Cuban authorities fighting shuttle trade

New customs regulations aimed at countering the "shuttle" trade, have
come into effect in Cuba. Starting with December 30th, customs officials
will confiscate goods and products that are imported into the country by
private individuals "for commercial purposes." Customs will be guided by
two new resolutions of the General Customs of Cuba, which determine the
amount of imported products or goods not considered "commercial
imports." The new resolutions also determine duty rates for allowed
import goods.

As reported earlier by "Granma" newspaper, tourists arriving on the
island are entitled to duty-free import of items of personal belongings,
as well as jewelry, cameras, computers and other items of personal use,
subject to mandatory subsequent removal from the country. For other
categories of passengers a different procedure of goods import and
payment of customs tariffs is presupposed.

In addition, the "Granma" specifically stated that individuals arriving
in Cuba have no right to transport goods and products intended for other
persons in the form of parcels or packages, reports RIA Novosti. (RIAN)
