Kenya Government Bans Importation of Used Clothing and Shoes
As a precaution, the Kenyan government has with immediate effect banned the importation of Used Clothes and Shoes. Please see the notice below.
Only cargo allowed for clearance is that having a shipped date of 12th March 2020. Anything shipped after that will be seized and probably destroyed.
We ask that you consider below options for now
- Have the cargo retained on board and returned to origin
- Sell the cargo to another consignee and request a COD (this ban is only for Kenya and other hinterland countries like Uganda have not banned the cargo yet)
Kindly review and let us know what you would like us to do in order to avoid the inconveniences of the ban.
