In its quest for modernisation via new technology, as of 12th March, 2012 the Customs & Excise Division of Trinidad and Tobago have fully launched its new automated system ASYCUDA World, this means all goods entering or leaving the country will be processed electronically.

As a result we now require all clients to provide to an itemized list with individual cost per item for customs in Trinidad & Tobago.  Abels Moving Services will then email this signed document to our partners prior to the arrival of the shipment.

You will also need to sign a Customs Declaration which will be provided electronically to you by our partners inTrinidad and Tobago, this must be returned to them and they will then clear with the list of values for Customs.
