The Jamaica Customs Agency is advising all importers that, as of May 11, 2020, it will be mandatory to use the express clearance process (ECP) for the processing and clearance of all personal shipments below US$5,000 [to include cost, insurance & freight (CIF)].


Importers should authorize their clearing agents to prepare, submit, and pay for a simplified declaration (IMS4). The clearing agent can then complete the entire customs clearance formalities, including the delivery of the cargo/goods to the consignee upon request.
