Instant Customs Clearance in all Mainland for Wine Entering through Hong Kong

Wine re-exported from Hong Kong enjoys instant customs clearance in all customs districts of the Mainland starting from November 9, 2017.
Under the relevant facilitation measures, pre-registered Hong Kong wine traders may submit advance wine consignment information online and enjoy instant customs clearance upon their consignments' arrival at Mainland ports. The measures are exclusive for wine entering the Mainland through Hong Kong and provided that the data and materials on such wine have been declared and filed by Hong Kong registered wine exporters and also examined and filed for record with the Hong Kong Customs and Excise Department. The measures were until now applicable only to five customs districts in the Mainland (Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, Guangzhou and Shenzhen) and are extended to all 42 customs districts in the Mainland from the November the 9th onward.

According to the Announcement, the Mainland importers should fill in the column "Notes" on the import declaration form with the “record-filing number of facilitation measures”. “The Mainland has all along been the largest market for wine re-exported from Hong Kong. With the extension of the customs facilitation measures, the wine community will benefit from more speedy customs clearance and greater certainty in the Mainland when re-exporting through Hong Kong. The extension will support international wine traders in tapping the Mainland market by making use of Hong Kong's top-notch business and logistics infrastructure, and further strengthen Hong Kong's unique position as Asia's wine hub", a spokesman for the Commerce and Economic Development Bureau said.
