Shipping to Montserrat
With a population under six thousand, there are not that many shipments coming and going from Montserrat all that often. That being said, there are still a good amount of companies that service the island nation, especially since it is in close proximity to so many other islands in the Caribbean. You will need to ship there either via ocean cargo freight liners or by air mail, none the less, as there are no bridges to the island.

Tracking your shipping to Montserrat
It is a smart move to get a tracking number for you shipment when sending something over to Montserrat. This way you can keep an eye on your goods progress while in transit and make sure it is delivered safely to its intended recipient. You can also get a delivery confirmation on your package for a small additional fee which will alert you, either electronically or by the mail, when it is delivered. Check with your shipping company for what options they have available.
Shipping limitations to Montserrat
The island nation of Monteserrat does not have a formal list of prohibited items that you may not send to the island, except to say that you may not send any dangerous goods as defined by the International Air Transport Association (IATA). This does not mean that you should not double check this before you ship just to be sure the rules did not change though. You should also keep in mind that this is a British overseen territory and is therefore partly overseen administratively by the British government for security reasons. With this in mind, it would be wise to check for current UK standards for shipping restrictions and follow them as they will be more cumbersome that the ones listed for Montserrat and it is better to be safe than sorry.
