Answer

Information on the Customs requirements for exporting is given in HMRC Public Notice 275. All notices can be found on our website www.hmrc.gov.uk under Quick Links > Library > Official Statistics – Publications – Notices, Info Sheets & Other Reference Materials > Import, Export & International Trade. The Public Notices are in numerical order.

I would also suggest that you contact the Kenyan Customs Authorities to ascertain if there are any import restrictions on such items.

Dear Suzanne

Check with you importer / buyer if they have clearing agent in Kenya and if so check what the importer needs to allow the goods to be imported.
