The duties levied on shipments of household items

Prior to looking at the import duties required by Nigeria, the Level 3 Travel Advisory issued by the U.S. Department of State should be mentioned. The cited justifications for this warning are the terrorism, piracy, civil unrest and crime present within the country. While this advisory level carries the admonition that you reconsider traveling to Nigeria - you’re advised to completely avoid the northern Adamawa, Yobe and Borno States (1).

Obtaining Duty Exemption

If you’re aware of the dangers and have decided to relocate to Nigeria anyway, then you’re likely wondering about the duties imposed by customs. Though duty exemption isn’t certain, most of the time you can have this charge waived - if you meet certain conditions.

Customs requires you to have purchased your goods at least six months ago, and to have personally used them during this time. They also stipulate that you intend to keep using them in your household, and don’t plan to sell them within Nigeria (2).

Additional Requirements

Duty-free import also requires that you bring in any shipments no later than two months after moving into the country. Customs also mandates that you obtain a Residence Permit before entering the country. All of the paperwork for your shipment must be in the destination agent’s hands, a minimum of 15 days before your goods reach port (3).

The paperwork necessary for household items

In order to authorize your shipment for entry, customs must receive your passport, visa, Certificate of Residence Change and Work Permit. A Residence Permit, Form Sale 48 and full inventory are also required. Clean reports of both inspection and finding are necessary as well, along with a PUBD Form and authorization letter (4).

The Federal Inland Revenue within the country must also issue you a tax identification number, which you must show to customs during clearance. A packing list (which is separate from your valued inventory) and Letter of Employment or Certificate of Transfer must be presented as well. If any portion of your shipment is packed in wooden crates, then a Certificate of Fumigation is also mandatory (5).

The duties levied on shipments of vehicles

Anticipate paying import duties on your vehicle, as it doesn’t appear that exemption is available. Customs also has various regulations governing importation, including the requirement that all vehicles be manufactured less than eight years ago. It’s also critical that your Original Bill of Lading list the engine number, chassis number, model and manufacturer. If these details aren’t included on your OBL, then customs won’t permit your vehicle to enter Nigeria.

When figuring the fees for importation, customs looks at the vehicle’s value. A sliding scale applies, which starts at 30% duty for vehicles worth $9,000 or less. This rate scale continues rising, going up to a maximum of 100% duty for vehicles valued over $27,200. You should know that a value-added tax (VAT) is also levied by customs, along with a surcharge of 7% (6).

The paperwork necessary for vehicles

Shipping a vehicle to Nigeria entails certain paperwork, including proof of insurance coverage and the purchase receipt for the vehicle. A packing list for the vehicle shipment, your passport and a Certificate of Value and Origin are also required (7). You may also need a CC3 Form, which has been endorsed by both the main office of customs and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (8). However, this document may only be required for diplomats who wish to import a vehicle.

The vehicle’s title and registration, log book and Original Bill of Lading are all necessary as well. The OBL must list the vehicle’s engine number, chassis number, manufacturer and model (this information should be on your included inventory as well). Finally, when importing a used vehicle - a certificate confirming that it’s roadworthy is mandatory documentation (9).

This discussion about the process involved when importing personal belongings into Nigeria, will give you an excellent idea of what to expect. However, additional rules, documents and charges may apply. Consequently, it’s a good idea to talk over your impending move with customs. This will ensure that you don’t miss any key details needed for a seamless clearance of your shipments.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

  • Assemble everything at one collection point: This will save time and the effort of having to pick from different locations.
  • Prepare all documents required to travel: Your professional mover should guide you on what you need and where to obtain it.
  • Get a professional international mover: This is the person who will walk you through to your destination. Get a legitimate company and as much as possible, run away from quacks and brokers.
  • Get insurance cover for you and your valuables from a reputable insurer. The insurance should be comprehensive and correctly detailed to avoid surprises.

How to find the best international moving company

  • A good international moving company is certified by the registrar and has valid permits for the specific countries under which they do business.
  • The company should have been in the international moving business with experience of a reasonable number of years. Get to find their customer reviews and see how experienced and competent they are.
  • The mover should have presence in the places of operation with offices and agents in place. They should be able to provide storage for your goods once you get to your new destination.

Satisfied Customers

“Hello:Many thanks for delivering my truck in very good time. Your driver brought the Chevy S-10 to my house this morning. And I did get a call to confirm a delivery. It arrived in very good shape, and your driver was friendly. Nice job, folks. I'd use you again, as well as recommend you to others. ”

“Nicole: Our experience with A-1 Auto Transport could not have gone more smoothly. To make things even better, the car shipping quote you gave was cheaper than all other price quotes I received. Thanks for the great customer service and quick vehicle shipping! The communication via email was very helpful. We received immediate feedback when we had questions. We changed our pick-up location just 2 days before the shipment, and the change did not affect the degree of professionalism we received; but, rather, the change was implemented smoothly and acknowledged by email. We did not use the GPS tracking service only because we were on the road at the same time our vehicle shipment was on the road. We would have used it otherwise. Yes, we would use your service again and will highly recommend your company to others. Sincerely, Kimberly”

“Moving to Oregon was one of the most stressful experiences I ever went through. The moving company was a pain to find and a bigger pain to work with. They arrived late and took forever to load my belongings. The only thing that went well was A1 Auto Transport, the team I called to transport my car. The contrast between them and the other guys was incredible. Joe was very polite and well mannered. He listened to my request carefully then offered several options for me to choose from. He indicated the cheapest would be using an open carrier, to which I agreed wholeheartedly. He scheduled for one of his trucks to arrive 2 days later, between 2 pm and 5 pm. It arrived at around 4 pm at the nearby supermarket parking lot that we set as a meeting point. The roads near my home would never allow a truck of that size to fit in, so we agreed to meet there. I sent my son with the car to take care of everything, since I was busy with the moving company. He returned an hour later saying everything went smoothly and he really liked the driver. Four days later, while we were unpacking, the truck also arrived in Oregon with our car. The driver was professional, always smiling and patient enough to wait while we inspected the vehicle. There was nothing to report, not a scratch on it, so we ended our transaction well. I’m happy to recommend A1 Auto Transport to everyone and wish more companies would be like it.”

“If you’re trying to get a car moved, you’re more likely to encounter brokers than auto transporters. They get you in touch with the actual people who move your car. But every so often, you stumble directly over an auto transport company, and even rarer, you find a great one! I called Joe last spring to transport a newly bought car to Oklahoma. He was calm, patient, and gave me good answers. I’m glad everything worked out. He called regularly to updated me on the transport. The pickup and delivery was within schedule, and there were no issues to mention. The truck driver too was a pleasure to work with.”

“A1 Auto Transport is a very customer centered company. They spare no effort for their clients. I called them a couple months ago to pick up my car from Wyoming and deliver it in Washington. Joe was very reassuring and patient. He listened to my every request and answered all my questions. When I asked for the pickup to happen between 1 and 3 pm during a weekday, since I was caught up in work otherwise, he gave it some thought, told me to wait a few minutes while he checked if it was possible, then found a way and made it happen. Excellent!! If you’re looking for a smooth, professional, service to ship your car, then A1 Auto Transport is what you’re looking for.”
