Customs to no longer accept cheques

The Department of Customs has plans to stop accepting personal cheques. From Monday (14 November), Customs collection points will only accept cash, bank drafts, or credit and debit cards in either CI or US dollars.

The number of bounced cheques has been identified as the reason for the policy change.

Collector of Customs Charles Clifford said, “We apologise for any inconvenience this change might cause some of our customers, especially those who are always law-abiding.”

There’s also a reminder that those who tender bad cheques knowingly are committing a criminal offence.
