DHL Paperless Clearance Documents
The primary customs documents that are appropriate for use with Paperless Clearance:
  • Commercial Invoice
  • Pro Forma Invoice
  • Certificate of Origin
Certain customs clearance documents require converting a Paperless Clearance shipment to non-paperless shipment. A non-paperless shipment requires all customs documents placed in a plastic pouch affixed to the shipment. Listed are additional customs clearance documents that require the conversion of a Paperless Clearance shipment to non-paperless shipment:
  • Carnet
  • Certificate of Inspection
  • Certificate of Insurance
  • Certificate of Manufacture
  • Consular Invoice
  • Controlled Exports (e.g. ITAR exemption, BIS export license and exceptions, etc.)
  • Import License
  • Phytosanitary Inspection Certificate
If you have any questions about customs documentation requirements, please contact DHL Customer Service and one of our International Specialists will be happy to assist you. 1 800 CALL DHL (1 800 225 5345)
