Egypt International Moving Services

When the time comes to make an international move, you need someone who will assure you of a stress-free and safe delivery. You do not want to have it rough getting to move what you value. International moving is quite challenging due to the legalities involved. That is why you need a professional. Someone who will walk with you until your destination. A-1 Auto Transport is your preferred partner.

How Much Does It Cost to Move to Egypt?

The cost of moving internationally to Egypt 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.

Relocating to Egypt with one to two bedrooms can cost between $4,500 and $10,000. Your transfer price can be affected by several factors, and you can even budget your move based on these factors. In calculating your transfer costs, you include hauling costs, taxes and duty fees, and moving insurance. You may be able to lower the price range by taking advantage of your knowledge of these factors.

Hauling Costs

Packing and unpacking costs can be included in moving costs. The mode of transport for your overseas move can also be included. Moving your items with a mover saves you time and effort, as well as helps to protect your items. New methods for saving on relocation costs include shared spacing and hauling. These methods can be both safe and cost-effective with the right coordination.

Taxes and Duty Fees

Taxes and duties are legal fees that must be paid when you move abroad. By paying the fees, you can ensure your move will not be delayed by red tape and help to expedite the process. Moving your belongings abroad may incur severe penalties if you do not follow these legal requirements. Even just paying the duty fees for your belongings may cost you more than a thousand dollars. If you need legal assistance in preparing these documents, you may also need to consult a lawyer. For the most part, the costs associated with moving household items are not as high as moving other items.

Moving Insurance

Insurance may come at a cost depending on the type of coverage and the transfer method. Additionally, your moving insurance may add to the total cost of your move.

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.

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.
