As with international imports, you are required to pay the duties and tariffs before the vehicle can be driven and registered in Comoros. There is a 5% to about 20% duty on car import that is evaluated on the basis of the vehicle’s value. Additionally, there is 1% to 25% VAT or consumption tax.

Freight shipment methods.
Though there are plenty of methods to ship your car from USA to Comoros, air shipping is the fastest, but the prohibitive costs tend to marginalize it. That is why Roll-on/Roll-Off shipping and Container shipments are the mainstays as cargo for sea faring freight ships.
Roll-on/Roll-Off: It is the most affordable way to relocate your vehicle to Adda-Doueni. You are only required to pay for the amount of space that your vehicle occupies. Thus, it turns out to be the most affordable method. But you cannot keep any personal possessions inside the vehicle and have to remove the air conditioning gas, disable all car alarms. It is imperative to leave only 1/4th tank of fuel so that the vehicle can be driven on and off the ship’s deck with ease.
Container shipment: You have the option of choosing a 20 feet or 40 feet containers. As this is more exclusive, you can put your vehicle and the other personal items that need to be shipped within the same container. This is method is good if you are shipping an expensive vehicle as a higher layer of security is provided.
