Importer of Record and IT Shipping

Importer of Record

Qatar is one of the less complex destinations to ship IT hardware into in the region, and for that reason, it’s a popular location for clients who want to expand their business. However, while it is a popular destination for import, most of our clients will need to utilize our Importer of Record services.

ICT

In order to import most kinds of IT hardware into Qatar, you will need approval from ICT – The Ministry of Communication and Information Technology. ICT approval typically requires data sheets, proper product valuations, Certificates of Origin, commercial invoices, and Technical Specification Documents.

IT Shipping & Logistics

Wide-bodied air freight is easy to secure but may still take a couple of days to land in ACM. Once the equipment arrives in Qatar you should only need about a week for customs clearance and last-mile delivery.
