Dear Valued Customer,
The Hambantota International Port (HIP) has completed the implementation of the electronic vehicle clearance process for Custom House Agents (CHAs), thereby enabling them to lodge import vehicle clearance documentation and in turn receive an electronic Import Cargo Delivery Pass (e-ICDP) from HIP.
This e-Delivery process is effective from Thursday, 18th June 2020, CHAs will be able to submit documents and receive e-ICDP electronically through registered email IDs.
1. Please note emails from CHAs will only be accepted by HIP from 8.30 am – 9.00 pm on weekdays and 9.00am – 3.00pm on Saturdays. Emails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org will return to the sender outside of these times.
2. Clearly mention “Charge Advice No” in your payment advice.
3. Please refrain from using an ENVELOPE when depositing cash in the ATM machines. Use only ATM machines that accept direct cash.

5. Please ensure documents are clear when emailing to HIP.
6. This system has been implemented to ensure your security and convenience, therefore please make use of the process and avoid any personal visits to the Doc Center.
