An ECTN accompanies a shipment heading towards the Republic of Congo. The goods, fully described by the ECTN, can be cleared in Congo once the ECTN has been validated with a VISA which generates a Unique Registration Number, or URN. The agent may only grant a VISA to a shipment if the ECTN is within policy.
