Ghana – Advance Shipment Information (ASHI)
ANT-SHIPPING informs about new ASHI Document required for shipments to Ghana.
We would like to inform you that as of March 1, 2015 the Ghana Shippers’ Authority will require an Advance Shipment Information (ASHI) document, validated at the port of load, covering each bill of lading for maritime shipments arriving at seaports of Ghana.
Accordingly, the ASHI will be mandatory for all imports into Ghana effective as from March 1, 2015 based on Bill of Lading date.
Any shipment not accompanied by a validated ASHI document cannot be cleared through Customs and the appropriate penalties as enshrined in the law shall apply.
