Customs in Bermuda

They are very easily accessible too so if there is any need to contact them, about a duty assessed or questions about documentation, you can reach out to them via their web site or their phone number, both posted on line.
Security concerns when shipping to Bermuda
Bermuda is a generally safe island, one that does not have much concern for security in regards to shipping. The only thing that may pop up when discussing this would be road accidents that could impact delivery times. The roads in Bermuda are notoriously narrow in most places and are very windy with jagged rock faces on the sides at places. With locals whipping around the bends and tourist trying to navigate on rented scooters there are a fair amount of minor accidents on the roadways there. This can cause minor delays for the passage of other vehicles and thereby can delay your packages from being delivered.
Shipping destinations in Bermuda
Bermuda is not all that big of an island. It is easily navigable and enjoys delivery services all throughout the country. In fact, the largest city, Hamilton, may get their packages only hours before the 'suburbs' do so this is a nominal thing to be worried about.
Required documents when shipping to Bermuda
When shipping to Bermuda you will want to have the original commercial invoice and a Bill of Lading attached to your shipment so that the Customs department can check them when the parcel arrives. You will also want to have a Certificate of Origin filled out and any special permits for restricted items. Failure to have the appropriate documents with your shipment can cause a bit of a delay in the ultimate delivery of your shipment.
