods will be placed in one of the three green, yellow and red routes for examination by the expert. In order to get more information about these three routes, in this section, we will explain theme below:
If the goods is placed in the green route, it means that the items mentioned in the declaration such as the value of the goods, tariff and other specifications are approved and it will directly enter the payment stage. In that section, if a permit is needed, the process of obtaining the permit is done immediately in the same section, and finally customs and tax payments are made and the goods are prepared for loading.
At this stage, the expert must examine the goods and check the documents, tariff and type of goods, and then the goods enter the stage of obtaining a permit. After obtaining the permit, the goods finally go through to the next steps for approval and loading.
The red route is a different route in which the goods are first evaluated by an expert, and after the specifications of the goods are checked, the relevant expert determines the value of the goods and the authenticity of the documents, and then the rest of the steps are carried out until the goods are loaded.
Step 5: Obtaining the necessary permits
Your desired goods may need to obtain some special licenses and certificates. These certificates include standards, telecommunications, atomic energy, medical equipment, Ministry of Roads, Jihad, etc. At this stage, Gezdrazi Group will obtain the licenses related to your goods as quickly as possible.
Stage 6: Conformity of tariff and documents
The experts will match the customs tariff of the goods with the documents of the goods and re-check the permits of the previous stage and if the documents are correct, they will confirm it.
Step 7: Issuing the receipt
After the final confirmation, an amount is paid by the owner of the goods in cash, and then a green customs clearance slip is issued, and the owner of the goods must take the necessary actions to clear the goods from customs.
Step 8: issuing the goods loading permit
At this stage, the clearance document for the desired product is issued and loading is allowed. At this stage, the cost of storage, including the cost of loading and unloading, keeping the goods in the warehouse, insurance of the goods, etc., must be paid.
Step 9: Start loading goods

In the last step, the goods are re-checked and allowed to exit the customs.

The duration of the goods stop at the customs also depends on various factors and according to the rules, this time will be different for all types of goods (the stop period for imported food is less than the stop period for industrial equipment and supplies).
