In our continuous effort to achieve goals of the Dubai Paperless strategy; to reduce paper consumption and its cost to customers and for the purpose of simplifying and facilitating faster automated claim processing, Dubai Customs is pleased to announce that exit confirmation for the goods exiting through Jebel Ali port is now automatically performed through integration with DP World system.

 

In this regard, as part of initial phase, issuance. stamping, and submission of Exit / Entry Certificate paper will be discontinued, effective from May 01, 2021, for the goods exporting from Jebel Ali Free Zone and exiting through Jebel Ali port under FZ Transit Out movements without deposit.

 

In view of this, Exit / Entry Certificate paper will not be required now from customers to process ‘Non Remittance’ claims for FZ Transit out declarations without deposit (exporting from Jebel Ali Free Zone via Jebel Ali Port).

 


In case if any exit discrepancy is identified on claim due to exit automation and validation with DP World system, claim may be suspended and customer will be requested to provide export evidence. In such case, customer may approach DP World for issuance and stamping of Exit / Entry Certificate paper in order to furnish Exit / Entry Certificate to Customs for completion of claim processing.

 

Please note that, in this initial phase, Exit / Entry Certificate paper will be eliminated only for ‘Non-Remittance’ FZ Transit Out declarations without deposit exporting from Jebel Ali Free Zone via Jebel Ali Port.


Issuance and submission of Exit / Entry Certificate paper will be continued in the same existing manner for all other cases of deposit and non-deposit declarations.


Further, submission of Exit / Entry Certificate paper will not be eliminated and always be continued for the claims related to ship-stores, private berths, and bulk oil consignments even exiting through Jebel Ali Port.
