Grantley Adams International Airport

Talk about last minute duty-free shopping, then you'll want to talk about Barbados' Grantley Adams International Airport. This airport has come from a humble grassfield back in 1939 and has developed over the years into the ultra-modern facility that graces our shores and welcomes all to the beautiful and intriguing island of Barbados.


The Barbados Airport has a new arrivals building containing immigration - duty free shopping - baggage hall - customs - and a location for tour operators and offices for government departments at the airport.



Our expanded airport terminal will feature two food areas: The Landside Food Court and the Airside Food Court.


The Landside food court contains a Bar (Banks Pub), a coffee bar (Café Blue) and a local fast food restaurant (Cheffette).


The Airside Food Court will contain four food counters operated by two different operators: The counters will be:

• Island Grill
• Island Grab and Go (Sandwiches)
• Asia Express (Asian Food)
• The Gourmet Pasty Co


The Airside Food Court will also contain a bar (Gate Zero Bar) and a coffee bar (Christophes)

Dutiable Goods

Travellers are required to pay customs duties and taxes on all dutiable goods. Duties and taxes must also be paid on all items in excess of your personal Customs Allowance (See Sections under Concessions and Allowances). Duties and taxes, if applicable, are normally charged on the Transaction Value of the imported goods, i.e, the price actually paid for them. Where there is no identifiable value declared, such as in the case of a gift, Customs reserve the right to value the item(s).

Where goods are dutiable, ad valorem or specific rates may be applied. An ad valorem rate is a percentage of the assessed value of the imported goods such as 20 %. A specific rate is a specified amount per unit of weight or other quantity such as $ per kg.
