Namibia International Moving Services

As the world becomes a global village, international moving services are now in high demand. However, it is not a feat for the faint-hearted and many people have realized how frustrating it can be to try do it on your own. With stringent immigration rules in many countries, unpredictable weather patterns among many other challenges, moving has become a task best handled by professional international movers. A-1 Auto Transport has over the last two decades been able to serve millions of customers across the globe.

How Much Does It Cost to Move to Namibia?

The cost of moving internationally to Namibia can range anywhere from $2,000-$12,000 depending on a variety of factors such as the size of move, total distance, route, transportation method, and current market trends.

Namibia is a country in the southwestern part of Africa. If you want to move your things to the country from the United States and have a 2-bedroom, you might pay between $4,000 and $10,600. It will be more if it is a 4-bedroom home you are moving.

The cost of moving your household goods to Namibia varies because of the different things that affect shipping costs. Factors that influence the shipping cost include the distance to the destination and the shipping method.

The Distance to the Destination

The distance to the destination you have in mind will influence the shipping cost.

Distance is the first consideration made by a moving company when calculating what the customer will pay for shipping. The general rule is that the longer the distance, the more you will pay for shipping.

For example, moving your household goods from the United States to Namibia will be more expensive than moving them to Argentina because Argentina is closer to the United States than Namibia.

Transport Method

Shipping costs are determined by the company's method of transportation.

There are different methods used to transport household goods. The method comes with different moving rates because of the resources required. Air transport is a quick way to move your household things, but it is the most expensive method. Shipments by sea, on the other hand, will cost less.

Keep in mind that the shipping methods come with different shipping times, so if you want your things transported in a hurry, you will pay more.

Overseas Relocation Services Namibia

Will your household goods be subject to import duties?

One well-informed source states that shipments of household belongings can be brought into Namibia without paying duty. To receive this exemption, you must have purchased these items at least 12 months ago, and personally used them over this time. You also must have been residing outside of the country for a minimum of the last 12 months. To have duty waived, the shipment should enter port no later than six months after you relocate to Namibia. Finally, you aren’t authorized to sell, lend out to others or get rid of any duty-free goods (1).

The trustworthy International Association of Movers isn’t as clear on this point, not specifically stating that foreigners can have duty waived on used household goods. They do mention that import tax exemption must be extended to you, and if it is not - then the standard tax rate is 16.5%. Typical import duty of 20% is added to this figure (2).

Though it appears likely that if you follow the guidelines laid out above, customs will waive import duties and taxes - it’s best that you confirm this information directly.

Will your household goods require certain paperwork?

You must file your passport, packing list and a comprehensive inventory with customs. This inventory must include monetary values, listed in whatever type of currency is used in the shipment’s nation of origin. A couple of specific forms are also required, which are the P1.160 and NA 304. Customs should also be provided with your Residence Permit and/or a valid Work Permit. To have import duty waived for your shipment, a letter of exemption on duties and value-added tax is to be shown. You must request this letter from Namibia’s Ministry of Finance (3).

Will your vehicle be subject to import duties?

Here again reputable sources appear to deviate, with the International Association of Movers asserting that duty-free import is available. The requirement to receive this exemption is having purchased the vehicle a minimum of 12 months before shipping it to Namibia. Having personally used it during this year of ownership is also a prerequisite for duty-free importation. Your family may only bring in a single vehicle without paying duty. An application for tax exemption is to be sent to the Ministry of Finance (4).

Another solid source disagrees, holding that you can only obtain duty exemption, if you’re a client of an international organization which has the required technical agreement with Namibia’s government. If you don’t meet this criteria, then an import duty of 34% will be levied on the vehicle. A value-added tax in the amount of 16.5% will also be incurred, along with Ad Valorem ranging from 0.2% to 9%.

However, this sources goes on to say, that the taxes you pay during importation are refundable. To qualify for a refund, you must take the vehicle with you when moving away (5). Whether this refund includes both duties and taxes is murky, and it’s possible that only the taxes will be returned to you. Since it isn’t apparent which source is correct (along with some other details), you ought to speak with customs to learn more.

International Moving Namibia

Will your vehicle require certain paperwork?

A valid Import Permit is to be submitted to customs, plus a purchase receipt (or other documents showing the vehicle’s value). Form NA 304 (or possibly Form NA 304/A) is also required, as well as your Original Bill of Lading (6). The title and registration must be shown, in addition to your driver’s license. Proof of international insurance coverage and a minimum of two years of ownership are also mandatory (though one year may suffice according to IAM) (7).

Before shipping off your valuable household goods and vehicle to Namibia, it’s judicious to first talk with customs. They can inform you about any changes to their import regulations, and provide all of the additional details not covered here.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

  • Make your international move easier by preparing all necessary travel documents. Have them with you before departure.
  • Get a professional international moving company: They will assist you in packing your luggage and getting the necessary documents.
  • Get your housing ready at your destination: With the assistance of the professional, get a house for you at the preferred location and probably a store for your luggage.

How to find the best international moving company

The right moving company should be available through their offices and agents in Namibia and in the main cities and towns in the countries under which they operate. As part of their Namibia International Moving Services, they should be able to provide storage facilities for all your items. It also helps if they have been in the moving industry for a number of years. Additionally, a reputable company should help you get the best cover from a reputable insurance company in Namibia and a temporary cover for you once you get to your new destination.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
