Important Anguilla Customs Information
General Customs Information
Most countries allow a certain amount of personal effects to cross their borders, duty free. This means that most Send My Bag shipments pass through customs without being stopped by officials. Personal effects are considered by most customs officials to be items that have been in the sender’s possession for at least 6 months.
If your bag is checked by Anguillan customs and brand new or commercial items are found, you may be required to pay customs duties and taxes. This is something to keep in mind if you are sending Christmas or birthday presents to Anguilla. Please make sure you know beforehand about any taxes or duties you need to pay before you send your items. Also make sure that you attach all documentation required of you.
You need to indicate to customs officials that your shipment is made up of personal effects. To do so, you are required to complete a short packing list online, as follows: "10 x Pairs of Socks, 2 x Leather Sandals, 3 x Linen Shirt’, and so on, rather than as "10 x Used Clothing".
We suggest that all travellers assess how their personal circumstances and what they are sending will be viewed in accordance with Anguillan customs regulations.
