    I apologize if there is information regarding getting through customs but I have a question. I am taking my out of town bags, gifts, a bose sound system etc. to Montego Bay for the wedding. Are there things I should know about clearing customs going to and from Jamaica?

    Thanks...just want to be clear on the potential problems if any...

      Yo should not have a problem. Just dont have any raw foods or anything. I made sure I wrote a letter to Customs, TSA etc stating that I had wedding items for your marriage and to please handle with care if a search was warranted. good luck

        You"ll be fine. They only care if your bringing food or plants and of course drugs.

          While I didn't travel to Jamaica I did just return from Mexico. My mom checked 4 large suitcases, 3 of which were over weight. We later realized she brought around 300lbs of luggage including her carry ons!!! Anyway she didn't have any problems. A couple of people at customs kind of looked at her funny and then asked about her luggage, she explained her situation and they asked if she minded if they looked in one of the bags. She said sure and I have receipts if that helps. They said that's even better and took a quick look. She said they were more curious than anything.
