Mrs. Anita Montoute
Comptroller of Customs (Ag)

It is a great honour to welcome you to the official website of the Saint Lucia Customs and Excise Department. We are a unique arm of the wider government reform agenda, to be more responsive to the business community and citizens of St. Lucia, thereby improving security and justice. This agenda mandates us as a department to facilitate legitimate trade and travel, effective border management and revenue collection. The use of modern technology has made it possible to digitalize some of our processes. Automated System for Customs Data (ASYCUDA) is evidence of this digitalization. This has now been updated to ASYCUDA World and it provides for a myriad of functions, including e-signature and biometrics, which contribute significantly to the security and trade agendas.
