"The on-line process for the Certificate of Origin thus far has been very seamless. There are no issues with the system as it is straight forward. The C.O's are approved in a timely manner sometimes less than five (5) minutes after it has been submitted."

"I am pleased thus far with the e-service. The processing time is tremendously reduced as I receive approval of my Certificates of Origin within five (5) minutes of sending them through this service. I find this system to be working efficiently and it is very convenient as it eliminates the hustle of having to go into the office in person and waiting for approval."
Mahase Frank, Hyline Label Co. Ltd
"I cannot express how much of a difference this [Animal Import Permit] has made when it comes to us being able to take delivery of our products as all import permits are received in advance of the arrival of shipment. Further... I can collect import permits within the same day.
Also, I have made application to the Plant Quarantine Services Division and was able to obtain the permit within the same day as well. This compared to 1-2 weeks before is amazing."
Nadira Dass, Hadco Limited
"I look forward to working with you in the future again and I will indeed recommend this service to someone else, for it has cut the lead time significantly by 90%.
I am truly satisfied. Well Done!"
MainLine Seafood Limited
" At first I was a bit apprehensive about using the online system. However, it was much easier than I thought and I found the level of customer service I received from the support staff to be exceptional. Great Job TTBizLink team!"
