Shipping services to Haiti
Being that Haiti an island, you are more often than not going to be shipping your items to Haiti via either ocean cargo freight liners or air mall. The exception to this will be if it crosses the border via a truck or car from the Dominican Republic, which is the only other country on the island and therefore the only possible way to not have something shipped using air mall or the ocean freight liners. Typically ocean shipping will be less expensive but much slower than air mall.

Haiti has an unstable government which translates into most facets of their economy. This is the main reason why shipping to Haiti can be risky. There is infamous corruption in the Customs office with packages being stolen or given to the wrong people. Also, most every country has a duty system whereby the assess a duty, or tax, upon your shipment if it is declared above a certain value. In Haiti this is an objective practice and sometimes fees are assessed higher than they are supposed to be assessed. If you question the fees you are being charged, you should seek an appeal of the fee.
