These include the following; Bill of lading / Airway bill, commercial invoice, exporting certificate, Contact telephone number and a valid email address.
NB: He or She delivers the hand-written letter to the Central Records Office located on the upper ground / reception at the Uganda Revenue Authority Tower.
The records officer will acknowledge receipt of the said letter by stamping it and gives a copy of the stamped letter to the applicant. He or she will be advised to wait for a response from Commissioner Customs.
The letter will be forwarded to the office of Commissioner Customs for processing.
