What is the Document of Operation for Customs Clearance (DODA)?
As part of the customs clearance process, and with the purpose of integrating one or several customs declarations into a single document, the Second Resolution of Modifications to the General Rules for Foreign Trade of 2016, determined that it may be carried out through the format called Document of Operation for Customs Clearance (Documento de Operación para Despacho Aduanero or DODA-QR). This document is generated with the information from the paid customs declarations or the consolidated notice, as applicable, and is used to activate the Automated Selection Mechanism (MSA). All 49 customs offices in the country are authorized to file the DODA, so its presentation is mandatory.
