To start the quotation process, due to current legislation and in accordance with the control rules and regularities established by internationally validated suppliers , it is required the submission of a prescription, which can be replaced by a medical certificate, provided that the posology and unequivocal dosage of the medicament are listed, with the proof of address of the patient, so by standards the medicament will be delivered just to the patient; thus for a correct freight quotation, it must be presented the proof of address.
With the documentation presented by the patient, we will accomplish the quotation about the medicament with the suppliers on the main markets worldwide, the freight with logistics operator (with expertise in the transport of medicines) and will position their team to actions about the custom clearance.
The deadline for the submissions of quotation to patient varies from 2 or 3 days after the send of the documentation.

It is important to note that, like any import, the process is subject to parameterization, supervision and control inspections, according to current legislation. Such interference are not under importers control.
In accordance with the legislation in force, specifically RDC ANVISA Nº 81/08 and Decree 8077/2013, it´s not allowed the import of control medicaments under the terms of ANVISA Nº 344/98. Such restriction prevents, for example, the import of medicaments which cause chemical dependency, known as “Controlled Medicine”.
It´s prohibited, by the same legislation, the storage of imported medicaments not marketed in Brazil (not registered by ANVISA), thus the import should be done strictly in the quantity for use and individual consumption of the patient, which can´t be resold or marketed. Enterprises which keep these products for prompt delivery, storing in an irregular manner, are at odds with the current legislation.
It is not permissible the fractioning of import,that is the purchase in smaller quantity than provided by the manufacturer of medicaments.
For example: The medical prescription describes the use of an ampoule to a certain medicine, however the manufacturer only offer box with at least 10 ampoules. For us it´s impossible to purchase and import just one ampoule, we need to purchase a minimum amount provided by the manufacturer, that is: A box containing 10 ampoules, shipping the full box to the patient, in its original package.
We do not work with outlawed products in Brazil (Medicine prohibited in our country).
For ethical subjects and commercial relations preservation, we do not provide values without the medical prescription presentation or medical certificate, in accordance with the matters established, together with the patient´s proof address.
