The import permit for books and magazines
 For shipment with more than 100 books/magazines, import permit from The administrative department of press and publication under the state council is a must.  For small shipment containing less than 100 books/magazines, import permit does not required. And we are able to provide import permit for companies that plan to import books and magazines with relatively large quantity into China . But we request clear photo of the magazine front cover, magazine back cover, and two or three inside pages. Please also indicate the name of publish house and author for reviewing and checking if the book contents are legal and not against relevant laws and regulations.
