ICEGATE Registration - Now Simplified with Auto-Registration

ICEGATE is an abbreviation for Indian Customs Electronic Commerce/Electronic Data Interchange (EC/EDI) Gateway. ICEGATE provides e-filing services to the importers, exporters and other trading partners in India. It is responsible to fulfil the custom department’s Electronic Commerce/Electronic Data Interchange (EC/EDI) and data communication needs.

What are the facilities one can avail with ICEGATE’s Registration?
Primarily, ICEGATE is required for online filing of Bill of Entry, Shipping bills and other documents. Besides these, some of the other services hosted by ICEGATE are,
  • E-payment,
  • Document tracking status at Customs EDI,
  • Online registration for IPR,
  • IE code status verification,
  • online verification of DEPB/EPCG/DES licenses,
  • PAN-based data search
Simplified Auto Registration
Until now, ICEGATE’s registration process would require the digital signature of the IEC holder among other documents, which would further need approval from the officials. However, in an attempt to simplify the process and attract importers and exporters to register on the portal, CBIC has eliminated the need of digital Signature, PAN verification and approval procedure for the registration process. Thus, as per the new advisory for simplified registration, IEC holders can register on ICEGATE with his/her IEC and at least one GSTIN attached to the application followed by OTP verification via E-mail and mobile number.

How to Register on ICEGATE?
To register on the portal, follow the below-given steps
  • Visit Simplified ICEGATE Registration
