REGISTRY OF IMPORTERS AND EXPORTERS OF GOODS AND SERVICES
Registry of Importers and Exporters
Since the reorganization of Cuban foreign trade, the number of organizations authorized to carry out export and import activities has increased significantly, which made it necessary to create a Registry of Exporters and Importers attached to the Chamber of Commerce of the Republic of Cuba.
The Registry of Importers and/or Exporters was created by Resolution no. 153 of 1994 of the Minister of Foreign Trade. All entities located in the country authorized to carry out export or import activities, or both, are obliged to register in the Registry.
NATIONAL REGISTRY OF FOREIGN COMMERCIAL REPRESENTATIONS
The successive transformations operated in foreign trade and the experience accumulated in the operation of the National Registry of Branches and Agents of Foreign Mercantile Companies and the National Registry of Travel Agencies, understood as registers of authorizations and licenses and with the objectives of eliminating the existing normative dispersion, recognizing other modalities that operate in the commercial traffic of goods and services, susceptible of registration, and contributing to the simplification of the required procedures, adapting the legal regulations to the current conditions; as well as to the terms and practices of international use, on February 22, 2021, Decree 32 “REGULATION FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF FOREIGN COMMERCIAL REPRESENTATIONS IN CUBA” was issued.
