Botswana International Moving Services

Changes are encountered both at a personal level and also by companies. The change may also include change of location, with the individual or company having to move to another country, along with their equipment, office inventory, or household goods. Doing a self-move is not recommended when moving overseas. For this reason, you can hire reliable international moving services.

How Much Does It Cost to Move to Botswana?

The cost of moving internationally to Botswana can range anywhere from $2,000 - $12,000 depending on a variety of factors such as the size of move, total distance, route, transportation method, and current market trends.

The cost of transporting household possessions to Botswana is determined by factors other than the size of the home being emptied. To ship a two-bedroom house to Botswana, it will cost between $4,500 and $10,000.

There are other factors to consider as well. An immigration lawyer, packing, unpacking, and shipping overseas are among the considerations.

International Shipping

The process of moving your belongings across international borders requires a great deal of planning. The process of moving stuff doesn't end with loading a truck. Working with an experienced international moving company will ensure a smooth shipping process. You will have to pay a lot of money for international shipping. The cost may vary from $1,000 to $10,000.

Packing and Unpacking

It is true that some moving companies charge for packing and unpacking, but not all of them. If you're migrating to a foreign country, you may need to do this. When shipping internationally, you must obtain clearance. As a result, the moving firm must ensure that no illegal items will be delivered, and vouch for the imported goods.

Because of this, many movers pack and unpack their own possessions. The goal is to avoid penalties for shipping illegal products. A fee may be assessed for this service. You will still need to purchase packing supplies if the firm lets you pack your items yourself to save money.

Lawyer

It can be difficult to understand the documents required for international relocation. Therefore, many people seek the help of a lawyer. A lawyer deals with these kinds of documents. Due to their extensive experience handling them, the process can move much more smoothly and quickly. It is, however, a fee-based service. It is realistically rather expensive to hire a decent lawyer, depending on where you live and whether the lawyer charges by the hour or by the case.

Bring Your Vehicle Botswana

Import duty for Botswana

When moving into the country, you’ll likely want to bring more than your vehicle. Importing your household goods would typically incur duties - but Botswana allows you to be exempted from these fees. In order to qualify, you must bring your goods in no later than six months after obtaining your Work Permit. Also, even if you’re granted duty exemption - it appears that value-added tax (VAT) of 10% will still be charged. However, this may only apply to certain items or new goods (1).

Import paperwork for Botswana

In order to process your shipment of household belongings, customs will need two copies of Form CE 101 and your passport. You’ll also need to submit a comprehensive inventory (with values included) and Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill. A Letter of Employment is also required, and it should state that you’ll be working for your company for more than two years. You also must show a Residence Permit, Permanent Work Permit or Long-Term Permit. Receipts for certain items is also mandatory (2).

Import duties for your vehicle

Botswana is kind enough to grant duty exemption, when importing your personal vehicle into the country. You must import it no later than six months after being issued your Work Permit, otherwise you’ll have to pay 10% VAT. Other stipulations also apply - including the requirement that you not sell, transfer or get rid of your vehicle for at least 2 years (3).

International Import Paperwork Botswana

Import paperwork for your vehicle

You’ll need to turn in a completed Form CE101 (2 copies) and your passport, along with a purchase invoice or Bill of Sale. Either a Residence Permit or Import Permit are also required by customs. Application form IC.2 should also be submitted, and A1 Auto Transport can provide this. A valid registration from your origin country must be presented, which proves your ownership of the vehicle for a minimum of 12 months. Other required documentation includes a Certificate of Clearance issued by the police (4).

This list of paperwork and duty requirements isn’t comprehensive - so it’s important that you consult customs before shipping your items.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

  • Start making preparations as soon as you know that you are going to relocate.
  • Contact the Botswana Embassy in the US so that you may know the required paperwork and to familiarize yourself with the various regulations.
  • Understand the country that you will be relocating to so as to grasp the culture, modes of transport and policies regarding the import of various items.
  • Look for a reliable mover who offers BotswanaInternational Moving Services.

A-1 Auto Transport can help you move your household goods internationally. Call 888-509-3213 to get a free, no obligation to buy price quote on interstate moving services.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

Botswana is located in Southern Africa. Although it is a landlocked country, it is possible to get shipping options that are affordable and reliable. The point of entry will be South Africa and from there, you can transport your belongings to Botswana. This process can be lengthy and even more costly for you to handle alone. For this reason, you will need the services of a professional mover who provides Botswana International Moving Services. This will make the move hassle-free for you and since the mover is experienced in shipping to Botswana, you can have peace of mind that your belongings are in safe hands and will reach safely.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
