I am a resident importing a dog/ cat. I got the animals from a shelter and they did not cost anything. Do I have to pay duty and how do I prove the cost?

You will have to pay duty on animals. The customs value is normally based on the transaction value. Where there is no sale the value of identical or similar animals sold for export to Bermuda will be used. Your valuation should be supported by evidence of the sale price of similar animals.
