CBN Announces New Customs Dollar Exchange Rate, Importers To Pay More To Clear Goods

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has hiked the exchange rates for cargo clearance at the nation's ports and airports. 



According to information on the official trade portal of the Nigerian Customs Service(NCS), the CBN increased the Customs dollar rate to N1,480.619 on Sunday, 


How customs determine the exchange rate In a recent report, Abdullahi Maiwada, NCS Spokesperson, explained that the CBN determine the exchange rates of import duty collection and not market forces. 

He noted that importers transact their businesses in dollars, which required them to obtain “Form M” from the CBN. According to the NCS spokesperson, the service collects duty on imported items using the prevailing rate for its calculations, while exporters use the Nigerian Export Proceed (NXP) form to repatriate their earnings. 



The increase in the customs exchange rate reflects the naira's performance in the official market. 

FMDQ securities report that in the Nigerian Autonomous Foreign Exchange Market (NAFEM) which is also the official market, Nigerian currency ended the week on Friday, May 24 at N1,482,81/$1. 


Peter Obi reacted to the latest changes and expressed concerns that they could kill many businesses. He further advised the government on actions to help the naira recover against the US dollar.
