As from 8 January 2019, BTX will not be printed-out but will be sent in electronic form from the PCDC Free Zone Department directly to the Customs Office.

Instead of the BTX form received today, as from January 8th, you will only get a unique BTX reference number with which you will trace the BTX at the Customs Office to complete the clearance process.

For Community goods, the acceptance of BTX by the customs will be sent electronically to PCDC and will be sufficient for the release of your goods – there will be no printed BTX document with signatures.

For non-Community goods at this stage, the procedure for delivering a customs license to the Free Zone Department will remain unchanged.

We will inform you in advance about any new changes.
