SENEGAL

In 2008, the Senegalese Shipper’s Council established the requirement that all cargo imported into the country will require a Cargo Tracking Note (CTN). 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 before the vessel arrives at the destination. No regularization at destination port.
  • Since the CTN is validated by the authorities in the destination country, the process from submitting a request to final validation can take 3-5 days.

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)
– Customs Export Declaration (optional)
