Commercial Goods

If you are carrying commercial goods, goods for resale, or goods for use in your business, they will be subject to duty (where applicable) and VAT. These goods should be declared to Customs by proceeding through the Red Channel.

The goods cannot be cleared at the Arrival Hall, they are sent to PATS Autonomous Section (under customs seal) where arrangements (Bill of Entry) are made for a Customs broker/ freight forwarder to clear the goods.

This is done to eliminate bottlenecks at the arrival hall so as to expedite clearance of tourists and non-commercial travellers.
