Import duties imposed by Ghana

One reputable source states that you can bring your household goods into the country, without paying duty upon them. You’ll need to have purchased them a minimum of six months ago, and not be planning to sell them in Ghana. Your shipment also must enter the country, no later than one year after you arrive. Finally, the destination agent needs to be informed of your shipment’s impending arrival, a minimum of 20 days before it enters port (1).

In contrast, the International Association of Movers only mentions exemption being possible for diplomatic shipments (2). To clear up this issue, it’s best to go directly to the source - by talking with customs.

Import paperwork required by Ghana

Before your shipment will be authorized to proceed into Ghana, you must give customs some paperwork. This includes a Letter of Employment and your Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill. A packing list and separate inventory with values included is also required. A Personal Unaccompanied Baggage Declaration (PUBD Form) is to be filled out, when you arrive at the airport in Ghana. If you don’t submit this form, then steep fines and long delays are the likely outcome. Customs also mandates that you provide receipts for hi-fi appliances and all electrical items in your shipment, if these are less than six months old (3).

Import duties levied on vehicles

Duty exemption only seems to be available for commercial vehicles, not vehicles imported for personal use (4). Therefore, you should be prepared to pay the standard rates - provided your vehicle isn’t more than 10 years old. If it is, then the rate increases as the age of the vehicle increases. For example, while vehicles up to 12 years old only incur an extra 5% charge - vehicles that are 15 years old or more have an additional 50% duty levied upon them (5).

Import paperwork required for your vehicle

Customs will need to have your Original Bill of Lading and the vehicle’s purchase invoice or receipt. The registration and a Certificate of Ownership are also mandatory. Finally, a Non-Sale Certificate confirming you won’t transfer ownership of the vehicle while in the country is required (6).

Bear in mind that additional regulations and filing requirements will be enforced on your shipments. For example, Ghana does not allow right-hand drive vehicles to be imported. You’ll need to obtain this type of detailed information before moving, by speaking with customs directly.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

Here are some pointers on making your international move easier and more manageable.

  • Start packing early, but leave the vital items like your passport and identification documents within reach.
  • Only carry the items that are either not available in Ghana, or those that are too expensive to buy in Ghana. This will significantly reduce your shipment size.
  • Different countries use different electric signals and with them different electric connectors. Find out if Ghana uses the same ones as those in your home country. You don’t want a rude surprise after shipping incompatible appliances miles across oceans.
  • Check the Ghanaian visa requirements and ensure that you qualify to be allowed entry.
  • Identify a moving company that offers the services that you need and find out more about their process and their charges.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

Getting your Ghana International Moving Services from a reputable company that has been in the moving industry is something that will go a long way in making your move easier, safer and faster. Here are reasons why you should get a professional to do the job.

  • Enjoy convenience and peace of mind knowing that you don’t have to worry about the whereabouts of your shipment at any given time. Outsource the headache to us.
  • Avoid the losses that come with losing or damaging your valuables during transit by leaving the responsibility of protecting them to us.
  • Save time and spend it doing more important tasks like finding a good apartment, applying for your Ghanaian driver’s license or applying for a visa.
  • You’ll have access to specialized tools, wrappers and equipment for moving when you work with us.

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!
