The Importation Procedure

1. The cargo of arms and/or ammunition arrives in Trinidad and Tobago in accordance with the terms of the import permit.

2. The importer through the police in the division in which his business is located organises appropriate security to escort the shipment to its location.

3. The Customs and Excise Division (CED) examines the shipment at the port of entry to ensure that it coincides with the permit and then collects the requisite fees.

4. The Police would then charge and escort the shipment from the port to the importers' place of business.

5. The Police would use their copy of the import Permit to ensure that all of the shipment is accounted for on arrival at the designated location.
