Guide to Sending Parcels to Bermuda

Before Juan de Bermúdez, the 181 isolated islands of Bermuda were undiscovered and uninhabited. Today, Bermuda is a self-autonomous British Territory. While that may be hard work, Bermudians relax on their fine beaches that face cerulean waters and bask under sub-tropical skies.

Bermuda may sit a 1,000-plus km off the U.S. east coast, but it is as connected electronically as any other first-world nation - 98% internet penetration rate, and boasts very high figures for social media use. So, shipping to this very rich nation - 3rd highest per capita income in the world - should be as enticing as having a day out on a Bermudan pink-sand beach.

While we have made every effort to ensure that the information on this page is accurate, Customs laws and procedures change regularly so it is important to consult a licensed broker in Bermuda before shipping any goods.

Required Documents


Shipping packages internationally requires a lot of documentation. This process alone can be confusing and time-consuming. So we’ve narrowed down what documents you might need and ranked them based on likeliness of being needed.

Document Type When? Details
Shipping Label / Bill of Lading Always required This is a label provided by the carrier (UPS, FedEx, DHL, etc.). Always required because the carrier needs to know the parcel's destination.
Commercial Invoice Required for all non-document shipments
For all non-document shipments, you will require 3 copies of the commercial invoice (to be included with your shipping labels). These are for customs purposes and need to be included inside a document pouch outside of the box.

When creating a shipment through the Secureship website, the system will help you create this document automatically.

B13a Required if value exceeds $2,000 per shipment or is a controlled good
A B13a is required if your shipment exceeds $2000 CAD or is a controlled good
and is destined to a country other than the US, Puerto Rico, or the US Virgin Islands

Learn more about the B13a form here.
Certificate of Origin (COO) Infrequently required

Allows a reduced or zero-rated import duty.
Canada has a preferential trade agreement with Bermuda. A COO proves that an item has been produced, manufactured or processed in Canada.

When an item with a COO is imported into Bermuda, it will incur a reduced or zero-rated import duty.
Certificate of Insurance (COI) Infrequently required

Shows that the shipment has been insured.
Banks may request a certificate of insurance when providing letters of credit for the goods. Otherwise, it is generally your choice whether to purchase insurance for the shipment.
ATA Carnet Infrequently required

Used to avoid duties and taxes on shipments of temporary nature.
If you ship goods of temporary nature to and from a country, you can obtain an ATA Carnet to expedite the customs clearance process and ensure that anything of temporary nature is not charged duties and taxes.

See Temporary import section
Packing list Infrequently required

No specific form required, but generally includes information regarding:

  • The exporter, importer and transport company
  • Date of issue
  • Number of freight invoice
  • Type and number of packages
  • Contents of each package
  • Marks and numbers
  • Net weight, gross weight and measurements of each package

Prohibited & Restricted Imports


Prohibited imports are not allowed entry into Bermuda whereas restricted imports may enter but must abide by rules governing quantity or have permits.

Prohibited Items

  • Indecent or obscene materials in any format, including material with children
  • Materials featuring excessive violence or cruelty
  • Medical cannabis (even if prescribed)
  • Any forbidden drug -
    cocaine, heroin, barbiturates,
    etc.
  • Weapons - knives,
    spear guns, knuckle
    dusters, etc.
  • Self-defence sprays
  • Stun guns

Restricted Items

  • Plants and their products
  • Produce
  • Medications

https://www.gov.bm/prohibited-and-restricted-goods

Duty & Taxes

Duty and taxes on shipments entering Bermuda are calculated using the CIF value of the shipment: The sum of the customs value plus insurance amount plus freight costs

CIF Value = Customs Value + Insurance Amount + Freight Costs

By calculating the CIF value of your shipment, you will be able to predict the monies owed by the recipient.

Recently, the country reduced to 0% the duty tax for certain healthy foods. Furthermore, there was an increase to the scope of items subject to a 75% 'sugar tax' imposed on certain 'non-nutritive luxury' food items.


Thresholds

The threshold (also called the de minimis value) for goods entering Bermuda is $30 BMD (about $35 CAD). This means that for shipments below this value, no duty charges or wharfage fees are incurred.

There is no GST or VAT in Bermuda.

Bermuda Shipping Insurance


You can purchase insurance through Secureship and it is provided by the carrier that will be transporting your shipment.

Each carrier will charge a different amount per $100 of declared insurance. If you indicate that you need insurance for your shipment our system will automatically include the insurance costs for your shipment.

Insurance is great to have in case your package is accidentally lost or damaged by the carrier. But be careful, not everything you ship is insurable. Worse - even if your package contains items that are insurable, if it doesn’t meet the ISTA 3A packaging standard, the insurance purchased through the carrier would not be available to you.

Here are some items that cannot be insured by the carrier:

  • Personal belongings
  • Antiques
  • Artwork
  • Liquids (including alcohol)
  • Televisions
  • Jewellery in excess of $500
  • Perishable goods
  • Glass or Ceramic
  • And many more items

For more information, please see the carrier's terms and conditions.
