Create an ECTN/SPN/BESC/waiver for Ghana

Are you shipping cargo to Ghana via Tema or Takoradi or via transit ports in neighboring countries (like Ivory Coast, Togo, …)?

With Magnotrade you can create the required ECTN/SPN/BESC/waiver fast and easy.

Requested documents for Ghana ECTN/SPN/BESC/waiver issuance are:

  • Dated Bill of Lading (draft to start issuance – final BL for validation of the ECTN)
  • Commercial invoice in Euro or USD (pro-forma invoices are not allowed)
  • Validated Export customs declaration

Following supplementary information is furthermore required:

  • Country of origin of the cargo
  • Shipper’s email address
  • Receiver’s email address
  • HS code
  • Incoterm

After validation you will receive the ECTN/SPN/BESC/waiver number to be transmitted to the shipping line. A copy of the final BL with sailing date and ECTN N° is required for validation of the ECTN/SPN/BESC/waiver.

It’s important to issue an ECTN/SPN/BESC/waiver as cargoes arriving without valid ECTN/SPN/BESC/waiver will be blocked for delivery by the local customs.

A Ghana ECTN/SPN/BESC/waiver is also mandatory for shipments in transit to Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger.
