Aden is the largest seaport city in Yemen and is host to several oil refineries and petroleum companies belonging to the country. It’s been a very profitable city since the 1970’s and people from around the globe relocate for work to the city each year. When you move to Aden you may see quickly that having a personal car to drive while in the city can be very beneficial. Driving through the city you will see many spectacular historical sites including the Aden Military Museum, the Zoroastrian Temple and the beautiful Aden and Little Aden beaches that are very popular Yemen tourist destinations. In order to move your own car to the city you will need to hire a professional automobile transport company to take care of shipping the car for you.
Professional Automobile Transport to Aden.
When you’re making plans to ship a car overseas one of the first things you will need to do is make a decision on the type of transport that will be used to ship the car. The following are the standard ways to ship a motor vehicle internationally:
- Ro-Ro Shipping- This is usually the most frequent way that individuals, dealerships and manufacturers ship motor vehicles overseas. Ro-Ro is an easy mode of transport, affordable and usually the quickest way by sea to have a car delivered as there are many Ro-Ro ships available for transport. Hundreds of cars, trucks, vans and other vehicles can all be loaded onto one single ship at the same time for delivery to various locations throughout the world. Ships are on a schedule that means automobile owners must have the car scheduled on a date that a ship will be leaving port. If you will need to leave before the car is shipped, there are options to place the car in storage prior to the shipment date. Ro-Ro is a transport method that is just for motor vehicles, so you will not be able to load anything inside of the car during shipment.
- Container Shipping- If you need to load any personal items or household goods into your car during transport the best option will be to utilize a shipping container for transportation to Aden. Shipping containers, or enclosed automobile transport, make relocating overseas a simple process as many things can be loaded into the container. You will need to provide customs a complete packing list that includes all items that are loaded inside of the container whether large or small in detail.
- Air Cargo Shipping- Most people will use sea ships to transport motor vehicles internationally, but if you have a highly expensive automobile or valuable personal items that need to be shipped very fast, then shipping by air cargo is a preferred method. While it is usually expensive to ship by air, it is a great resource to use when you need to have your valuable items delivered quickly.
Customs Laws in Aden.
As you are making preparations to have a motor vehicle you will need to get some paperwork for customs in Yemen together. Paperwork will include:
- Car Title and registration.
- Driver’s License.
- Certificate of origin.
- Manufacturers date certificate.
- Bill of Lading or Airway Bill.
- Customs Deal card if the car is a company car.
- Tax exemption letter if you are a diplomat from the Yemen Ministry of Industry and Trade.
You may want to contact the Embassy of the Republic of Yemen in Washington, DC for more information pertaining to necessary paperwork and customs laws for the country of Yemen.
