Applying Import & Export Code in India

IE Code stands for Import Export Code. It is a license required by a person who wishes to start an import-export Business in India.

This certificate is issued by the Director General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) and is a 10-digit code that comes with a lifetime validity.

Any individual, partnership firm, Limited Liability Partnership (LLP), company, or any other entity engaged in import/export activities can apply for IE Code. There is no requirement for minimum turnover to apply for an IE Code. Even individuals who are involved in import/export for personal use or business use (not for commercial use) can apply for an IE Code.

In order to procure your IEC, you must go through the following steps carefully to register. They are :
