Immigration and Customs Travel Form


Recommended Posts


As advised/required by P&O cruises we have completed the Barbados Immigration and Customs Travel Form prior to leaving home and have received an email receipt from travel@barbados.gov.bb

One of the questions on the customs form required a declaration (amongst others) on whether we were bringing in ‘pharmaceuticals’. I answered ‘yes’ presuming that this also covered prescription medication. Does anyone know if this is correct or have experience of the border procedures?

I wouldn't sweat it too much.

You're not the first person to be travelling

with loads of prescribed meds!

Keep your meds in the labelled containers

that were issued to you, at source,

so they can read Exactly What it is, plus dates, dosages, etc.


They should have a fun time with me,

next time I travel with multiple cardiac meds: I swallow

about 8-9 tablets a day to keep the heart running

after my STEMI in May 2020....but like I said,

neither you or I are the first ppl to travel with lotsa meds!

And another thing...


It won't hurt to carry an extra 3-4 days worth of daily meds

just in case your travel adventure/cruise

takes an unexpected, unforseen turn, due to weather or whatever!
Because ship happens!

Remember the ppl on Carnival Triumph, whose 7 day cruise
turned into nearly two weeks? OK.. that sorta scenario!
Better to have extra meds and not need them, than vice versa!

Just back from Rhapsody OTS. Filled form out same as you. Went through passport control showed QR Code from email. Then to baggage claim. Purchased two bottles of wine in Duty free shop in baggage claim area. Collected  our luggage and went to exit through Customs.


There are 2 lanes. One to declare and one for nothing to declare. I went towards the declare lane, which was empty. Guy at head of line asked if I had anything to declare. I said wine. He said I did not have and sent us to the nothing to declare lane. As said above don’t worry about the meds. As long as labeled should not be an issue.
