Yes, you can buy your Duty-Free on arrival in this country.
- Many gateway airports in this territory have arrival duty-free shopping facilities in the baggage claim area where you can buy tax-free goods before you pass through customs.
But, these stores are normally only located in the international arrival area of gateway airports, so if you are taking a domestic connecting flight,
- it is best to buy at your first point of arrival in the country.
An arrivals duty-free facility not only enables you to pick up any last-minute items that you were unable to buy at your outbound airport,
- but it gives you the inbound duty-free shopping opportunity to buy liquid products such as spirits or wine, so you can avoid any potential problems like confiscation by security.
