Fig Tree News TeamPer Customs this morning ...

Duty has been lifted on these items: clothing, footwear, batteries, disposable paper and plastic goods, generators, chain saws, tools and medical supplies, and no approval is required for their importation.

These items below require an approval letter from our area commisioner that states whether or not your project is new or suffered damages from the hurricane: furniture, appliances, plumbing materials, electrical materials, building materials and emergency equipment.

Commissioner Flowers can be contacted at 242 333 2275 for more information.

chapelOn Friday, Bahamas Information Services held a press conference at which it was announced that the Bahamas Government was instituting a 6-month moratorium on import duties for rebuilding supplies and replacement materials lost to Hurricane Frances. As a more specific announcement becomes available, we will post it here.
