Corruption remains a major factor in clearing products through customs. After customs declaration and prior to clearance, importers must verify the value of goods imported. Following valuation, customs issues a bill for duties owed, which must be paid directly to the central bank (Banque Centrale de la République de Guinée, BCRG) or to a local commercial bank. With the bank receipt, merchandise can be cleared through customs. A variety of local shipping agents are available to assist with this process and with the warehousing of incoming goods.
