Temporary entry of goods to be re-exported is allowed with advance arrangement with the Customs Division.  A deposit or bond covering the duty liability of such items must be posted prior to the item’s entry.  Items to be re-exported must be clearly identified by a mark such as a serial or part number.  Upon re-export, 10 percent of the duty liability becomes due for every three months the item remained in TT.  No distinction is made between warranty and non-warranty items entering TT for repair.
