La Douanne In Haiti, How Much Does Haiti Customs Really Cost?

Why is it that NO Haiti shipping company ever tells you how much something will cost to get it OUT of customs in Haiti. LA DOUANNE (customs in Haiti) is like a BIG MASONIC TEMPLE!

All the Haitian shipping companies I called told me flat out that they know nothing about Haitian Customs fees and prices.

They are more than happy to take your money, just for shipping that is, and they basically tell you: GOOD LUCK with "La Douanne!" (Haitian customs)

Let me ask you a question:

WHERE do you go?

WHO do you call AHEAD OF TIME if you want to know how much it will cost to get an item -- say for example: a 2000 BMW 525 with 170,000 miles on it -- out of La Douanne in Haiti?

Everyone I ask tells me I need to know somebody who knows somebody!

This is really getting on my nerves!

I have limited experience with containers in haiti.

its the only time in my life I paid a "bribe".

I put bribe in quotes becuase its my understanding that the customs official you are talking too may not have been paid in a while ...he and his family have to eat. being new to the whole thing and they were so nice I asked what would be good and they replied " its up to the generosity of your own heat. I paid $250 usd to get a container released but be careful.

Also, my friend they regulate the cost based on the blue book value; which means whatever you tells them your vehicle is valued, they will ignore and charge you based on the kbb. You really have no say in what they charge.

The reason why you can't get an exact amount is because Haiti's custom is not really regulated.

You can rest assured it will cost you at least $2,500usd to get that bimmer out. That's just a ballpark.

It could be more (or

My friend,

what I try to explain to is: President Martelly tried to be President of Haiti and he became President, in the middle of people with demon's process: some of them are freemasons, some of them are loup-garoup and all kind of demonic forces.

These demons they have, already put their foots on the Haitian's necks to make the Haitian's people suffer, to keep Haiti miserable, unclean etc. if you serve the same gods with them how you will change it?
