Overview of Customs

Customs Overview

The Customs and Excise Department is a Government agency with the responsibility of protecting the country from potential risks arising from international trade and travel, while facilitating the legitimate movement of people and goods across the border.

As the nation's gatekeepers, we use intelligence and risk assessment to select and target our physical checks of containers, vessels or travelers. We also conduct investigations and audits, and prosecute offenders who breach Customs Laws and other Government regulations. Customs also exercises controls over restricted and prohibited imports, including pornography, drugs, firearms and harmful substances, such as hazardous waste and ozone-depleting products.

At the Customs Department, we are proud to continue Customs' long tradition of service to the country. We willingly accept the responsibility of helping to keep the nation safe, secure and prosperous, and we are dedicated to achieve that.
