Footwear Import from India

Dear Members,

I am planning to start web retail of leather footwear. The footwear will be manufactured in India and I will import it to UK. The shoes will be sold on the internet.

Can you please advise as to:

  1. Do I need an Import Licence ?
  2. How can I apply for an import licence and what is the criteria?
  3. How long does it take to get an import licence and how much does it cost?

I look forward to your answer.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Regards

SR
