The main economic development is mainly manufacturing, agriculture, and tourism. Thailand is the only net food exporter in Asia and one of the world’s top five agricultural exporters. So how long does the shipping from China to Thailand take? Let’s follow Basenton to understand.
The main ports in Thailand are Bangkok, Laem Chabang, lat Prabang, etc. Taking Bangkok Port as an example, the shipping time from China to Thailand is generally 4-8 days.
Customs clearance process for shipping from China to Thailand:
1. Submit the import declaration form or submit it through EDI

According to the announcement of the custom issued by Thailand, the following documents are required for import:
1) Sea or air waybill;
2) 3 copies of the invoice;

After the customs declaration form and accompanying, documents are submitted to the customs at the Thai port of entry, the Thai customs will review whether the declaration form is filled in compliance with the specifications, whether the accompanying documents are complete, what tax rate is applicable, and conduct a valuation.

Thailand has four ways to pay import duties and import taxes:
1) The importer pays taxes on-site at the customs finance department at the Thai port of entry. After receiving the payment, the Thai Customs will issue a receipt (this receipt needs to be presented during the inspection or release of the goods).

3) Pay electronically through the “Teller Payment System” of Thai Capital Bank.

The importer submits the approved customs declaration form and tax payment receipt in the warehouse where the goods are stored, and the Thai customs inspectors check the goods according to the information in the customs declaration form.
