2.2. Prerequisites for Egypt ACI filing¶
To send the ACI envelope to NAFEZA, you first need to complete the CargoX company verification process. A detailed step-by-step instructions is available on company verification.
Please complete the following as soon as possible:
1) Log into your CargoX account and verify your company details.
Your company details can be found in My company | Company details. CargoX uses public registry information to verify company details. As such the entered details should completely match the data in your country's official national company registry. If needed, make changes by clicking the Edit company details button.
2) Purchase credits through the billing section and pay via bank wire.
Visit Billing to complete the credits purchase. Second part of the verification is tied to the identity provided by your bank. Payment must come from your company's bank account, as we use this information to match it against your company details. When the match is confirmed, the first part of your company verification is complete.
Please note that one-time per-ACID processing cost of each ACI filing is published on the official website https://www.nafeza.gov.eg/en/site/aci-faq.
Along with the ACI filing fee, the sender of the documents will need to cover the cost of blockchain document transfer via the CargoX Platform. The cost is $3 per document.
You can read more in the CargoX pricing policy. For example, if your ACI filing will include 4 documents (see the list of required ACI documents), the blockchain document transfer cost will be $12.
If the ACI filing processing fee will be $50, then the exporter's total cost per ACI filing is estimated at 62 USD.
Why no Credit cards? Bank wire payment is a part of the company verifications process (as mandated by Egyptian customs), as it allows us to compare bank wire payee information with the company details entered when registering a CargoX acconut. Details need to match to pass the bank verification.
3) Complete the verification process by successfully passing the public registry check.
In the My company | Get verified | Verify your data via 3rd-party service, start the company verification process by clicking the Verify now button below. Please note that the cost of this final verification is $15.
You can complete steps 1 & 2 immediately, and step 3 once we receive your bank payment.
Refer to our users' manual available at https://help.cargox.digital for more info.
Passing all 3 steps is mandatory, as the Egyptian customs require us to only allow ACI filing from verified exporters.
Once you complete the verification, you will be able to start the ACI filing by choosing the “Egypt ACI envelope” and entering your ACID number (as provided to you by your importer).
NAFEZA is gradually expanding the list of companies that are allowed to submit the ACI filing over the CargoX Platform. New companies are added in batches. If you completed all 3 steps of the CargoX company verification process, you will receive an email once you can begin the ACI filing process.
In case you have any questions regarding the ACI process, requirements of the Egyptian customs or NAFEZA system-specific, contact ACI.CAMPAIGN@MTS-EGY.com. Follow the official Nafeza webpage for more info.
If you have questions regarding the use of the CargoX Platform (and digital filing of the ACI documents - once you have received the ACID number from the importer) or need support during the registration on the CargoX, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or use the chat function within the platform.
