  1. Mek mi see where our priorities are, now this is cause for concern Jamaican government in my estimation sit down and think up ways to rob poor people and keep them poor. Congrats this here is a good one let’s see how many comments it will get as it is not anybody’s trivial business this is serious business it’s time we speak out against these exploitations and fight the right battles as a nation for the sake of our children

  2. Hi Met, the fees that are collected by the post office are actually customs duty charges. They treat everything as goods etering the ports so yes they charge as they would at the airport or at the wharves. That 16580 is however not the total paid though, they pay about 40% of that amount. (Former customs officer)

  3. I have encountered this same difficulty with the Post Office. In December my son father sent a parcel for him with a few clothing items a sneaker & a water gun. The sender paid US$70 ($JA$7,840.) to mail the item I thought maybe I would only be required to pay a small fee for nothing exceeding JA$1000 maximum. To my surprise when the registered slip arrived the figure to clear the parcel was a whopping JA$8,627.00 for custom duties & GCT bullshit. So thats a total of JA$16,467 just to mail & clear it through the mail. I dont quite remember the exact weight of the package right now but I remember it was a little bigger than a shoe box light enough that my son could carry it with his 1 hand. I remember thinking how absurd that was when a barrel sent at the wharf with food & clothing item (not for resale)would be approximately JA$5,000 Upon arriving home we realize that some of the items were missing including the toy gun with a message from customs which said the item was forbidden by the Ministry of Security to enter into the country. While I understand that playing with a toy gun in their estimation might/maybe encourage a child to want to gravitate to using real weaponry I had to explain this the best way I possibly could to my son, who enquired if he wasnt getting it if it would be returned to his dad, I told it it wouldnt. Well I can just imagine that 1 lucky child of a custom worker had an unexpected toy water gun to play with while my son was not. Just plain craziness it was very discouraging & my son said before he send a next parcel through d mail he would rather they charged him for an extra luggage at the Airport than allow that form of extortion

    1. toy gun forbidden? U know a teef dem teef it….How can what u pay to clear the goods be more than the goods itself? What ina post office fi pay gct pan???What is the percentage of the gct? Dem teef and they are collecting all of this revenue and KPH elevator never did a work fi months

    WHEN THEM BEG ME MI JUST TELL THEM TALK TO THE WIFE. CAUSE I DO NOT KNOW WHAT WAS ALREADY GIVEN AND THEM ALWAYS A TRY GINAL FOREIGNERS..

  7. Jamaica postal service don’t catch up with modern times. The price of postage steady increasing yet it takes two months to get a card from there in South Florida. Suppose a did Alaska? kmt. Portia gone take another 8 billion from world bank yet the amenities in the country not improving.

  8. No badda talk wen yuh guh dung anvago through airport, dem waan charge and Google your personal clothes and shoes. Bout yuh only allow $500 US worth of things. Tell mi I am going to sell, wah kinda sale woman mi wuda be fi have only one size clothes and shoes? We haffi change it and demand JUSTICE like Rosie. Also, why a $100 credit cost almost $150? Almost 50% inna tax. JA do betta before the ppl revolt.
