Importers’ entries of goods

Updated: Aug 20, 2021

When a ship arrives in port, details of the goods on board must be entered on a special form by the importers involved, who then pay the appropriate duty. The form is sent to the Customs and Excise office and compared to the master’s report, after which the goods may have to be examined. If the form is cleared it serves as a warrant allowing the goods out of Customs charge or to a bonded warehouse for duty-free storage.
