Exporting agri commodities from India to Dubai is a vigilant process. Once you have attained the order the next step is shipping, which requires a certain amount of paperwork.
All agri-commodities require a health care certificate and country origin certificate, for all plant products like dry pea, vegetables, and fruits, and so on, a special certificate called the Animal and Plant Health Inspection certificate would also be needed.
This certificate is issued by the health department of the Ministry of Environment and Water, the purpose of this certificate is to confirm the absence of any insect or pest and to meet all the laid down rules.
Furthermore, all the concerned certificates would need stamping and a notary seal from the UAE embassy in India. Any certification lacking the notary seal is sent back within 5 days along with the shipment.
Other documents required with the shipment are the Bill of lading, bill of entry, packing list, and original invoices for submission to the customs authority.
Other than the above-mentioned certificate followed are other documentation required to export from India to Dubai.
