CUSTOMS TARIFF

As a member of the World Customs Organization (WCO), one significant obligation to Customs is to ratify the terms and conditions as set out by the Customs Cooperation Council (COC). This includes the adoption of the Customs Tariff nomenclature under the International Convention on the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System.

Customs has adopted the latest Harmonized System version 2012. This harmonizes codification of all imports and exports into and from Samoa. All correlation and soft copies of this available tariff documents are subject to changes in accordance with any amendments to the Customs laws and regulations.

CUSTOMS PROCEDURES

Samoa Customs works closely with other government and international enforcement agencies to detect and deter unlawful movement of goods and people across the border. The task of intercepting illegal drugs and firearms at all ports of entry has been greatly improved due to the enforcement and implementation of standard operating procedures  and tools such as the mobile x-ray machine, detector dogs,  and other technologies.

Changes are now in place through the ongoing Customs Modernization Project aiming at strengthening its services:
    1. By improving the revenue flows for provision of government services
    2. By providing better services to the trading community
    3. By implementing effective & efficient border management procedures
    4. By improving the capacity to monitor and provide timely statistics

The introduction of the Automated Systems for Customs Data World version also known as the ASYCUDA WORLD, capitalizes on the web technology to connect with its customers anywhere locally and abroad.Customs have now made available all external Standard Operating Procedures and can be downloaded here. Updated versions will be available soon.
