Need for the Document[edit]

The purpose of an Export Certificate is to act as a means of identifying goods that accompany a person travelling overseas with the intention that the goods will be re-imported into the Cook Islands by that same person. It is not designed as a means of facilitating the entry of the goods into another country.

The certificate, together with the goods, must be presented to Customs before they are exported. On their return to the Cook Islands, the goods identified by the Certificate of export will be admitted free of duty (under section 141 of the Customs Revenue and Border Protection Act 2012) provided the unaltered certificate is available for presentation to Customs.

Here is a procedure on how to obtain a Certificate of Export.
