Shipping personal effects to Jamaica - the cheapest way
This is an amazing resource, THANKS!!
I have searched and I cant find the answer to my question, I am sure it's been asked a million times but I cant find the answer sorry.
I am a non resident but hope to apply for residency as a partner of a Jamaican citizen next year.
I have bought land and am building a simple dwelling with him.
I want to import some personal effects, it will be about half a container, ie more than a barrel full. What is the cheapest way to do this and avoid the incredible 40% import duty!
Lots of the things I want to import I cant get in JA and I am all for helping the local economy but there are some personal and precious things I want to have with me.
Thanks for your question. I have posted it on our friendly community forum where like-minded persons reside.
Keep your fingers crossed, and watch the response/comment section below. I expect a contribution soon.
