Shipping to British Indian Ocean Territory
The British Indian Ocean Territory (also referred to as the Chagos Islands) is currently overseen by the British government. The native population was driven from their homes in the 1960's and now what remains is a military installation involving the United States and the British governments and is only home to about four thousand people at any given time. Therefore, if you were to ship anything there, it would be going to that military installation and would therefore be subject to the military's bylaws and guidelines for shipping.

That being said, it does receive shipments via ocean cargo freight carriers and air mail. And being that everything the goes there will be for military or military personnel use, the screening process to let it into the Territory is somewhat cumbersome, as security and safety is of the highest priority.

Keep in mind that this is the military so all shipments are handled with the utmost care and concern. If you ship something there and it clears their clearance process for entering the Territory, you can rest assured that it will get to your intended recipient in a timely manner as both the United States and the British militaries are very efficient in this manner. That being said, you can always opt to get a tracking number affixed to your package which will alert you when it arrives safely to its new home.
