Effective April 1, 2019, The South Sudanese Custom Authority will require the Electronic Cargo Tracking Note (ECTN) on all sea cargo destined for South Sudan and all exports from that country. The ECTN must be obtained at the loading port and the ECTN number must be on each supporting bill of lading and the shipping line’s manifest.
This regulation also applies to in-transit cargoes moving through the ports of Sudan, Mombasa and all other ports where cargo destined for South Sudan is discharged.
Shipping Lines are required to insert the Unique ECTN number in the Bill of Lading and the cargo manifest. Failure to do so will be subject to penalties or fines of USD5000.00 per infraction.
No regularization at destination port.
- Submit the required documents by email or online submission.
- You will be sent a draft and an invoice, typically within the same day.

- The CTN must be validated before the vessel arrives at the destination. No regularization at destination port.
