Cameroon joined WTO (World Trade Organization) in 1995. Cameroon is a founding Member of the WTO and grants at least MFN treatment to all its partners in international trade. Imports are subject to a value-added tax - 18.7%, and some to a 25% excise tax (alcoholic drinks, cosmetics, cigarettes, and jewellery). A temporary import surcharge of about 30% was levied on a small number of goods. The relatively few import restrictions currently in place are aimed at ensuring security, and protecting public health and the environment. Customs procedures have been streamlined through the opening of a single-window facility.

Free Trade Zones (Warehouses)

Cameroon's Industrial Free Zone (IFZ) regime is production and export directed. Only 20 % of products manufactured by firms based in the zones can be sold on the Cameroonian market. The authorities discontinued granting authorizations to investors looking for the free zone regime, pending completion of an examination of past operations. Faced with possible law suits by enterprises previously granted free zone status, the government of Cameroon released the suspension for those units in late 1999. The actual status of the Industrial Free Zone is unclear. There are no free trade warehouses in the country.

2) You don’t have to have to wait for your order being consolidated with other orders shipped to the same destination;
3) Mind that your goods will stay in the container from the time of loading in the origin port to the time of unloading at the destination.
