Additional information

The consignment should be stuffed at a stuffing facility approved by the Commissioner of Customs, and the container should be secured with a shipper's seal. Export of the consignment is facilitated through Customs' special clearance, green channel. Therefore, the Head Verification Officer (HVO) will input a message to the Verification Officer (VO) through iCMS, exempting the consignment from verification, which is only done based on the risk analysis of the goods.
