Customs/Immigration form simplified

Travel & news discussion about the "spice island"

Customs/Immigration form simplified

Postby KarenS » Fri Feb 10, 2006 9:01 am

Stated in a report from Caribbean NetNews: "ST GEORGE’S, Grenada: Grenada now has a one-page customs/immigration clearance form, which was introduced on February 1, 2006 as part of efforts to improve yachting in Grenada.

Discussions in that regard took place over a period of two years. Its introduction is seen as a welcome tool to facilitate a more professional approach to the process of entry and departure of various vessels.

The creation of the form was a collaborative effort between the Grenada Board of Tourism (GBT), the Department of Customs & Excise, MAYAG, Grenada Ports Authority and Immigration.

According to officials it eradicates most of the tedious paperwork previously associated with the clearing process at Grenada’s ports of entry.

Along with the introduction of the one page form, the Customs Department will be conducting training seminars for its officers at all of the island’s marinas.

These seminars will equip officers with the necessary skills to make the transition to the new system. They will also provide customer service training to the officers.

The form, as well as the training, comes at a very good time because marine services in Grenada are enjoying rapid growth and expansion.

GBT’s Representative Mr. Danny Donelan said the public and private sector are therefore excited about this development, which they consider the first step towards the further facilitation of the clearing process.

These measures, along with the construction of new marinas serve to put Grenada in a position that makes it a worthy competitor among the yachting destinations of the Southern Caribbean."
