How will the Automated Import System (AIS) impact your business?

Express carriers

You must use AIS to submit the following electronic customs import declarations:

  • Electronic Transport Document (ETD/D3)
  • customs import or simplified import declarations for every consignment
  • Presentation Notification (PN/G3)
  • Temporary Storage Declaration (TSD/G4)
  • supplementary declaration where required.


If you lodge or plan to lodge export declarations you must use the AEP system and continue to use the current AEP system software.
