Turkey’s PAGEV: Consulate approval for Iranian imports to be abolished
In this framework, the Turkish and Iranian high-level committees agreed to abolish the requirement for consulate approval for the invoices, following the negotiations which took place in the Ministry of Customs and Trade on September 25, 2017. The agreement is expected to be formally finalized by Wednesday.
Right before the news about the abolishment of the approval, positive steps had been taken in Turkey regarding the requirement of consulate approval for all Iranian imports certified in other countries. Accordingly, the consulate approval on the shipment invoice would be sufficient provided that sales invoice was issued in another country for Iranian imports. However, it was stated the number of the shipment invoice with the consulate approval should correspond with the sales invoice issued by the third country.
The implementation of the requirement for consulate approval for the invoices the imports of Iranian goods, which came into force on July 24, 2017, was provisionally suspended on July 29, 2017 due to complications in the procedure of customs clearance, thanks to PAGEV’s efforts. The aforementioned implementation re-entered into force on September 21, 2017 and any imports of Iranian materials were subject to the necessary approvals from the consulate.
