Argentina Adds Further Requirements for Importers, Cronista Says

Argentina’s Interior Commerce Secretary Guillermo Moreno increased requirements for the import of goods into the South American country, newspaper El Cronista reported.

To obtain approval for imports, companies must now send a form detailing their planned transactions by e-mail to Moreno’s office, the Buenos Aires-based newspaper said, without explaining where it obtained the information.

The new request is in addition to a sworn statement that companies will have to present to the national tax agency from Feb. 1 to gain permission to purchase merchandise for import.
