Azerbaijan hopes to simplify customs process

The Azerbaijan parliament is considering a draft law that would shorten the time to verify customs clearance on goods sent to the country, the United States - Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce announced on Tuesday.

The clearance process checks information compliance and original country, name and value of the item to make sure it matches what is on the customs declaration forms.

Currently customs officials can keep items and documentation up to three days to complete the process.

If the draft law passes, customs officials could only keep items and documentation up to two days.
