Description

Clearance is carried out by the Customs department. Depending on the individual officer, different documentation may be requested.

  • A copy of the boat registration document
  • A copy of the captain´s/owner´s passport
  • Registration of the owner for a Guyanese TIN (Tax ID number) necessary to pay the clearance fee.

Permission is granted for 6 months, and it is straightforward to renew for a further six months if required. Beyond this, the yacht must either leave Guyana or be formally imported. 

Firearms and significant foreign currency must be declared.

Bringing animals into Guyana entails some work. As well as the usual health/vaccination certificate an Import Permit is required from the local Ministry of Agriculture. Animals from the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and several Caribbean countries may then enter. Animals from all other countries are quarantined for 90 days. 

A fee of G$2500 (USD 12.50) is charged by Customs for clearing in and again for clearing out. 

Dress code: long trousers and a collared long sleeve shirt are needed for clearance. Men and women in shorts or very casually dressed will be turned away from the offices.  The dress code is displayed on the doors of the offices.
