Delivery Verification

The exporting country may require a Delivery Verification (DV) after you have imported your goods.  Please check if your exporter requires a DV when applying for an Import Certificate (IC).

Applying for Delivery Verification

You should apply for a DV from Singapore Customs if it is required by your exporter. There are two types of DVs – partial delivery and complete delivery. For both types of DVs, please:

  • Submit your IC to Customs within 14 days after the goods have arrived in Singapore
  • Ensure the ICDV number is indicated on your import permit

This information is needed to verify the delivery of your goods into Singapore.

Verification for Partial Delivery

This refers to verifying the delivery of the goods under the IC when they are imported into Singapore over different shipments.
For verification of partial delivery, please submit:
  • 2 copies of the Statement of Delivery Verification for Partial Delivery (DOC/ PDF)
  • Copy of the import permit(s)
  • Bill of Lading or Air Waybill
  • Copy of the Declaration by Importer of Goods under an Import Certificate (DOC/ PDF)
  • Export Licence (and its English translation) from the originating country
  • Business transaction documents (for example, invoice, packing list, delivery order)

We will endorse the Statement of Delivery Verification and return a copy to you. When all the goods under the IC have been imported, you should apply for verification for the complete delivery.

Verification for Complete Delivery

This refers to the verification of the delivery when all the goods under the IC have been imported into Singapore.

For verification of complete delivery, please submit:

  • Importer's original IC
  • Copy of the import permit(s)
  • Bill of Lading or Air Waybill
  • Copy of the Declaration by Importer of Goods under an IC (DOC/ PDF)
  • Export Licence (and its English translation) from the originating country
  • Business transaction documents (for example, invoice, packing list, delivery order)

We will verify that the goods in its stated quantity have arrived in Singapore based on the documents provided.

After verification, you should send the ICDV to the exporter without delay.
