How to Do Preparations for Customs Clearance in China for Frozen Durian?

First of all, it is very important to know that only Thailand and Malaysia can export frozen durian to China. On May 30, 2019, GACC published the Announcement on the Allowance of Import of Malaysian Frozen Durian. Before that Malaysia could just import frozen durian flesh to China. And Thailand is the one and only country in the world that can export fresh durian to China. 

Well, herein today let us focus on frozen durian and talk about some basic knowledge related to importation of this type of product. The HS code for frozen Durian is 0811909090 whose import duty 30% and value added tax 9%. Since both Thailand and Malaysia are ASEAN countries, frozen durian from the two countries can enjoy duty free treatment with Asean-China Free Trade Area Preferential Tariff Certificate of Origin(Form E)
