Credit lines for exports of goods and services

Export Support

Financing for the export of goods and services in three different categories:

  • Pre-shipment: finances the production of internationally competitive companies established under Brazilian law;
  • Post-shipment: finances the trade of goods and services abroad by refinancing the exporter, or through the buyer's credit category, in accordance with international standards;
  • BNDES Exim Automatic: provides support to trade Brazilian goods abroad, at the post-shipment phase, through a network of accredited banks. 

The acceptable guarantee instruments are the same as those offered by export credit agencies (ECAs) to facilitate access to export credit.

For instance, a transaction may include Export Credit Insurance as a guarantee, covering commercial, political and extraordinary risks involved. In Brazil, this instrument is operated by private insurance companies in the short term and by the federal government in the long term.

Also, requests may be made to foreign banks that provide international guarantees for financing operations.
