Requirements & Prohibited Items

  • Cars, trucks, caravans, used agricultural machinery should always be steam cleaned before sea freighting to Nigeria from UK, to remove all soil residue and pests.
  • Similar to most countries you should check with the Nigerian Buyers Customs Broker, if the goods being shipped can be imported into Nigeria. The Customs Broker can confirm before goods are shipped from UK to Nigeria, if they can be imported without any restrictions. Normal prohibited items will include, but not limited to the following: Cash, Diamonds and Bullion, precious metals, live animals, drugs, firearms and ammunition.
  • ISPM15, timber packing and marking requirements. Most countries around the globe, including the UK, require that any timber packaging used when shipping is heat treated and has the appropriate HT and/or ISPM15 stamps visible on the timber package, to prevent any insects or pests transferring and affecting agriculture or forests in the country of destination.

 Export Goods in Transit Cargo Insurance, for Nigeria.

  • It is important to arrange Goods in Transit Cargo Insurance cover, in the event of a damage or pilferage incident during Sea or Air transport to Nigeria from UK.
  • Your Cargo is not insured, unless you arrange via your own companies Insurance brokers, or you ask your Freight Forwarder to quote for Goods in Transit Insurance cover and you accept their quote in writing.
  • You should not rely on the transporters to Nigeria’s liability insurance cover, under their Air Waybill or Ocean Bills or Lading terms and conditions. This does not equate to cargo insurance cover for the value of your goods and may rely on some proof of negligence by the carriers, which is naturally difficult to prove.
  • We recommend that you must suitably export pack your goods to withstand the normal multiple handling, transhipping or stacking it will endure throughout a normal International Sea or Air movement from UK to Nigeria.
  • Insurance companies and transport carriers may refuse to accept any claims, if cargo is not suitably export packed.

Customs Import Advice 

  • It is the overseas buyers’ responsibility to check that they can import the goods they are buying from UK. We recommend that you check with your Nigerian buyers, that they have a local import customs broker, who can advise the buyers on the customs documentation requirements for importing the products you are shipping from the UK to Nigeria.
  • The importers Customs Brokers can advise on Nigeria import duty and taxes, customs HS tariff classifications, if any prohibited or restricted goods and full documents required from UK This will avoid any issues of trying to import goods that Nigerian Customs will not allow to be imported and thus prevent wasted storage or other costs having to ship back to the UK.
  • Local Nigerian Customs have implemented a law where Cargo Tracking Note (CTN) is required for all Import & Export shipments into/from Nigeria. This will allow Nigeria authorities to carry out a risk assessment on cargo and ships. By using a CTN, cargoes can be tracked from port of load to port of discharge. It is expected that CTN will check decades of fraudulent declarations by importers on arrival at the ports.
  • Please note that the information on special requirements for shipping from UK to Nigeria is current and may change from time to time. We suggest that this is re checked with the Nigerian buyers Customs Brokers before shipping, in the event of changes to special requirements or new regulations/requirements in place at time of shipping from UK to Nigeria.
