Car Shipping Arawa 

Arawa is the capital of Bougainville in Papua New Guinea. It is the largest town in the region. Most of the town was destroyed in the 90's during the Bougainville Civil War but has since then been rebuilt and is a vital town today.

If you want to bring your personal vehicle over to get around while in Papua New Guinea, you may find that shipping your vehicle is not an easy thing to do. There are so many different procedures to follow, clearances to get and duties to pay that you may get confused. You have certain rules at the U.S. Customs as well as rules at the Papua New Guinea Customs Department. A1 Auto Transport Service can assist you with their 20+ years of experience with international shipping. They can provide services from the door of your home to the delivery of your vehicle. Papua New Guinea is located in the tropical zone so the humidity is very high and rainfall is abundant so this can be hard on your vehicle when it comes to maintaining it while there.

When shipping to Arawa, you will need to ship to Port Moresby, the closest port accepting imports from the United States. There are various tests and regulations that must be followed with the environmental team at customs. In order to clear

the port authorities, you will need to have the following documentation on hand:

  • Original vehicle registration.
  • Purchase receipt for your vehicle.
  • Insurance proof.
  • Passport.
  • Title to the vehicle.
  • Driver's License.

Customs Duty Exemption Eligibility.

There are regulations in place at Papua New Guinea which allows for certain individuals to be exempt from customs duties and excise taxes. In order to qualify for this exemption, the following documents need to be shown:

  • Residential permit to stay for more than one year.
  • The vehicle has been owned by you for more than twelve months.
  • Proof of ownership of the vehicle.
  • Inspections are all passed and have been evaluated.
  • Roadworthiness certificate has been issued.

All shipments are always done by the Roll On/ Roll Off or container shipping. If you want to import an expensive and valuable vehicle, you will need to use the container shipping method. This method of shipping gives your vehicle an extra layer of security as nothing can damage it in the container. Roll On/ Roll Off shipping method is another alternative to the container shipping. You only pay for the bay your vehicle is parked in, saving you money for importing, however, your vehicle will need to meet the limitations to using this method, such as no personal items allowed inside the vehicle during transport or the vehicle will be quarantined once it reaches Port Moresby, steam cleaned, and then continued in the process.

Air shipping is another alternative when you need the vehicle quickly however it is very expensive and not chosen often. Container shipping cost more but it does allow your vehicle to be protected so if you have a luxury vehicle, it is going to pay to use this method of shipping. When traveling to Papua, the container can be split with someone else who may be traveling to Papua which can save you money because you can split the cost.  When calculating your shipping cost, consider the import duty - 40% to 110% based on the value of your vehicle, insurance, and freight charges (CIF) while there is the applicable 10% GST.

★★★★★

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.
