In today's globalized world, businesses and startups often seek opportunities beyond their domestic borders.

Understanding the IEC Certificate Process

The Import Export Code (IEC) is a 10-digit unique identification number issued by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT), a part of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India. This code is mandatory for any business or startup engaged in import or export activities in India.

 

Step 1: Eligibility Criteria

Before diving into the application process, it's crucial to ensure that you meet the eligibility criteria for obtaining an IEC certificate. Fortunately, this process is relatively straightforward, and almost all businesses and startups can apply for it.

 

Step 2: Document Preparation

Once eligibility is confirmed, the next step involves preparing the necessary documents. The list of documents typically includes:

  1. PAN Card: A copy of the Permanent Account Number (PAN) card of the applicant.
  2. Address Proof: Proof of the registered office address, such as a rental agreement or electricity bill.
  3. Bank Certificate: A bank certificate or a cancelled check from the applicant's current account.
  4. Digital Photograph: A recent passport-sized photograph of the applicant.
  5. Aadhar Card: A copy of the Aadhar card of the applicant.

 

Step 3: Online Application

With all the required documents in place, you can now proceed with the online application. The DGFT has introduced a user-friendly online portal for this purpose. The applicant needs to fill in the details, attach the documents, and pay the necessary fees.

 

Step 4: Verification and Issuance

Once the application is submitted, the DGFT will review it. Typically, the IEC certificate is issued within 1-2 working days if all the documents and information are in order. Subsequently, the applicant receives the IEC certificate through email.
