Bermudan Customs Department Picks BlackBerrys

Bermudan BlackBerry owners were warned last week that when they leave the Island with the wireless PDA devices, if they are unable to prove that they were not purchased elsewhere when they return, they may have them confiscated, or be obliged to pay import tax.

In its most recent newsletter, the Bermuda Chamber of Commerce announced that:

"The Chamber has been advised by the Bermuda Customs Department that they will confiscate any Blackberry device found on any persons reentering the country that do not have the relevant registered paperwork. M3Wireless has already had two customers experience this over the last 5 days."

"Please circulate this information to any Blackberry user in order to avoid this fate. If you have any questions, please call Bermuda Customs on 293-2424, who will advise of the necessary steps to ensure your Blackberry is safe."

Reporting on the matter, Bermuda's Royal Gazette revealed that the jurisdiction's BlackBerry users will need to obtain a registration slip for the device from the Customs Department, which they should keep with it when travelling in order to avoid confiscation or additional levies.
