How do I clear my goods with Customs and what documents are required?

Customs currently has two processing regimes in place. One is our Customs Automated Processing System (CAPS) and the other is a non-CAPS system. You will need to complete a Bermuda Customs Declaration (BCD) for your goods. For more information and tariff codes please visit our website www.customs.gov.bm Public Notice 17 for instructions on how to complete a BCD and also the online tariff.

The documents required for CAPS are as follows:

- 1 completed BCD

- 1 Master Bill of Lading (sea freight) or Airway Bill (air freight)

- 1 House Bill of Lading if necessary

- Other supporting documents (invoices, packing slip, container load manifest, etc)

Documents for non-CAPS clearance are as follows:

- 2 copies of a completed BCD

- Master Bill of Lading/Airway Bill

- Delivery Order (marine shipments only) or the release copy of the airway bill

- Other supporting documents (invoices, packing slip, container load manifest, etc)
