Customs

The Ethiopian Revenues and Customs Authority is the main organ that is responsible for the Customs operation in Ethiopia.

But, since the second half of 2008, the Ministry of Revenue has been reorganized as the Ethiopian Revenues and Customs Authority by proclamation number 587/2008 or 587/2000 EC.
