Chad International Moving Services

Although moving to a new home can be challenging, an overseas move is a similar but totally different experience. In addition to the normal moving challenges like moving pets to a new environment, leaving old friends and having to make new ones, an international move will require you to deal with immigration, customs, new electrical signals for home appliances and sometimes even a new language.

Duties when shipping your household items to Chad

If youโ€™ve owned and used your household belongings for at least the last six months - and lived outside of Chad for the last 12 months - then you can import your shipment free of any duty. If you do obtain duty exemption, then youโ€™re required to keep the items in your possession during your stay (you arenโ€™t even permitted to let others borrow them).

You also must turn in all paperwork pertaining to your shipment, a full 2 weeks before your goods arrive. Last but not least, a Certificate of Free Entry must be obtained from the head customs office in Chad (1).

Documents when shipping your household items to Chad

Various forms and paperwork is required, when importing goods into the country. Youโ€™ll need a Move Certificate (Certificat de Demenagement), and this can be obtained from either the local police station or city hall in the municipality where youโ€™ll be living. Your Resident Permit, Work Permit or a Letter of Employment are also required.

Customs will also need to see your Non-Sale Certificate, verifying that you wonโ€™t sell your belongings inside Chadโ€™s borders. A full packing list and a separate inventory should also be provided. Be sure to sign and date this inventory, include monetary values on it and write it out in French (2).

Duties when shipping your vehicle to Chad

If youโ€™ll be importing your used vehicle into the country, you wonโ€™t be required to pay any duty. Import duties are only levied on new vehicles - which makes the import process significantly more affordable for most people. One reputable source does mention import tax, however. Whether this is a separate charge isnโ€™t clear - so confirm what fees will apply to your shipment by speaking with customs (3).

Regulations when shipping your vehicle to Chad

Though used vehicles have the typical import duty waived, only vehicles less than 3 years old can be brought into Chad. Also, your Original Bill of Lading is required to list the chassis and engine numbers, make, model, year and engine volume for your vehicle (4).

Documents when shipping your vehicle to Chad

Before customs will authorize your vehicle for entry, you must submit some paperwork. This includes your driverโ€™s license, and the vehicleโ€™s title and registration. The Bill of Sale or purchase invoice are also needed. Your Social Security card and a Certificate of Non-Sale (verifying you wonโ€™t sell the vehicle within Chad) are mandatory as well. If the vehicle youโ€™ll be importing is new, then an Import License must also be provided. Finally, if a third-party will be handling the clearance process for you - then a valid Power of Attorney is required (5).

Additional paperwork and regulations may be pertinent - so confirm all the necessary requirements for both your household goods and vehicle with customs.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

We know that moving overseas is never easy so we have compiled a list of tips that will help make your life easier as you plan that move. Here they are:

  • Donโ€™t fill your luggage with items that you donโ€™t need. Only carry the items that you canโ€™t do without and those that canโ€™t be bought in Chad.
  • Start working on the immigration documents early. Some documents will take days or weeks before you are cleared and this could easily end up causing delays if you donโ€™t leave sufficient time for them.
  • Research on visa requirements and customs restrictions to avoid unpleasant surprises at border control.
  • Pick a moving company that offers all the Chad International Moving Services that you require within your budget.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

There are two ways you can go about relocating to a new county. There is the DIY route which while cheaper will require much more from you. Then there is the professional way which may cost more but offers greater peace of mind. Hereโ€™s why:

  • Experience: Professional moving companies have done hundreds of moves in the past so they are armed with the necessary experience to handle the entire process.
  • Connections: In the years they have been in business, moving companies have built good relationships with local authorities in both countries hence they are best placed to fix any problems that might arise.
  • Storage Facilities: Should your shipment arrive in Chad before you, moving companies will store it in secure warehouses as they await your arrival.
  • Equipment: From loading appliances to trucks to packing supplies for fragile items, shipping companies have invested in the right equipment for the job.

How to find the best international moving company

With all that said, itโ€™s important to note that you will only be able to get these benefits when you choose the right company. Hereโ€™s how to go about that:

  1. Talk to friends who have had to move to a new country in the past or read company reviews on websites like Yelp.
  2. Ask about their certifications. A good company should be licensed and insured.
  3. Get a quote to know exactly what you will be getting and roughly how much it will cost.
