Import duties levied by Guyana
With no duty exemption extended even to shipments of used household belongings, you will pay the standard rate. The precise amount isn’t specified by the knowledgeable sources consulted - so speak with customs to learn more. In addition, if you fail to provide a Change of Residency Certificate, then an additional fee will be charged. Called the Octroi de Mer, this fee will be anywhere from 12% to 32% (1).
Documentation prescribed by Guyana
You’ll need to provide proof that you’ve established residency within the country. This can be shown with a lease agreement, utility bill or other pertinent document (which must be from 3 months ago or less). A detailed inventory with monetary values is also required, and this should be written in French.
A Certificate of Change of Residence or a Certificate of Transfer (from your company) is needed as well. A Non-Sale Certificate and a Certificate of Property are also required documentation. Finally, a packing list, your passport and the Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill for the shipment must be submitted (2).
Import duties levied by Guyana on your vehicle
The import duty rate currently charged by Guyana isn’t enumerated. That means you’ll again need to consult customs, to determine what fees will be assessed on your particular shipment. It is clear that the taxes and duties involved in vehicle importation are expensive, and you’re limited to bringing just a single vehicle into Guyana.
It also must have a 2,000 cc engine or larger, and you must notify the destination agent before the vehicle arrives in port. This gives them time to process the permit your vehicle will need, to successfully pass through customs (3).
Another source mentions that the Octroi de Mer fee of 12% - 32% also applies to your vehicle, if you fail to provide a Change of Residency Certificate (4).
Documentation prescribed by Guyana for your vehicle
When importing your vehicle into Guyana, you must give customs certain documentation. This includes the title and registration for the vehicle, and the purchase invoice or receipt. A valid Import Permit is also required, along with proof of insurance coverage. A Non-Sale Certificate is also mandatory, and this simply states that you won’t transfer ownership, lend out to others or get rid of the vehicle while in Guyana (5).
Be aware that additional paperwork may be needed, for both your vehicle and household goods. Other regulations may also be enforced, so it’s best to speak with customs before proceeding with your move.
