PAYABLE DUTIES & TAXES FOR ITEMS SHIPPED TO JAMAICA
Some territories have a duty free allowance on imports, meaning that goods under a specific value are tax exempt. Jamaica is no exception: imports valued over 20 JMD require a duty and goods over 20 JMD are taxable. Some items are also subject to a proportional duty or additional tariff, including alcohol and tobacco.
Import customs are payable upon delivery of the package to Jamaica, not when they are sent from your virtual mailing address or your virtual mailing addresses. As a result, duties & tax are not included in the cost of your ShipByMail shipment.
We guarantee the safety of your forward packages to ShipByMail. If your purchased goods arrive to ShipByMail virtual mail addresses in Canada in substandard condition, we will notify you and pause the shipment: this way, you won’t pay duties on products that have to be returned/exchanged with the original provider.
