Export to Burundi

In Burundi, people wishing to export must have an export license. The Department of Foreign Trade within the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Tourism is responsible for issuing this License.

The request is addressed to the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Tourism. The applicant must specify in his application, the products he wants to export.

The Ministry in charge analyzes the demand, especially if the products to be exported are sufficient at the local level. It is after this information relating to the offer at the local level that the decision is made. The local market must have these products in sufficient quantity for the Ministry to issue this License to the applicant.
