David Eales, on behalf of Excel Shipping Limited in Hornchurch.

We run services to this destination so can help with rates and anything else you may need once you have found buyers in Nigeria. It is worth noting though that importing into this country can be very difficult and your buyers or final client in NIgeria may need to apply for permission to allow the goods to be imported. There is a procedure called the Form M requirements which have to be started in Nigeria to allow any item to be imported.If you need any further help in relation to this or rates to move your shipment please contact us.

Kind regards

HMRC Advisor, on behalf of HM Revenue & Customs in G67.

For exports of wine outside the EU, you will need to prepare and submit a Customs export declaration.

Export declarations have to be submitted to the Customs computer system known as CHIEF (Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight) electronically. Details of the current requirements for completion of the declarations can be found in Volume 3, Part 1.9 of the UK Tariff however we would recommend that you contact a freight forwarder who can prepare and submit declarations directly onto CHIEF on your behalf.

You will need to obtain a Customs commodity code for the goods, and depending on the type of goods involved, you may require more than one.

More detailed information on the above can be found in our Public Notice No.275 a copy of which is available from our website at www.hmrc.gov.uk > Quick Links – Library, Official Statistics > Publications > Notices, Information Sheets and other reference materials > Import, export and international trade > Public Notices > Yes to open site > Scroll to notice required if necessary.

Adding to what Dave Eales noted regarding 'Form M' requirements; in Nigeria we have the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC).
www dot nafdac dot gov dot ng “You must take (NAFDAC) seriously”.

However, you would need agents or reps in Nigeria to handle these issues on your behalf, they tend to be very effective.

Importing into Nigeria is difficult but the huge rewards for those who have successfully done this can explain why.

However, as in all businesses any where, you need to find and understand the local target market.

I have just returned from Nigeria where we have just implemented a marketing strategy that could allow a safe and easy entry into the Nigerian Market.
