Settle Customs Fees and Taxes Quickly and Easily Via Bahrain.bh!

Customs clearance is a crucial function that streamlines the import of goods into the Kingdom. This process is now even faster and more convenient as customs fees and taxes can be paid online via the National Portal, bahrain.bh, eliminating the need for time-consuming visits to service centers.

Launched by the Ministry of Interior’s Customs Affairs, in collaboration with the Information & eGovernment Authority (iGA), the new service aims to improve the efficiency of online transactions, helping to maintain social distancing practices throughout the coronavirus pandemic while enhancing government performance.

Payments can be made via credit or debit cards by visiting bahrain.bh and selecting ‘Pay Customs Fees and Taxes’. Users should then enter their Customs Declaration Numbers and Importer Identity Numbers. To view importer identity types, users can select ‘Help’ or ‘Continue’, which will display details of the customs declaration including the Declaration Number, Importer Identity Number, total fees in Bahraini Dinars, and other details of due fees and taxes.

Applicants should enter personal contact details such as phone numbers or emails and make their payments to complete their transactions. Once done, payment details will be automatically displayed, showing the payment receipt, the customs declaration, fees, and the applicant’s details. Beneficiaries must keep a copy of the receipt either by printing it or having it emailed to them.

For more information, please visit the National Portal bahrain.bh
