Jamaica Customs Says Persons in Lock-down Should Not Attempt to Clear Goods – Customers Encouraged to Use Express Cargo Clearance Procedure

The Jamaica Customs Agency (JCA) is advising that persons who are in ‘lock-down’,  as ordered by the  Government of Jamaica, should desist from attempting to effect clearance at any port, as this will not be facilitated by the JCA, during the period of ‘lock-down’.

The JCA is also reminding the public that only the consignee (person in whose name the goods have been imported), an Agent, or any other person authorised to undertake clearance, is allowed on the port or in warehouses to effect the clearance of shipments.
