Returning residents and non-residents may be entitled to duty relief on their used personal and household goods under special circumstances.
If you are a returning resident you will need proof that you have been living overseas for more than one year.
If you are a first-time resident, you will need:
- proof that you have permission to live in Bermuda (work permit, spousal letter etc.);
- proof that your goods are older than six months if claiming relief.
If you are shipping your goods from overseas and claiming relief, you will need a copy of your Transfer of Residence Certificate.
You must ask a customs officer for this certificate at the airport, when you arrive to take up residence. There is no fee for the certificate. This certificate is processed immediately.
