Requirements to Ship a Vehicle to Bogota, Columbia

If you will not be able to drive your car to the exit port on your own, you will need to make arrangements with the auto transport company to have your car transported to the port nearest your location for shipping to Bogota. You will also need to provide the auto transporter with some required documents prior to shipping. The main documents are:

  • Driver’s License
  • Social Security Number
  • Vehicle Title
  • Certificate of Insurance
  • Signed Power of Attorney in the event that you will need pick-up or delivery to or from the exit or entry ports\

Your auto transport agent will make shipping a car to Bogota seem like a breeze as they have all of the vital information that you will need to have your vehicle cleared through Customs as well as assisting you with transporting the car to the exit port or to your location in Bogota.

Only Diplomats are allowed to import used vehicles to Bogota, Columbia. Non Diplomats may import new cars as long as the car is one year old or less and has a total mileage of zero. If you’re a Diplomat you need to make sure that you abide by the Customs regulations of Columbia when preparing to ship the vehicle. You will need the following documents to be able to have your vehicle cleared through customs in Columbia:

You will also need to provide the following to verify Diplomat status to import the car:

  • Registration document originated by the Foreign Ministry
  • Diplomatic Permit presented by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs
  • Import permit obtained from the Incomex Institute. Once the permit has been approved the Department of Environment will issue a Quality Certificate for the vehicle.

Note that Foreign Diplomats do not need to receive approval of an Import License before shipping. Diplomats who are returning to Bogota will need to apply in person for a Diplomat Permit and will be liable to pay an IVA tax ranging from 15% to 45% on the Cost, Insurance and Freight value that is based on the Engine capacity. Foreign Diplomats are not required to pay duty and taxes on importing a car. To ship any household goods when shipping the vehicle, prior approval must be acquired from the customs agency.

Due to the fact that Bogota, Columbia does not sit on the coastline, the best way to have your vehicle shipped will be by Air Cargo to the Eldorado Airport in Bogota. Shipping by air is the fastest route to having a vehicle or household goods shipped internationally. You can also opt to use sea shipping in which case your vehicle would be shipped to the Buenaventura Port (COBUN) in Valle del Cauca, Columbia. From that port of entry, you can choose to have the vehicle transported either by river to the Yumbo River Port entering into Bogota or you can pick the car up at the Buenaventura Port and drive it into Bogota. You can choose Ro-Ro or Container Shipping to have your vehicle transported overseas by a freight ship.

Your auto transport agent will go over all of the shipping details with you to let you know what preparations you need to do concerning your vehicle, the cost of shipping and also customs information that will be necessary prior to shipping. You can also contact the Embassy of Columbia in Washington, DC for further information.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

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.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
