The Single Window Interface for Trade (SWIFT), would reduce interface with Governmental agencies, dwell time and the cost of doing business. CBIC had already executed major projects to automate Customs clearance processes and provide electronic data interchange (EDI) with all concerned. The objectives of SWIFT are in line with key programs of Government namely ‘Make in India’ and ‘Digital India’.

 

All Exporters / Importers and members of the trade are requested to take note of the facility of filing the documents on the Indian Customs EDI Gateway herein after referred to as ICEGATE. The facility for submission of documents through Service Centre and floppy submission would, however, continue to be available for the members of the trade at present. The details are available at

You are requested to kindly register yourself at ICEGATE portal for benefits such as self E-Filing of documentations, E-Payments and Real Time Tracking and Query Status.. For more details of registration at ICEGATE, exporters / importers are going through Annexure B and a detailed procedure on registration is available at ICEGATE website under the path www.icegate.gov.in  Downloads  Registration Demo.
