Japan Customs Warning that Advance Filing Rules will Become Stricter 2018-04-25

Japan Customs has warned that Advance Filing Rules (AFR) on Container Cargo, implemented in March 2014, will become stricter from now onward in view of the 2019 Rugby World Cup and the 2020 Olympic Games scheduled in Tokyo due to consequent higher risks of terrorism attacks in Japan.
In particular, the application of a penalty by Japanese customs law in case the cargo is not filed within deadline (24hrs before the departure of the vessel from port of loading) will be enforced.
For more details, please visit the Japan Customs website.
