F.A.O. Shippers, exporters, forwarders, shipping lines, agents and all parties involved in the trade with Libya.

We would like to inform you that further to the contract Antaser International Group has signed with the Ministry of Finance and the Libyan Customs Administration to assign the issuance and management of the ECTN for Libya to Antaser International Group, the ECTN for Libya will become mandatory as from October 1st 2015 (date of Bill of Lading).

For all shipments to and from Libya (all cargo in transit included), the shipper or his forwarder are required to issue an ECTN. Each Bill of Lading must be covered by an ECTN and its unique number needs to be inserted in the Bill of Lading and Cargo Manifest.

Libya is now in addition to Togo, Senegal, Mali, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Niger, Chad, Burundi and Central African Republic for which Dolphin Movers is already appointed to provide ECTN.

Cargoes not covered by a valid ECTN will not be cleared through the local customs until presentation of the final ECTN and appropriate fines will be charged.

When applying for an ECTN for Libya we require the following documents for completion of the ECTN;

  • Bill of Lading
  • NES Export Customs Document
  • Goods Invoice

All above documents will be attached in the form of a PDF to each and every ECTN.

In order to complete the ECTN successfully, we require the following information if not stated on the above documentation;

1. Freight charges
2. Incoterm
3. Origin of goods

We will then advise you of the charges, once payment is received in the form of cleared funds, we will complete the ECTN on the Global System and forward a copy for your approval. No originals will be couriered or posted, all destination authorities and customs will have access to all ECTN's issued and will carry out online controls for all consignments and vessels entering the relevant ports.

The validated ECTN number will be generated, any amendments after validation will incur additional charges.

All applications and queries must be forwarded to
