Due to the high volume of interest from overseas organisations and individuals to provide aid, donors can request duty and VAT exemption directly from the Ministry of Finance.
Items will be approved for exemption that can provide immediate relief for victims of the Winston.
Formal requests for exemption need to be submitted to Principal Economic Officer Mohammed Jabid via e-mail at [email protected] or via telephone (679) 932-5703.
Once an approval letter has been granted, shipments need to be addressed to:

Upon shipment, donors need to provide the Airway Bill or Bill of Landing, an invoice of the value of goods being shipped and the approval letter granted by the Ministry of Finance.
