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.
