Are import duties charged by Egypt?

Unfortunately, reputable sources disagree on the topic of import duties imposed by Egyptian customs. One source guides that duty exemption is not offered to foreigners, except for those who have diplomatic status or are working for certain international organizations (1). Another source differs, stating that new tax rules allow you to import your household belongings without paying duty.

To be eligible, you must qualify for temporary admission and be working on either government contracts or in the private sector. Customs will require a valid Letter of Guarantee, proving you have deposited enough funds to cover the duties, should you fail to export your belongings when your work contract is finished. You also must show a Work Visa, and this must cover the space of at least three months (2).

What are the paperwork requirements?

The correct documentation for your shipment must be submitted to customs, including a packing list. A separate inventory that lists values for all of your goods is also required, along with the Letter of Guarantee mentioned above (if you wish to obtain duty exemption). Your passport and your Work Permit or Egyptian Residency must be presented as well. The Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill for your shipment(s) is also mandatory documentation (3).

Are import duties charged on your vehicle?

Egypt doesn’t make importing vehicles an affordable prospect, with taxes anywhere between 70 - 170% being imposed by customs (4). You’re also only permitted to import brand new vehicles (defined as having been manufactured in the current year), which have not had any previous owners. Prior authorization to bring your vehicle into Egypt is also necessary (5).

What are the paperwork requirements for your vehicle?

Before processing of your vehicle can be completed, customs will need your Certificate of Origin. Also required is a Non-Sale Certificate, stating that you won’t sell the vehicle while it’s in the country. The vehicle’s purchase invoice and proof of insurance coverage must also be shown. A Certificate of Origin and your Original Bill of Lading will be requested as well (6).

This overview covering the duties and documents mandated by Egyptian customs is far from comprehensive. In order to learn all the applicable requirements for your particular shipments, it’s imperative that you talk to customs for the most up-to-date information.

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!
