Documentation Required

Information regarding Customs can be found in "Customs Requirements" of the Canada Postal Guide.

The following forms are normally required:

1. Customs Declaration Form

2. Packing List

In addition, an import permit is required for many goods mailed to the Cayman Islands. Before posting any item, senders should confirm that the addressee has any necessary permit. All delivery addresses must include a post office box number.

Custom Procedures:

It is the importerís responsibility in law to enter all goods (whether dutiable or not) with the Customs Service within seven days of their arrival in the Cayman Islands, by completing the appropriate entry form and lodging it with Customs.

Postal importations are normally cleared against the senderís declaration accompanying the package and do not require formal entry procedures. In some cases, however, (e.g when the goods are of high value or might be eligible for a duty relief, or where further information is required) the Customs Officer at the Postal Depot may call for the completion of the appropriate entry form.
