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.

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.

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.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

Professional moving companies will provide Libya International Moving Services that will help reduce the stress that comes with overseas moves. Although it can be tempting to try and save some money by managing the move yourself, hiring a professional moving company is much more beneficial to you. Here’s why you should go with a professional moving company:

  • Their experience in the industry has taught them lessons and best practices for doing most of the things that you will need to do in your move. They will know how to avoid pitfalls along the way.
  • When you know that your move is being handled by a professional, you will have peace of mind and at the same time, you will free up time to focus on other things.
  • Moving companies are insured against losses and damages that could happen during transit.

How to find the best international moving company

There are many options to choose from when you search online for a company that offers Libya International Moving Services. Here are some things that you should look out for when choosing a company:

  1. Ask for a US DOT number and check it here to know if they are licensed to operate moving services.
  2. Read past customer testimonials to know what to expect from the company.
  3. Ask if your cargo will be insured in the period when it will be in their hands. A company that doesn’t have insurance is a sign of trouble.

Satisfied Customers

“I’m so glad I met you Joe!! A truly fortunate experience. Having to transport a car to Minnesota, I was stunned to see the company, who was supposed to take care of it, just vanish. I couldn’t reach them anymore, like they went bankrupt overnight. However, I was lucky enough to not pay anything, so I simply researched some more until I found A1 Auto Transport. Joe answered my call the first time and we soon agreed on a date and a quote. Unfortunately, I got caught up in work and forgot about it. The order was not confirmed, so Joe must’ve thought I changed my mind. I called him the next day and arranged for a new date. This time, I made a note on my phone and it went well. I replied to his email this time, and the driver arrived at a parking lot down the street on time, as promised. The driver was nice enough to not mention my previous mistake. He delivered my car in just 3 days. Upon careful inspection, there were no scratches or damage done to it during transport. Joe was there along with the driver and they both waited patiently until I was satisfied. Thanks!”

“I am VERY PLEASED with the shipment for our 1979 Camaro. The vehicle arrived when they said, they called me with a progress report when they crossed the Wisconsin/Illinois border, and then again when they were about 15 minutes from the drop off location. The driver and his co-driver were very pleasant people. I could not have asked for nicer people to transport "our new baby". Thank you A1 for all your above and beyond efforts. You do know your job, and you do it well. This has made my day, week, month, year........... Again, thank you.”

“Our car was delivered here in New York just eight days after it was picked up in Palo Alto, California. This is its second transcontinental trip with A-1 and I think you've done a terrific job. Thank you, Howard Epstein, NYC”

“How to start? A1 Auto Transport is a blessing! Joe is a gentleman! A couple days ago, I was getting ready to move to Wyoming. I looked everywhere for a good auto transport company, but their reviews were just terrible. It felt like I was going nowhere and would be stuck driving the car myself or having to sell it. Finally and thankfully, I came across A1 Auto Transport. Most reviews were very positive, so I took a chance on them. Joe spent half an hour explaining the whole shipping process, to the point where I truly understood what to expect and what I needed to do. He covered the legal aspects and the quotes, and whenever I didn’t understand something, he took the time to explain and clarify it. On a Wednesday, the truck arrived at a location nearby (where it would fit), and I sent my car on its way. The driver inspected it and took several photographs. He made it feel like standard procedure, so I simply observed. He took note of the eventual dents and scratches, in case I’d try to sue the company for damages he didn’t cause (not that I planned to). The time estimate for my vehicle’s arrival was 7 to 10 days. It arrived on the 8th in the exact same condition it left. Thank you A1 Auto Transport for a job well done! You’ve kept your promise, and I couldn’t be happier. If anybody I know ever needs to ship a car, I’ll refer you immediately, and I hope this review helps you get many more clients.”

“Hey Michelle !!!! My car arrived yesterday (Saturday) at about noon. Hey lady, that's less than 48 hrs. You're the greatest....A1 is the greatest...I think I love you...Yahoo !!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. Sincerely, Rocky' Giordani (the guy with the red Dodge Charger)”
