Vehicles that are 10 years and older will not be permitted to enter Grenada after 31 December 2020.
That is the day when SR0 43 of 2020 which strictly prohibits any vehicle 10 years and over from entering the shores of Grenada, goes into effect. The initiative was first announced in the 2020 Budget Speech.
Vehicles shipped from the country of origin must arrive on or before 31 December 2020 in order to meet the requirement of the ban.
Any vehicle aged 10 years and over arriving in Grenada after the specified date, will not be permitted to be cleared unless listed among the exemptions. The importation of an unexempted vehicle 10 years and over is a breach of the Customs Act 9 of 2015, resulting in seizure and fines and penalties being imposed by a Court of law.
