Bermuda Importer/Trader ID Requirement

As of September 30, 2020 Bermuda Customs will enforce the requirement to provide an Importer’s Trader ID, also referred to as Customs Automated Processing System (CAPS) ID, for all imports into Bermuda.

  • CAPS ID is a six digits number issued by Bermuda Customs
  • Importer’s CAPS ID is required to process import declaration.
  • Providing this information upfront, with shipment details, will avoid delays at the time of import.

The CAPS ID/Import Trader ID should be placed on the AWB after the description of contents (Example CAPS ID 123456) and also on the Customs Invoice in the Receivers Tax ID field.
