Import duties charged by Libyan customs

How much you’ll pay to bring your household goods into Libya isn’t entirely clear. One source asserts that failure to present the original documentation required (not copies), means you’ll have to provide a refundable deposit amounting to 10% of the shipment’s CIF value. This implies that duty-free import is available, as long as you meet the paperwork requirements (1).

Other reputable sources aren’t nearly as definitive, but seem to indicate that this 10% comes in the form of non-refundable duties (2). To clear up this confusion, it’s best to talk with Libyan customs.

Relocation Moving Co

Paperwork required by Libyan customs

While customs is processing your shipment, they will need to see some specific documentation. You must present your Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill, along with a valid letter of employment. You also need to show your Work Permit and/or entrance visa. A statistics code from your employer within the country is required as well, together with a full packing list (3).

Import duties for vehicles

The duty rate charged for long-term vehicle imports isn’t specified, and it’s possible that exemption may be available (4). For temporary imports, you’ll need to deposit 25% of the vehicle’s value. This will be refunded when you export the vehicle back out of Libya, upon leaving the country (5).

Paperwork required for vehicles

Before your vehicle can enter Libya, you must give customs the purchase invoice. Your Original Bill of Lading is also required (6). The vehicle’s title and registration are also needed, as well as a letter of employment. A valid Import Permit issued by the Ministry of External Affairs is mandatory, and this must be obtained prior to importing the vehicle. A log book to verify when you purchased the vehicle is also required, along with proof of insurance coverage (7).

Customs regulations have a tendency to change regularly, and this overview also isn’t comprehensive. This means it’s a good idea, to speak with them before shipping your goods to Libya.

Packing To Move Internationally Libya

Tips on how to make your international move easier

Moving is never easy. Even if you are moving to an apartment a few blocks down the street, there are a good number of challenges that you will have to overcome. International moves have all these challenges, and some more. Here are some tips to help make your life easier:

  • Notify your service providers early that you will be leaving. This includes utility companies, subscriptions that you have and your landlord.
  • Have a checklist of the things that you will need to do before moving. This helps you track progress and ensure that you don’t forget some items.
  • Let your bank know that you will be moving so that they can expect some activity from a new country.
  • Take only the things that you will need for your stay in Libya. You can donate the rest of them or sell them on eBay or Craigslist.
  • Start working on your immigration requirements Some approvals will take time and this could end up in delays.

How to find the best international moving company

  1. Ask for a US DOT number and check it here to know if they are licensed to operate moving services.

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!
