What information is needed for customs clearance in Argentina?

    Customs clearance has always been the most concerned topic for foreign trade customers. Unsuccessful customs clearance will not only lead to delays in delivery, but also lead to the abandonment of goods and heavy losses. Recently, I have friends who have exported to Argentina. I am particularly concerned about the customs clearance of this country. I want to know what information is needed for customs clearance in Argentina.

Argentina is a South American country, customs clearance is more stringent, in addition to the bill of lading (only the original bill of lading), invoices, boxes, certificate of origin \CO to do the embassy's signing, you also need to provide CUIT NO. (tax registration number) .
