If you’re shipping a car to Tanzania from the U.S.A., you should hire an international transport company. They have everything they need to assure a safe and successful delivery.
They will even help you fulfill the requirements set in the import policy which can be confusing to understand. Learning about the country’s import policy will help you to understand what is required a little bit better.
Information on Tanzania’s Auto Import Policy.
Tanzania is located in Eastern Africa. Having a car imported can be complicated, but it is possible. Aside from paying taxes and providing the right documents to Customs, you must make sure that your vehicle is lawfully allowed into the country. For example, any vehicle over the age of ten years is subjected to a penalty fee of 20%.
Luckily, when you hire professionals to handle the shipping process, their staff will already be familiar with the import policy and restrictions set by Tanzania. Nevertheless, it is recommended that all shipping customers contact the Embassy of Tanzania to gather further information about the policy, since import policies are ever-changing.
