Niger presents an exciting frontier for technological development, but navigating its trade compliance regulations, especially for dual-use goods and tech gear, requires careful consideration.
Niger adheres to international non-proliferation treaties and implements stricter controls on dual-use goods with potential military or weapons applications. As a result most imports and exports require licenses issued by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry. Specific requirements vary based on the product category and its value.
Bureaucracy, lengthy customs clearance procedures, and informal fees can complicate trade processes.
Niger is a member of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), which facilitates free movement of goods within the region.
