Product & ServicesArt License Application

On July 17, 2009, Ministry of Culture and Customs General Bureau issued “Provisions on the Management of the Import and Export of Fine Art” to strengthen the administration of the import and export of art and the commercial exhibition of art works, to facilitate cultural exchanges between China and the world.

As per this provision, all art works which imported to china or exported from china to overseas countries,should obtain a Art License first.if the fine art importer or exporter can not provide such Art License,their art works will be in custody by china customs.

Below art works are requested to apply Art License (Art Permit) before exportation or importation:

ARTCULS is a legally registered import-export entity in China.We focus on fine art import and export for many years by our qualified export and import right.we are fully aware of this provisions and familiar with the Art License application procedure.

Every month there are always some clients called us and request for help due to art works detained in customs without providing Art License.This put the art works in a very awkward position.
