Exporting to Nigeria – Form M


We export to various countries around the world but have recently had to export some goods to Nigeria for the first time and we are being asked for Form M from the shipping company. We have asked the buyer for this form and they require us to provide a SON certificate, Can anyone offer advice on this?



Hi Adam

Above link will explain about SONCAP for exports to Nigeria and how to go about getting one. Do you airfreight to Nigeria or seafreight? we have an airfreight consol and can send under DDP terms only without a form M – approx. cost is £4.00 per kilo excl any NAFDAC costs if applicable.

Hope above helps
