Bringing your Personal Effects to Guernsey

If you are bringing your personal effects to Guernsey you will need to declare all the items that you are importing to Customs & Excise on an inventory. There is no standard format required for an inventory but it must be a complete and legible list of all the items you are importing.

If you are bringing your personal effects to Guernsey from outside of the Customs Union of the UK (inc NI), Isle of Man and Jersey and are transferring your residence to Guernsey, the import duty may be waived if:

Full customs declarations will need to be completed on goods imported from the European Union, as is currently the case for any goods imported from outside of the European Union.

As well as an inventory, a Personal Effects Declaration form, known as a C15 (for imports from within the Customs Union) or C16 form (for imports from outside the Customs Union) is also needed.

Please note any alcohol or tobacco products are not subject to the duty waiver and will be subject to an excise duty charge.

The C16 form can be found in the download section on this page.
