Household belongings and import duty

In 2014 Kiribati took the bold step of removing all import duties or tariffs for goods entering the country. Kiribati’s import duties were replaced with excise tax and value-added tax (VAT) instead, and the rates for these vary (1). While the replacement of duties with taxes applies to the import of commercial goods – it seems to pertain to all personal belongings as well. Unfortunately, there isn’t much information concerning how much tax you’ll pay, for shipments of household items. However, it’s clear that excise tax and VAT typically apply.

That said, it appears that these taxes can be waived on up to $200 worth of personal goods. You’re also permitted to include up to 250 grams of tobacco (or a total of 200 cigarettes or less) and 2.25 liters of alcohol or 4 liters of wine in your luggage. Whether these count towards the allowable $200 value limit of personal goods isn’t clear – though it seems unlikely (2).

Since these regulations only cover small quantities of goods in your personal baggage, they don’t inform you about the charges for full shipments of household items. Therefore, if you’re planning to relocate to Kiribati and bring your belongings with you, you’ll need to contact customs for more information.

Household belongings and import documents

There currently isn’t any information available from reputable sources, concerning the paperwork you’ll need to ship household belongings to Kiribati. For this reason, you’re once again advised to speak with customs, to discover what documents they require during the clearance process.

Vehicles and import duty

Presumably the policy removing all import duties applies to personal vehicles as well. Whether you will pay excise tax and VAT isn’t known, though the chances are good. Consult customs on this point, as they should be able to provide details about the charges your vehicle shipment will face. In addition, be aware that you’ll need to import a right-hand drive vehicle, since Kiribati is a country that drives on the left side of the road (3).

Vehicles and import documents

If you’ll be shipping a vehicle to Kiribati, be prepared to show the purchase receipt and your passport. The Original Bill of Lading for the vehicle shipment is also certainly required. The vehicle registration and an Import Permit may be necessary as well (4). Additional paperwork could also be mandatory, but once again there’s a dearth of information. This means that the only viable option is to speak directly with customs about your shipment.

How do you make your international move easier?

You will need to have your items packed in the best way possible by a professional who ensures that you have no breakages and that space is maximally utilized.

Of importance also are the shipping documents that you need to have for you to move all valuables from your current location to your new destination. These are documents like import permit, a passport, visa application, purchase invoice and all other registration paperwork.

Our Kiribati International Moving Services will factor in all these requirements and we will take you through the process and advise you accordingly. This will ensure that you plan for all details, including your finances, well in advance thus avoiding last minute surprises.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

Moving from one state or town to another is a bit easier with a good moving company. However, moving internationally comes with its peculiar challenges. Here, the country of destination logistics comes into play; you need guidance on Visa application process and the international shipping requirements that must be followed to avoid frustrations and penalties. That is why you need a reliable and tested partner like A-1 Auto Transport services who will walk with you all the way. We have the best shipping equipment for all sizes and quantities; we ensure that you, your loved ones, and your belongings are covered and thus you have no worries.

How to find the best international moving company

There are a few parameters that a moving company must meet for it to be found worthy. A good company should be clear on its service costs and no hidden charges.  It can be very frustrating when you have spent to the last penny and someone pulls some extra charges. This is why you need to make that clear before you begin the process. A good international moving company must have the requisite permits to transact business both within and in the destination country and therefore should provide you with a certificate of doing business in both. A suitable mover must have presence in the countries involved and have contacts in countries all over the world; they should show proof of having done business in those countries. Choosing the right company will make the process hassle-free and assure you of safe delivery at the most competitive rate. With our Kiribati International Moving Services, you can rest assured that everything is in order.

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!
