The following additional customs and reentry rules apply for United States citizens returning from the Caribbean:


If you are a U.S. resident who has visited the Caribbean countries of Anguilla, the Cayman Islands, Guadeloupe, Martinique, St. Barth's, St. Martin (French side), or the Turks and Caicos Islands for at least 48 hours, you may bring home, for personal use, up to $800(USD) worth of goods duty-free, as long as you haven't used any portion of the $800(USD) allowance during the 30 days preceding your trip. You may combine your $800(USD) exemption with family members. If you visit one of the aforementioned islands for fewer than 48 hours, the duty-free allowance is $200(USD), which cannot be pooled with other family member's exemptions.

If you're returning from the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI), the duty free allowance is $1,600(USD). If your Caribbean travel included the USVI and another country, the $1,600(USD) allowance still applies, but at least $800(USD) worth of goods must be from the USVI.

You may bring back to the U.S. up to one liter of alcohol (if you are 21 or older) or perfume containing alcohol, up to 200 cigarettes, and up to 100 non-Cuban cigars. If you stay less than 48 hours, you may bring home up to 150 ml of alcohol, 50 cigarettes, and 10 non-Cuban cigars.

If you visit the USVI, you are allowed to bring home up to 1,000 cigarettes (all must be from the USVI) and 5 liters of alcohol, but at least 1 liter must be from the USVI.

You may bring home original works of Caribbean art--such as paintings, drawings, and sculptures--and antiques (officially defined as objects more than 100 years old) duty-free.

You may send packages home duty-free, with a limit of one parcel per addressee per day, with the exception of alcohol or tobacco products, or perfume worth more than $5(USD).

You can mail up to $200(USD) worth of goods home to the U.S. for personal use; be sure to write "PERSONAL USE" on the parcel and attach a list of its contents and their retail value.

If you send home a parcel containing personal belongings that have been used, write "AMERICAN GOODS RETURNED" on the package to avoid a duty fee.

You may send up to $100(USD) worth of goods as a gift ($200 from the USVI) to someone in the U.S. provided you write "UNSOLICITED GIFT" on the package.
