Create an ECTN/BESC/waiver for Sierra Leone

Are you shipping cargo to Sierra Leone via Freetown or via transit ports in neighbor countries (like Guinea, Liberia, …)?

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

Requested documents for Sierra Leone ECTN/BESC/waiver issuance are:

  • Draft Bill of Lading
  • Commercial invoice
  • Freight invoice, specifying FOB-charges, sea freight, insurance, other charges,…
  • Validated Export customs declaration with BAR and QR code

All uploaded documents must be dated and pro-forma’s are not accepted.

Following supplementary information is furthermore required:

  • Country of origin of the cargo
  • 6-digit HS code
  • Incoterm
  • ETA arrival port

The shipper on the ECTN/BESC/waiver should correspond to the exporter on the commercial invoice.

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

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