Want to know the process and length of time it takes to become a customs & excise officer.

1. Any exams with the interview ?
2. How long service commission does take (normally i.e. no bribes and crap) to call you back?


thanks ppl... :drinking: :drinking:

More than likely hundreds if not more applied for this so firstly there would be an exam to eliminate some then from the remainder there would interviews for further elimination. I'm not sure how long they would take tho

And well time frame - Immigration received over 4000 applications last year, exam is set for 2014.

So you have a very long wait, I won't hold my breath waitin for da wukk. (possible 2015 or early 2016 exam).

Also is order of merit, jus cuz yuh "pass" don't mean u gettin de wukk...cuz it go have people who pass better than you...or people know them better than you

You can visit the scd.tt website and get the circular with the ad for the customs and excise officer ad and also the application forms

Send in to scd before the deadline Nd wait for acknowledgemt letter and then after letter to write the exams, ur results will be mailed to u, if ur successful wait on letter or a call when the set interviews

This will take a while, maybe 2-4 years or more, real ppl applying for this, even ppl who already appointed and just want to try something else

I know people who applied previously and never even got an acknowledgment.
Someone applied and got called up for work about 8 yrs later.

I was of the impression that police and prison was easy to get in once you can pass everything. Off course then 2 service is most dangerous

COI is dog work, the hours are ridiculous for the money you get.

The big fish get all the spoils while the COI climbing ship on a rope ladder and falling into the gulf of paria.

Mostly all the clerks4life will apply, seeing they can't go any further in their public service lives.

But anyhow, them done have they people already.

One of dem occifers had marked a labelled 7 inch PC-tablet as an Mp3 player on an invoice once. I sure they even powered it on when they opened the package to inspect it. 35% duty + vat one time. Queried it twice. No response.

I thought was just my mind alone this crossed.

Plenty of them think if them is costum occifer they fren and famalee could bring eeen ting and eh pay tax. They seizing and theefing from aside and all alcohol getting confiscated.

With the Immigration Officer applications almost all of them cant swim and if i'm not mistaken that's a requirement. sigh
