Under the Exigency Order hurricane relief supplies can be imported into The Bahamas duty free and VAT free, provided the conditions outlined in the Order are met. Importers will be required to complete a simple, one-page form in order to apply for the established tax breaks. Bahamas Customs has structured the process in three steps:
- Complete an Exigency Order Application Form
- Complete Relevant Customs Declaration Form
- Present Documents to Customs at Port of Entry for on-site clearance and approval
