declaration. We invite you to get closer to the regional customs
office in French Polynesia for making or preparing this formality. The attached document will explain the outline of the arrangements for temporary and direct you to useful addresses.
Concerning more specifically the radio equipment
, the answer to your question depends on the type of equipment.
For equipment installed on maritime radio, you are asked:
1) be in possession of your radio license
and the corresponding operator certificate;
2) use such equipment in accordance with international regulations
on maritime radio (especially on the frequencies allowed);
3) keep the radio equipment aboard the boat and not be sold in French Polynesia.
For mobile phones connected to the grid: no special requirements you will not be required (these devices are not subject to permission).
For all other radio equipment that you will use on board or disembark temporarily (for example: a walkie-talkie, a VHF
ground, a WiFi
access point, an amateur radio equipment, ...), you must provide to Customs a import
authorization for each. To obtain permission, you must fill out the attached application (one form per team) and return it by fax (+689 50 60 63) or by email
