Requirements for moving to Puerto Rico

One of the first questions people have is “Do I need a passport to move to Puerto Rico?” Good news - the answer is no! Since Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory, no passport is required for entry form the U.S. mainland (although some sort of government issued ID is required). Custom fees also do not apply.

In a non-binding referendum on Tuesday, Puerto Ricans showed interest in changing the island’s status from a U.S. territory to a U.S. state. In the vote, Puerto Ricans were asked two questions.

The first question asked if Puerto Rico should keep its current status as a self-governing commonwealth. The commonwealth allows Puerto Ricans living on the islands to be U.S. citizens, but they cannot vote for president. They are, however, represented by a non-voting delegate in the House of Representatives.

54% (922,374 people) said they would like the change to occur, while 46% (786,749 people) said they wanted to keep the status quo.

The second question asked Puerto Ricans to choose among three options, regardless of their answer to the first question. Their options were to choose U.S. Statehood, sovereign free association, or independence.

Moving to Puerto Rico - Clearance and Taxes

If you're moving to Puerto Rico, there are some taxes and customs procedures that you will have to keep in mind.

SED form
In my last blog, I spoke a little about the Shipper's Export Declaration (SED) form. This form is required by the US Census Bureau on any items of more than $2,500 in value. Moving companies should file this for you, but there is usually a nominal fee for the filing. Secondly, moving companies will also charge a sales tax. This is paid to the government of Puerto Rico and is also a small amount, usually less than $30 regardless of the move size.
