Customs and Inland Revenue

Since the decision was made to utilize ASYCUDA as the Vanuatu Electronic Single Window System, efforts have been made to “rebrand” the ASYCUDA system as the Electronic Single Window System.

Upon implementation of the electronic system and network ASYCUDA, Automated System for Customs Data in 1999, it became imminent for the establishment of a unit that will ensure compliance to relevant laws and procedures that governs international cargo clearances.

All crafts, goods, and people crossing Vanuatu borders are required by Law to produce and complete a Customs Clearance.

Customs Border plays a vital role within the Department of Customs and Inland Revenue in executing and enforcing relevant laws and regulations to protect the welfare of Vanuatu.
