Shipping personal effects to Jamaica - the cheapest way

by Janet

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.
