Our department goals include:

  1. Safeguarding the welfare of the citizens of Montserrat by preventing the import and export of contraband goods.
  2. Maximising the collection of Customs and Excise revenues in accordance with the relevant laws of Montserrat.
  3. Collating, analysing, and providing accurate and timely management and statistical information on the operations of the Department.

What We Do

ASYCUDA is a computerised customs management system, which covers most foreign trade procedures. The system handles manifests and customs declarations, accounting procedures, and transit and suspense procedures.

Processing of imported and exported goods: The Department inspects examines all goods entering and leaving the country and assesses and collects all duties or tax that are liable to be paid. This service is provided primarily at the Post Office, Seaport and Airport whilst much of the paperwork is handled at Customs & Excise Headquarters in Brades. The Department also searches for and seizes restricted and prohibited goods (e.g. firearms or drugs).

Processing of Incoming and Outgoing Travellers: Officers of the Customs and Excise Department/ Integrated Border Security Unit speak to persons arriving on Montserrat by air or sea, and inspects any items they are bringing with them in order to assess and collect any duties that are liable to be paid. As part of the examination process, the Department also searches for and seizes restricted and prohibited goods (e.g. firearms or drugs).
