AGOA AND ITS BENEFITS TO NIGERIANS EXPORTING FROM NIGERIA TO THE USA

African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) is a United States trade act. The legislation was enacted on 18 May 2000. It significantly enhances unhindered market access to the USA for Nigeria. Its purpose is to assist sub-Saharan economies (and Nigeria) improve economic relations with the USA. It provides trade preferences for quota and duty-free entry into the USA for certain goods.

Basically, it provides duty and quota-free market preferences for countries in the Sub Sahara including Nigeria. This means you can export certain products from Nigeria to the US without paying for duty.

Do you know that African Apparel and footwear made with Ankara and other African fabrics are covered under AGOA? Yes, they are. And guess what? AGOA is currently in the act until 2025. Now is the time to take ample opportunity of this act, in the next 4 years, it may not exist

BENEFITS YOU STAND TO GAIN EXPORTING FOOD ITEMS FROM NIGERIA TO THE USA

AGOA provides Nigerian exporters with numerous attractive advantages in doing international business:

  • Duty-free access for eligible products to the USA: You are not paying a kobo as duty for air freight to the U.S, interesting, isn’t it?
  • Significant competitive tariff advantages over non-AGOA countries: Other non-sub Saharan nations are still paying tariffs and duty. Your products definitely would be cheaper than theirs and you have an advantage over them.
  • Encouragement of regional integration and production sharing among beneficiary countries.
  • ​Security of the act ensured until 2025: Until 2025, you can be sure to enjoy this great opportunity

CHALLENGES FACED WITH AGOA

  • Packaging and labelling: If you can ensure proper packaging, then you are good to go
  • The unwillingness of our people to take risks associated with export business: You aren’t going to snooze on this, are you?
  • Lack of basic information about doing business in the US market: Lack of basic information on export has hindered a lot of people from thriving in the export industry.
  • ​Inadequate training on the export process.
  • ​Weak infrastructure – energy, transportation, water, information technology (IT), etc

DOCUMENTS REQUIRED TO BENEFIT FROM AGOA

For formal exports the following documents will be required at different stages of the export process:

  • EXPORTER REGISTRATION DOCUMENTS: The first step of your export procedure is registration as an exporter with NEPC. In order to venture into the export business, this is required. In summary:

        (A) Document issued – exporter’s certificate

        (B) Issued by – NEPC

        (C) Relevance – it licenses you as an exporter and makes you eligible for NEPC-benefits

  • EXPORT CONTRACT DOCUMENT: An export contract is an agreement between seller and buyer on the terms of export business:

        (A) Document issued – a signed export contract

        (B) Issued by – you as an exporter and the importer

        (C) Relevance – it spells out the obligations of buyer and seller

  • QUALITY ASSURANCE DOCUMENT: Using internationally renowned organizations is crucial. Quality assurance documents aid in confirming that the safety precautions for your exported goods are met (as stipulated by international conventions and possibly specified terms of the contract). The type of food items you are exporting from Nigeria to the US will determine which documentation is needed.

NOTE: Do you know you don’t have to stress yourself acquiring all these documents?  Shiptonaija has all necessary compliance and documentation to ensure you enjoy this duty-free cargo shipping to the US.

DON'T JUST BELIEVE US, HEAR WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY ABOUT US

A Message From Our CEO/Founder

Delays, poor customer service, no information on the status of my shipment, and even sadder is the loss of $25,000 on a car shipping from the USA to Nigeria. That was my first experience when l used a company to ship a car to Nigeria. I later found out this was the norm and set up ShipToNaija with the mission of changing this. We hope that we have been able to improve the service and do hope that you will give us a try with your shipping.

Please watch this video to see our vision for shipping.
