Guide to Sending Parcels to Trinidad and Tobago

The people of Trinidad and Tobago are a diverse amalgam, and they have created a rich cultural heritage drawn from around the world. And they flaunt it enthusiastically in their dance, music, and festivals. The inventors of calypso, steel pan, and limbo, Trinidadians also celebrate Diwali, Christmas, Chinese New Year, Carnival, and Eid-Al-Fitr amongst a host of other holidays.

But this fun-loving two-island nation has worked hard to create one of the Caribbean's richest and most developed countries.

Thus, a thriving e-commerce economy exists in Trinidad and Tobago with government support and a 135% penetration rate for mobile phones and 73% for internet users. For Canadian shippers, this is very good news indeed. Not only is English the official language of Trinidad and Tobago, but two of our big banks - BNS and RBC - are well established on the islands.

Information for this page was taken from the Customs Regulations of Trinidad and Tobago and the Trinidad and Tobago Postal Corporation.

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

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 Trinidad and Tobago. A COO proves that an item has been produced, manufactured or processed in Canada.

When an item with a COO is imported into Trinidad and Tobago, 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 is required, but generally includes information regarding:

  • The exporter, importer and transport company
  • Date of issue
  • Number of freight invoice
  • Type and number of packages

Duty & Taxes

The calculation of duty and taxes on imports is done by Trinidadian customs officials using the CIF value of a shipment, i.e. the sum of the customs value plus insurance amount plus freight costs.

CIF Value = Customs Value + Insurance Amount + Freight Costs

If you were to calculate the CIF value of a shipment you sent to Trinidad and Tobago, you would know the duty and taxes owed by its recipient.


Thresholds

There are no threshold or de minimis values on imports to Trinidad and Tobago. That means all imports of any value will incur duty and taxes with one notable exception: On-line purchases of computers such as laptops, tablets, and notebook-style will not incur duty, VAT, or the Online Purchase Tax.

Trinidad and Tobago 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)
  • Television
  • 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.
