Importers and exporters of goods to Dubai will need to register with Dubai Customs and obtain a clearance code. As long as the business has a valid license to execute the service in Dubai, it can register for more than one service. To obtain a code, you must have a valid trading/commercial license.
Dubai Customs is one of the leading government departments in the region since it is responsible for ensuring smooth trading operations in businesses around the city. To ensure their products are not bannable, businesses must check their product list before registering with customs. Since UAE norms restrict the sale of banned items and can impose substantial fines, traders of banned items face high penalties. The “Dubai Trade Portal” can provide a custom code if an application is submitted. In order to obtain a code, the following documents must be submitted.

In collaboration with the UAE Customs Department, the Federal Tax Authority (FTA) collects VAT on goods imported from the UAE. Tax Registration Numbers (TRN) should be provided to the customs department by all businesses registered under VAT when clearing imported goods. Upon updating and finding the Tax Registration Number (TRN) valid in their system, the customs department will allow the businesses to clear imported goods without paying VAT at customs.
When a Tax Registration Number (TRN) and a Customs Registration Number (CRN) are linked, businesses can clear imported goods without paying VAT at customs and pay later when filing VAT Returns for that period. To link your Tax Registration Number (TRN) with Customs Registration Number (CRN) if you are registered for VAT but have not updated your TRN with the Customs department, you have the following options.
Option 1: Through the Import Declaration Form
Option 2: Update through Customer Department
If you choose this option, you can provide the TRN to the customs department office. Logging into the e-service portal, the customs officer will verify the TRN. After the officer verifies the TRN, the customs department can update your TRN on its system.
Linking TRNs to CRNs is one of the most important tasks for VAT-registered businesses, especially for those who import goods frequently. As a result, they are able to clear goods quickly and smoothly from the customs port and are able to manage their cash flow better as well.
