What import duties does Djibouti charge?

If you were hoping to receive duty exemption for your household belongings, then you’ll be disappointed. Even used items have import duty levied upon them, and no exemptions are available. You also have to follow certain regulations, such as bringing your shipment into Djibouti no later than six months after moving there. You aren’t permitted to lend to others, sell or get rid of any belongings while in the country either. Finally, customs mandates that you file all paperwork a minimum of 15 days before your shipment enters port (1).

Document Require For Djibouti Customs

What documents does Djibouti require?

Your shipment of household goods must be processed by customs, and they’ll need some paperwork to do so. Your passport and visa are required, as well as a full packing list. A separate comprehensive inventory that includes monetary values for all of your items, must also be provided.

If needed in your situation, you must show your Residency Permit and a Letter of Employment (if working for a new company in Djibouti). If you’ll be staying with your current company instead - and are only transferring locations - then a Letter of Transfer must be filed with customs. Finally, documentation showing you’ve been vaccinated for yellow fever is necessary, along with your Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill (2).

What import duties does Djibouti charge for your vehicle?

Unfortunately, the reputable sources consulted didn’t have any information available, regarding import duties for your vehicle (3). For this reason, you should contact customs to discuss this issue, and to determine what fees will be levied on your vehicle shipment.

What documents does Djibouti require for your vehicle?

You’ll need to submit your packing list and the Original Bill of Lading for your shipment. A Certificate of Origin is also required, along with a purchase receipt or invoice (that states the price). A letter to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs should also be supplied, and presumably this will either by a copy or on file with that department. The Ministry of Finance also must sign this document (4).

Customs regulations and requirements are subject to change, and the above list of paperwork and fees isn’t comprehensive. To know for sure what you’ll need in order to bring your household goods and vehicle into Djibouti, it’s best to speak with customs directly.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

  • Packing: With the assistance of a professional mover, ensure that all your valuables are reduced to smaller parts, which are easily manageable.
  • Prepare all your documents in advance: Moving to Djibouti requires that you have certain documents with you that you will be required to present at the country’s point of entry.
  • Hire a moving company: A professional will simplify things for you. Remember they have offered Djibouti International Moving Services for a while and they know every detail.
A Professional Moving Company When Relocating Overseas

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

You need someone to show you how and where to get the documents that are required. A professional will have the right moving equipment for whatever quantity you are carrying with you. They will also help you get an insurance cover, for you and your valuables. This is to ensure that you are fully covered and therefore do not incur losses in case of an accident. Hiring a professional is a way of transferring risk to someone else.

How to find the best international moving company

A good International moving company should have a valid certificate and permit to operate in the countries under their coverage. A company in this business should have sufficient experience and years of operation. The more the years of operation a company has, the more their experience. As part of their Djibouti International Moving Services, a reputable firm should provide a comprehensive insurance cover that takes care of your goods while in transit.

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!
