Customs and Excise

We are the Isle of Man’s indirect tax, customs and financial sanctions authority. Our vital work collects indirect tax money that helps pay for the Isle of Man’s public services. We also ensure that customs and excise controls, financial sanctions and export and trade licensing controls are implemented and enforced.

Passport, Immigration and Nationality service transfer

On 16 January 2024 the Passport, Immigration and Nationality services transferred to the Customs and Excise Division under the Treasury.
