How to Buy and Export Precious Metals, Gems and Jewelry from Burundi

Precious metals, gems and jewelry are key export commodities for developing countries. Burundi is a small producer of gold, silver, copper and other non-ferous minerals with potential for increasing output. Armed conflict and political instability in recent years have made it difficult to conduct business in Burundi. The risks associated with doing business there remain high, but due to its strategic location, the country can be an important trade partner for suppliers of raw materials as well as finished goods. This article explains how you can buy and export precious metals, gems and jewelry from Burunde step by step:

Understanding Import and Export Procedures in Burundi

Burundi imports and exports a wide range of products, services and capital equipment. If you are looking to trade with Burundi, you will need to know about its import and export procedures.

They then have 30 days to submit the necessary documents to the NCA as well as pay their import fees and taxes. – Customs Clearance: To get their cargo cleared at the port of entry, importers need to submit their documents to the Central Inter-Organizational Inspection Office (CIOO). The CIOO issues the importer’s declaration of goods and issues an inspection notice that is valid for 10 days. The importer then has to present their documents to customs for clearance. Customs then issues a Customs Administrative Advice (CAA) for imported goods. – Payment of Taxes and Duties: Once the importer’s documents have been processed, the relevant agencies issue tax and duty invoices. The importer then has 10 days to pay these fees.
