The Jamaica Customs Agency warns members of the public against engaging persons who have claimed that they are able to facilitate the purchase of motor vehicles from the quarterly Motor Vehicle Auctions prior to the auction dates.

Under NO circumstances should members of the public engage these individuals or make any payments to them as this is an illegal operation that is in direct contravention of customs procedures. If approached by any such person, please make a report to Jamaica Customs at 750-3010 or via email at

Vehicles included in the Customs Motor Vehicle Auction can only be purchased on the dates that the auctions are held. Persons participating in the Auction must be registered by Jamaica Customs at the Queens Warehouses (230 Spanish Town Road, Norman Manley International Airport and Sangster International Airport).

The requirements for all auction registration are a valid photo identification card, one passport sized photo (taken no longer than six months ago) and the individual’s Tax Registration Number (TRN) card and the payment of an annual fee of J$2000.00
