Importing to Jamaica (Some regulations): Jamaica is a member of the Caribbean Community and uses the Common External Tariff. Also called CET, this is a trade group of English-speaking countries in the Caribbean. The CET tariff is based on the Harmonized Commodity description and coding system. If you need more information on trade agreements, visit the Government of Canada Web Site.

Import Duties and Documentation: Import duties in Jamaica are generally based on an ad valorem basis and range between 15 and 20 percent for all items except for a small number of commodities, which are duty exempt or require a higher rate of duty. On top of import duties under the CET, there is a 16.5% General Consumption Tax (GCT) which is payable on the combined value of CIF and import duty. The GCT is basically a value-added tax charged on all transactions for goods and services unless there is an exemption or it has been rated as zero. There are other fees as well, including the Customs Administration Fee which replaces the Customs User Fee. There is also a Standard Compliance Fee of 0.3%, plus an Environmental Levy at 0.5% and Stamp Duty.

Import Controls: Almost everything can be imported to Jamaica with no issues except for items requiring a specific import license, such as meats, some animals, vegetables, and fruits, pharmaceuticals, tires, radios, some vehicles, firearms, and ammunition. There are banned items, as well, and these include drugs, dog racing equipment and pornographic material, which can lead to jail time for the importer.   United State is the first exporter to Jamaica.
