Are import duties charged by Gambia?

Though duty usually applies when importing goods into the country, you can be exempted from these fees. You must have owned and personally used your household items for at least six months. Having lived outside of Gambia for a minimum of the last 12 months is also required. Your shipment must arrive no later than six months after you enter the country. Customs also mandates that you not transfer ownership, lend out or get rid of these goods inside of Gambia.

Even if you do successfully obtain duty exemption by following all the conditions listed above - some fees do apply. An Ecowas tax of 0.55% and a processing fee of 1.5% are charged by customs (1).

Are certain documents required by Gambia?

You will need to have your passport and Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill. A Non-Sale Certificate verifying that you wonโ€™t sell your household belongings within Gambia is also required. A comprehensive inventory with receipts attached for any new electrical goods or appliances is mandatory as well. Customs will ask to see your Work Permit, Residence Permit and/or Letter of Employment too. A packing list and your passport round out the list (2).

Are import duties charged on your vehicle?

No mention of duty exemption is made by the reputable sources consulted - so expect to pay the standard rate on your vehicle. According to the International Association of Movers, a 35% revenue tax and 18% duty on vehicle imports will be charged. An additional 10% sales tax, 1.5% processing fee and a 0.05% ECOWAS tax also apply (3).

Are certain documents required for your vehicle?

When shipping your vehicle to Gambia, many of the same documents necessary for your household goods are required. These include a Non-Sale Certificate and Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill. Your Work Permit, Residence Permit and/or Letter of Employment are also necessary once again. The vehicleโ€™s registration and purchase invoice must be provided as well (4).

Customs procedures have a tendency to change, and the above list of paperwork and regulations isnโ€™t comprehensive. To avoid problems or added fees when shipping your goods to Gambia, you should always speak to customs beforehand.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

Here are a number of tips to make the move easier:

  • Start looking for immigration documents early. Some of them might take days before they get approval and this could result in delays.
  • Only carry the things you canโ€™t find in Gambia. Donโ€™t waste space shipping things that are available in Gambia.
  • Find out if you will be able to use your appliances in Gambia. Different countries use different electrical signals so check if your home country uses the same one as Gambia.
  • Check if you meet all visa requirements for entering Gambia and start preparing the documents early.
  • Choose a moving company that meets your needs within your budget and ask about their process.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

Gambia International Moving Services can really help make moving easy for you. Letโ€™s take a look at why you should go for a moving company as opposed to doing everything yourself.

  • Moving accidents can be expensive. What better way to avoid them than by having someone else handle the process? Any accidents will be their responsibility.
  • When you work with a professional moving company, you get to save time that can be spent doing other tasks.
  • Professional moving companies have the tools and equipment necessary to pack, load and transport even the bulkiest of home appliances.

How to find the best international moving company

The internet is full of moving companies that will claim to offer the best Gambia International Moving Services. However, you should not take these claims at face value. Hereโ€™s how to pick a moving company that wonโ€™t disappoint:

  1. If you have friends who have made an international move in the past, ask them for recommendations. If you donโ€™t have such friends, read online reviews written by past customers who have experienced the companyโ€™s services.
  2. Ask if the company has a US DOT number and search for it here to make sure that you are getting services from a licensed company.
  3. Ask about their cargo insurance policy and how they handle claims.
  4. Finally, ask how long they have been in business. Generally, an experienced company is more reliable than companies that are new in the industry.
