Moving To Botswana

🇧🇼 Botswana, (BW)

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.

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).

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.

  • Contact the Botswana Embassy in the US so that you may know the required paperwork and to familiarize yourself with the various regulations.

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.

How to find the best international moving company

The following are some factors that you should consider when searching for the best international mover:

  • Experience: Is the company familiar with the regulations and do they have sufficient experience in providing Botswana International Moving Services?
  • Reliability: Can the mover deliver the goods in the time stated and ensure that the goods are not harmed or that they do not lose their value while in their possession?
  • Facilities: Does the moving company have the necessary facilities to store and handle your belongings in the proper way?
  • Ratings: What is the company’s performance? What do previous clients or survey reports reveal about them?
  • Compliance: Is the mover compliant with the shipping rules and does it possess the relevant certificates and licenses?

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!
