Customs Registration of Importers Begins

Notice Board 17/10/2017

To help importers start using a system for entry declaration, the Customs Department will start registering importers. The registration takes place until 27 October 2017, from 8:30am to 4:00pm, Monday to Friday, on the 1st floor of Customs Headquarters, located at #42 Owens Roberts Drive (locally known as Airport Road).

Only after registration and formal recognition by Customs as an importer can they access the new online electronic system for entry declaration that comes into effect on 1 November 2017. Importers have to complete and submit entries electronically to Customs using the new gateway portal COLS (Customs Online System), which they will be able to access through the website http://www.customs.gov.ky.

To be registered, each individual has to visit Customs headquarters in person and provide relevant information including a government-issued identification, e.g., driver’s licence or passport. Additionally, companies and businesses will have to provide their business licence and/or company registration, including directorship.(GIS)
