Complaint
As per attached document dated 24 January 2020 entitled Payment of Customs Fee for the Issuance and Extension of the Temporary Import Licence for Vehicles, Mozambique has started charging foreign transporters a fee of Mets 750.00 per vehicle for the issuance of the Temporary Import Permit.

The issue of a Temporary Import Permit in the SADC region is not charged for at any other Port of Entry.

By allowing a charge of this nature that provides for no service, we are simply encouraging all member states to start charging for what has always been free of charge.  
Progress update note
On 2 March 2020, DRC Focal Point requested Mozambique focal points to communicate feedback with regard status on how the NTB can be resolved.
