Can I get an ENG1 in Antigua?
Dr. James Sutton has an office in the Courtyard and conducts the Seafarers Medical Examination and issues this certificate. It is endorsed by ADOMS Medical Standards which is in keeping with the new ILO/IMO guidelines for the medical examination of Seafarers in accordance with regulation 1/9 of the International Convention on Standards of training, certification and Watchkeeping (STCW).
How to send parts to Antigua?
All packages for yachts are duty free. Our broker charges a clearance fee per consignment not per package so it is best to consolidate all your packages and have them sent down in one consignment with one Airway Bill Number.
Customs in Antigua are extremely strict and monitor EVERYTHING that comes onto the island. If packages are labeled clearly ‘Documents with no commercial value’ they should not be detained in customs. If they are yacht spares, they will be detained. These packages will incur the brokerage fee but NO duties.
We can expedite the clearance of packages that are detained in customs and if the paperwork is completed, they can meet the plane and clear the shipment same day. Shipments sent by sea to the Sea port take 3 days to clear if all goes well.
Is there a provisions list?
We don’t have a list or overview of provisions, as things on island change from day to day. We have a team of provisioners who source from all over the island and pick out the choice items only. We don’t import in from overseas but our local suppliers will bring in if we give them enough lead time. Our suppliers supply the 5 star hotels on the island and have been working with JYS for the last 17 years so are pretty knowledgeable of what the yachts need and the quality.
If you do decide to get a shipment from overseas using your normal supplier then we can do the clearance and delivery at this end. If you want to send through a wish list, we will see what we can get and advise.

How do I clear into Antigua?
We look forward to welcoming you to Antigua. All yacht pre-clearances are submitted online using www.eseaclear.com, however this is being phased out and www.sailclear.com will be the official clearance site by December 2016.
Customs would prefer your pre clearance to be submitted 24 hours before arrival but if you can’t get that done, there are computers at customs to facilitate your clearance or JYS can clear your yacht in for you.
Please contact us before you leave your current port.
What day can I get my Gas refilled?
If your gas cylinders need filling, please have them in our office before 10am TUESDAY or THURSDAY and we will have them filled and back in our office around 4pm the same day.
Please note: JYS offer a service of “delivering” private gas cylinders to the other side of the island twice a week for refills.
JYS acts purely as a delivery to and from the filling station.
The refill station charges YOU for the size of the cylinder NOT the amount of gas put in. ie Top ups will be charged full price.
