Will you pay any import duties?
As long as your household belongings have been both owned and used by you for a minimum of the last six months - you won’t pay any duty to bring them into Angola. You’ll also need to establish your ownership of these items, and have your paperwork filed a full 3 weeks before your shipment enters port. Also, if the total CIF value of your goods is over $10,000 - then a 2% tax will apply (even for duty-exempt shipments) (1).
Will you need any paperwork?
When relocating to a foreign country like Angola, you’ll need to have the required paperwork to be processed by customs. This includes a packing list written in Portuguese, and two copies of either your Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill. You’ll also need to submit a valued inventory, and your Work Visa (or Ministry “parecer”). Your passport and a Loading Certificate (if your goods are being shipped over the water) should also be provided (2).
Will you pay any import duties on your vehicle?
If you’ll be importing your vehicle into Angola permanently, then duty exemption won’t be possible. You’ll be required to pay between 40 - 45% of the combined amount of the vehicle’s value, the costs for freight and insurance (CIF).
However, you are allowed to import a vehicle for two years (with a one year extension sometimes being granted), without paying duty. Termed temporary importation, you’ll have to place a bond deposit for the full amount of the applicable duties - but this will be refunded when you take the vehicle back out of the country. You should also know, that only vehicles manufactured more than three years ago, are eligible for importation into Angola (3).
Will you need any paperwork for your vehicle?
Various documents are required when importing your vehicle, including your freight invoice and pre-shipment inspection paperwork. You’ll also need your passport and visa, along with a valued inventory and Original Bill of Lading. A CNCS (or Loading Certificate) must also be presented to customs (4).
Many other regulations and filing requirements apply to both your shipment of household goods and your vehicle. For a more complete picture of what you’ll need before moving, contact customs for more information.
