Border Trade Promotion by Kunming Customs District in Yunnan Province
[Ma Jun]: Hello, just now we mentioned that the players for the exchange trade between border residents are the citizens of China or the citizens of the counterpart countries who hold the Border Resident Certificates. Please remember that any border resident shall not engage in the exchange trade between border residents by holding the certificates of another person, nor assign, lease or lend his/her own certificate to other people; and any legal person or other organizations is not allowed to engage in the exchange trade between border residents in any form. So, your company is not allowed to engage in the exchange trade between border residents. 06/05/2014 10:11:54
[Net friend: Mahua]: Can an individual person engage in border trade? 06/05/2014 7:33:10
[Ma Jun]: According to the actual conditions of border trade in China, and the international practice, the border trade in China is classified into the two modes currently, namely, the exchange trade between border residents and the petty frontier trade. If you meet the conditions for a border resident, you can engage in the exchange trade between border residents. 06/05/2014 10:12:17
[Net friend: Yunda]: I am a student and I plan to visit my relatives in Myanmar in the second half of this year. It is a rare chance for me, so I will surely bring back some jade or other specialties. So I want to ask a question to our guests here. Do I have to declare those articles to the Customs according to the formalities for the exchange trade between border residents? I plan to leave from Yingjiang. 06/05/2014 7:33:49
[Ma Jun]: You do not meet the conditions for the players engaging in the exchange trade between border residents, so you cannot conduct the exchange trade between border residents. However, if the jade and other specialties you purchase in Myanmar are just for self-use or as gifts to your relatives or friends, you can carry them and come back through the passenger inspection channel. You are obliged to declare what you carry with you truthfully to the Customs, and the Customs will conduct relevant supervision the same to the supervision over articles and luggage according to the law. 06/05/2014 10:12:41
[Net friend: Mushroom head]: It is great. My aunt has no job or income in her hometown Nansan, and she seems to have a Border Resident Certificate. So can she engage in the exchange trade between border residents? How can she apply for it? 06/05/2014 7:34:40
[Shi Yi]: Yes, she can. Any person who meets the conditions for players engaging in the exchange trade between border residents can carry out the exchange trade. She just needs to take her Border Resident Certificate and go to the local site for the exchange trade between border residents. 06/05/2014 10:13:15
[Net friend: Guanguanjujiu]: Hello, my friend asks me to import a batch of red timber through the exchange trade between border residents, but I hear the customs will not allow this. Is it correct? 06/05/2014 7:35:19
[Xu Minghai]: Red timber is classified into various categories. Most of them are listed in the Appendix II to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora for protection, and are commodities restricted from import and export by the State. According to the provisions of the Convention, the import and export of those categories of red timber requires the import and export license issued by the competent authorities. So if you cannot obtain the import and export license, you will not be allowed to import red timber. 06/05/2014 10:14:13
[Net friend: Mengding]: Hello, I’m a farmer from Hekou County. What formalities shall I go through if I import some articles from the site for exchange trade between border residents in Hekou County? 06/05/2014 7:35:43
