Remarks by the Comptroller
It gives me great pleasure, on behalf of the Management and staff of the Customs and Excise Department of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines to welcome you to our official Website. It is our hope that you will find it user-friendly and informative.

We are delighted to be able, through this medium to introduce our clients, stakeholders and the general public to some basic information on the structure, roles and functions, policies and legal framework which guide the operations of our organization.

Among the objectives of our modernization programme are:

  1. Providing the trading business community with a satisfactory level of facilitation and
  2. Ensuring compliance with the existing regulatory framework. This website forms part of our strategy in fulfilling these objectives, by making the Customs Laws, regulations, processes, procedures and administrative guidelines easily accessible to our clients, stakeholders and to general public. We are endeavouring in a most transparent way to maintain certainty which we hope will result in public trust and confidence in our operations.

Our environment is constantly changing as new technological innovations and challenges are encountered. We will continue to strive to deliver the best quality service to you our valued clients and stakeholders as we continue with our modernization programme. As we move forward and as you explore this facility, we encourage you to see it as your duty to provide us with your valuable feedback, thus helping us to enhance the facility.

Let me on behalf of the Management and staff wish you all productive viewing of this facility and we look forward to your continued partnership with us.

Grenville A. John
