SLASPA Com­mit­ted to En­forc­ing Re­lease of Im­ported Ve­hi­cles Pro­ce­dure

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The Saint Lu­cia Air and Sea Ports Author­ity as of Mon­day, Jan­uary 7, 2019 will like to ad­vise all ve­hi­cle im­porters to ad­here to the fol­low­ing process for the re­lease of im­ported ve­hi­cles from the fa­cil­ity.

Im­porters or own­ers must present im­por­ta­tion doc­u­ments, pay the re­quired du­ties, and pro­vide proof of reg­is­tra­tion of ve­hi­cles, in­clud­ing stick­ers and license plates and proof of in­surance. This is in keep­ing with the Mo­tor Ve­hi­cle and Road Traf­fic Act, Sec­tion10, which states, “All ve­hi­cles and trail­ers must be reg­is­tered be­fore it is per­mit­ted to use on the road.”

The call for en­force­ment of these pro­cesses fol­lows the pre­vail­ing chal­lenge with ve­hi­cle own­ers who fail to com­ply with the cor­rect pro­ce­dures.

Chief of Ports Po­lice at SLASPA, Mr. Kennedy Francis says, “SLASPA en­cour­ages per­sons to ad­here to this process to en­sure seam­less op­er­a­tions when trans­act­ing re­lated busi­ness with SLASPA.”

As of the ef­fec­tive date, im­ported ve­hi­cles will not exit the port without the nec­es­sary clear­ances from SLASPA and the Cus­toms and Ex­cise Depart­ment.

Hav­ing dis­posed of a most sump­tu­ous Christ­mas din­ner, the STAR's ed­i­to­rial depart­ment on the evening of De­cem­ber 29 set­tled down in the in­com­pa­ra­ble at­mos­phere of Big Chef to relive some of the more mem­o­rable hap­pen­ings at home and abroad.

Un­for­tu­nately, an emer­gency called away our most pul­chri­tudi­nous mem­ber, Clau­dia Elei­box be­fore Bill Mort­ley took the pic­ture!
