An import license was a document issued by a government agency that was required in order to allow one to import certain items into that government's jurisdiction.

In 2374, Quark had a number of cargo containers withheld from him by Deep Space 9 station security, ostensibly because he was missing the proper import license for them. As part of a bribe to keep Quark from pressing charges against Grathon Tolar, Captain Benjamin Sisko agreed to get them released. (DS9: "In the Pale Moonlight")
