Maldives Customs Services has solved the network server issues and resumed online services to the customers.
Customs had been carrying out goods clearance services through manual declaration forms since the online service was disrupted last Sunday.
The service disruption also caused the Maldives Customs Service to halt their administrative works in addition to the services they provided.
A Customs Service media official said that the network server issues were resolved the previous night and the online services are now available to the public.
“We are back online. There won’t be any disruptions or inconveniences now,” the media official said.
The Customs online portal facilitates online payments of import duty and other such payments, access to ASYCUDA, statistics, tariff search, check status of import and export declarations and an online portal for importers, exporters and shipping agents.
ASYCUDA is a computerized customs management system which covers most foreign trade procedures. The system handles manifests and customs declarations, accounting procedures, transit and suspense procedures.
ASYCUDA generates trade data that can be used for statistical economic analysis and allows customization to national characteristics of individual customs regimes, national tariffs and laws, among other features.
