Argentina Eases Import Licensing Requirements

Wednesday, December 30, 2015

The government of new Argentinean President Mauricio Macri has overhauled the country’s import licensing system as part of its ongoing efforts to reduce the complexity of foreign trade procedures and facilitate cross-border commerce. Click here to register for an STTAS webinar reviewing these changes in more detail.

On Dec. 21, the Comprehensive Import Monitoring System (Sistema Integral de Monitoreo de Importaciones (SIMI)) replaced the DJAI (Declaración Jurada Anticipada de Importación, or sworn advance import declaration) system for managing and processing import licenses. Through SIMI the government will issue automatic licenses for imports for consumption within Argentina of products under virtually all tariff lines. Licenses will generally be issued within ten days, greatly increasing predictability for importers.

Non-automatic import licenses will be required for specific goods due to their sensitive nature, such as textiles, toys, footwear, leather goods, home appliances, metallurgical products, automobiles and auto parts, tires, motorcycles and bicycles (click here for a list of tariff codes associated with goods requiring non-automatic import licenses). These licenses will also be issued within ten days unless the application is incomplete, in which case authorities will have up to 30 days to complete their review and make a decision.

Applicants for either type of import license must submit through SIMI the same type of information required under the DJAI system; e.g., importer name and tax number and quantity, value, brand, model and origin of the product.

For more information on Argentina’s revised import licensing requirements, please contact Roberto Morinigo via email or by phone at 54.11.5984.3955 Ext. 1055.
