DELIVERY OF EXHIBITS/BONDED EXHIBITION AREA
The Bahrain International Exhibition Centre is a customs bonded area. To comply with the bonded area regulations, all deliveries from locally held stock, i.e. duty/tax paid goods must be accompanied by a detailed loading list on company letterhead in triplicate. Goods will then be checked against the list by Customs Officers at the Exhibition Centre. One copy will be stamped and handed back to the exhibitor. The stamped copy must be presented to Customs at the end of the exhibition to enable goods to be removed from the bonded area.
CENSORSHIP OF LITERATURE/VIDEO
Show Catalogues, leaflets, literature, films and other visual aids are subject to inspection and censorship by Customs upon arrival. It is advisable to send questionable items to the shipping agents in advance for consideration.
Standard procedures must be adhered to and exhibitors are warned that any attempt to short cut the systems can result in extensive delays. The importation of all wireless, radio or telecommunications equipment will need special permission from the local authorities. In any case exhibitors are advised to contact their shipping agent well in advance.
