Starting from 1st May 2020, PAI has introduced a new online system for Importers to obtain a Clearance Certificate based on a valid TIR. This Clearance Certificate is issued by PAI and should be requested by the Importer by registering their entity through this link: https://ksm.pai.gov.kw/en/pages/default.aspx
Upon registration and submission of online request for the Clearance Certificate, verification is carried out by PAI. The Importer is required to pay the mandated fees after PAI’s successful verification to generate the Clearance Certificate. Once the Clearance Certificate is generated, the Kuwaiti Customs are automatically notified for the final release of the shipment.
The User Guides for registering Importer’s entity on PAI’s new online system and requesting for a Clearance Certificate can also be accessed through the link: https://ksm.pai.gov.kw/sites/cm/en/Pages/Default.aspx
