Political control is exercised over the import of certain goods. Check with government sources
This is a document which authorises an economic agent to import certain goods and which can also specify the importing of a set amount of the goods. The import licence may sometimes be exclusive. It is an instrument for regulating and supervising the flow of imports.
Some countries may require import licences for certain or all goods. As an exporter it's normally your customer's responsibility to comply with import procedures, but it's a good idea to check they're doing so.
