Does Bahrain charge import duties?

You’ll be happy to learn, that you can become eligible for import duty exemption in one of two ways. First, if you’re able to get a Residence Permit that’s good for at least two years - then your shipment can be brought into Bahrain without paying duty. Second, if the first option isn’t possible, then you can pay a customs deposit (which should be refunded once you take your goods back out of the country).

No matter which method you choose - duty exemption is only offered on used household items, which are more than one year old (1).

What paperwork will you need?

There’s a long list of documentation required by customs, starting with your passport, packing list and Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill. You also need to submit a letter of authorization, so your destination agent (like A1 Auto Transport) can help clear your goods through customs. Other specialized forms may be required, if your container is classified as a commodities shipment (2).

Does Bahrain charge import duties for your vehicle?

The short answer is that no duty exemption is available, and you will pay the going rate of about 5%. Be aware that you must comply with a good deal of regulations when shipping your vehicle - such as the requirement that it not have a full tank of gas during transit. Bahrain also only allows left-hand drive vehicles into the country, and these must meet GCC specifications (3).

What paperwork will you need for your vehicle?

You must present the right documents for your vehicle to be successfully processed through customs. This includes a Clearance Certificate, Traffic Technical Inspection, paperwork showing insurance coverage and your Bill of Lading (4). A more complete list can be found here - though this still may not be exhaustive.

Numerous additional regulations and paperwork requirements apply, to shipments of your household goods and vehicle. For a detailed and thorough accounting of everything that you’ll need - speak to customs for the latest information.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

Moving overseas is a big task that involves a lot of preparation, packing and unpacking as well as document preparation and processing. There are big and small details, which need to be considered top priority.

To make your international move easier, it is wise to prepare well; plan for your move even up to 6 months in advance. Since the goods will be handled frequently throughout the journey, package them in a secure way that eases their movement and storage. Liaise with the moving company you hire and make your order details known so they can work to meet your expectations.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

When moving to unfamiliar territory, having a trusted guide offers you the much needed confidence and peace of mind. While you can make the move solo, it may overwhelm you since there are many details to be remembered and acted upon. Having an experienced team handle your move will give you a stress-free relocation experience.

While conducting your search, you may have come across many moving companies that market themselves as the best in the industry. So, how do you narrow down to select the company which will offer you the best Bahrain International Moving Services?

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
