Outward Remittances

This has been very tightly controlled, with payments restricted to imports under a government issued Import License, or approval by the Central Bank. This is being eased up as the Government sees the need to meet business and individual requirements. The authority to approve transactions is slowly being delegated to the banks, who need to ensure that there is a legitimate business reason and supporting documentation for outward remittances. This is in line with the recent foreign investment law.
  • Imports
  • Services/Fees
  • Profit
  • Trade Finance

Imports are done under an Import License, either through DC/LCs or by TT.


The government now allows payments for services and fees to be paid. This used to have to be approved by the Central Bank.  This has now been passed to Banks.  Provided we are satisfied that the transactions are legitimate we can authorize them.


The recently passed Foreign Investment Law allows foreign companies to repatriate profits after all taxes are paid. In addition capital can be repatriated in the event a company is closed.
