Do I need an import license to buy goods from China?

Import licenses are a necessary instrument in buying goods from any country. This is to maintain control over the imported goods and import quotas. There are two types of buying licenses in China; automatic and non-automatic import licenses.

Automatic license is widely used and acceptable since it allows the import of numerous products from China. And non-automatic import licenses allow the import of the products that automatic licenses do not allow. In addition, the automatic import license records trade statistics, while the non-automatic license restricts the import quota.
