Subject: Launch of facility to check status of Importer Exporter Code (IEC) application made to DGFT

Importer Exporter Code (IEC) is applied/ modified through online portal for IEC application. It has come to notice of DGFT that in some cases even after issuance of IEC by DGFT, the IEC data though transmitted by DGFT to ICEGATE (Customs) is not accepted by ICEGATE (Customs) due to some transmission errors. As a result, the IEC holder is unable to export/ import using this IEC.

Therefore, for early detection of such cases and timely resolution of such cases, a facility has been created to check the current status of IEC application and status of IEC transmission to ICEGATE. The status query is based on PAN used in IEC application made to DGFT. The facility to check status of Import Export Code(IEC) application can be accessed from DGFT website using Online Application → IEC → Know your IEC Status or directly from http://164.100.128.145:8100/IecStatusReport/ link.

PAN Number and first three letters of Firm Name can be entered to check the status. Based on the status displayed, action to be taken as mentioned below

S No Status Action to be taken
1 Application has been received in the DGFT Wait for 4 days for processing by RA
2 IEC application rejected Please re-submit the application after complying with the deficiencies raised by the RA. There will be no need to pay the fee again.
3 IEC transmitted to ICEGATE, yet to be accepted by ICEGATE Wait for 3 days for IEC to be successfully accepted by ICEGATE
4 IEC successfully registered at DGFT and accepted by ICEGATE IEC ready for use

If status at Si no 4 is not indicated, the applicant is requested to check the status of IEC at ICEGATE 3 days after the transmission to ICEGATEat the following link https://www.icegate.gov.in/EnqMod/ and report the problem to Contact@DGFT, if required.

    Thanks for the info Sir.

    Our Courier partner(DHL) is unable to see our GST number while uploading for bill of entry.
    They are requesting us to approach DGFT for linking Our GST to IEC.
    Please let us know any process for it.

    Thank you in advance.
