The ACID (advance cargo information declaration) number is generated by the Egyptian customs platform - NAFEZA, once the Egyptian importer registers the import shipment. It is a 19-digit number.
In this process, the Egyptian importer logs into their Nafeza account and provides details about cargo and supplier (foreign exporter). As a result, an ACI notification that contains the ACID number along with other export information is sent to the exporter.
Foreign exporters using the CargoX Platform will be able to do ACI filing only with the valid ACID number, as this allows customs to match the right documents to the right incoming shipment.
