These procedures have to be completed before your vehicle goes through the Customs Department for clearances. Based on the discretion of the senior customs official, the vehicle has to undergo detailed inspection or it can be passed through the Customs with ease.
Another step will be to clear the port charges for the Grenada Port Authority to get the authorized exit pass. If you do to comply with the provisions, penalties are applicable on the vehicle.
