Shipping/exporting your car to Armenia from the United States is a bit of a complicated process, but with the proper preparation, it can be completed securely. One of the main issues that you will have to deal with in shipping/exporting your vehicle to Armenia from the United States is its geographical location, as it's highly mountainous.
Situated in the South Caucasus area that is in between Eastern Europe and Western Asia, Armenia, with a population of 3,018,000 million, shares borders with Turkey, Georgia, Iran, and Azerbaijan. Despite the tumultuous area in which it is located, Armenia is a relatively safe country to do business with, though it does experience occasional tensions with Azerbaijan. Hard hit by the recent global crisis, it has seen its poverty rate go up in the past few years, though the government of Armenia has been enacting measures to rectify this.
Since it gained its independence from the Soviet Union in 1990, Armenia has changed its economic environment significantly. With its government aggressively pursuing economic and social reforms, Armenia has shifted to a market-based economy.

Armenian is the main language spoken in the country, with Russian being the most widely-spoken second language. However, English has been growing in popularity in recent years. While many involved in government, including the customs officers, speak some level of English, oftentimes, it's only at a basic level. You will need an agent like A-1 Auto to make sure that there aren't any communication issues involved.
One of the main things to note about Armenia is that it is a landlocked country. This means that your car will have to be shipped by ocean freight to one of its bordering countries and then transported via land into Armenia and your final destination. This can take a considerable amount of time, even up to a month, so it's important to plan ahead and start the process as quickly as possible if you need your vehicle delivered by a certain date.
Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Armenia
To import your automobile into Armenia, you will need the following documents:
- Proof of Ownership of the Vehicle
- Purchase Invoice / Bill of Sale (Price, Date, and Location of Original Purchase)
- Certificate of Registration
- Copy of Passport
- Inspection Certification (Vehicle is in Working Order and Meets Technical Specifications)
- Proof of Residency / Visa
*You must be present in Armenia at the scheduled arrival date of your shipment.
As mentioned, since Armenia is a landlocked country, you will have to go through a two-step process to have your vehicle shipped from the United States. The ocean freight shipment options are the following:
- Roll-On and Roll-Off Service: Not only the cheapest but also the most commonly used service, your car will be placed on a secure car deck until it arrives at its destination port. Once there, the vehicle will then be placed onto a special transportation vehicle in order to deliver it to Armenia. A drawback of choosing this service for delivery to Armenia is that it takes a bit longer than the Container Service, which will possibly extend the already-lengthy journey that your shipment has to Armenia.
- Container Service: The Container Service will be a bit more expensive, but it'll help save you time on the journey since it arrives much faster. Your car will be placed in its very own special container, which you can also use to place other goods that you want to be shipped as well.
A-1 Auto can help you not to ship it but can arrange for its land transportation as well.
Main Ports of Arrival
The main port countries that you can ship to from the United States in the vicinity of Armenia are:
It's recommended to choose Georgia since it's the most Western-friendly out of the four countries.
The duty fee will be a total of around 30%, though A-1 Auto will work to make the cost as low as possible.
