Customs Agency announces Xmas tax exemptions
The Customs Agency has announced that as of 1 December 2016 and through 7 January 2017, Dominicans who reside abroad and visit can bring “gifts” valued at up to US$3,000 to friends and relatives, providing they have not visited for the past six months for the tax exemption to be valid.
Only one type of item (for example electronics) is permitted per arriving person and one gift per family.
This time the DGA is allowing the items to be shipped by courier companies or consolidators. However, the person who picks up the goods at the DGA office with the supporting documents needs to comply with the same rules as individuals bringing the items in as part of their luggage.
There are restrictions in that motor vehicles, firearms, and industrial or farm raw materials are not allowed.
