REPUBLIC OF CONGO

Congolese Shippers Council issued a directive that as of 2009 all sea cargo arriving in the Republic of Congo must have a Cargo tracking Note (CTN) or Electronic Cargo Tracking Note (ECTN). Some shipping lines may not load cargo without the CTN number. Cargo arriving without a Cargo Tracking Note may be subject of fines and delays.

Cargo Tracking Notes will not be issued at discharge port.

Procedure:

  • Submit the required documents by email or online submission.
  • You will be sent a draft and an invoice, typically within the same day.
  • Once your payment has been received and you approve the draft, validation will be sent.

Timeline:

  • The CTN must be validated within 5 days of the vessel sailing.  After 5 days, there is a 150% penalty imposed on the CTN charges.  No regularization at destination port.
  • Since the CTN is validated by the authorities in the destination country, the process can take 3-5 days.
  • The Unique Registration Number (URN)must be placed on the Final Bill of Lading and the Manifest.

Below are the required documents for this certificate:

– Bill of Lading
– Commercial Invoice
– Freight Invoice (required if the freight amount is not specified on commercial invoice)
– GUOT document (must have TI-xxxxx code.)– Packing List
– Vehicle Title (if applicable)
