Burkina Faso is a landlocked country in West Africa. It is a populated area with nearly 16 million inhabitants. Over 32% of the country's capital is a result of the agricultural industry. It also serves as 80% of the country's employment. The country's culture is full of art, cuisine, sports, and cinema.
Regardless of whether you are going to Burkina Faso for study, employment or permanent residency, having a personal vehicle to travel in will be helpful. The public transportation is lacking and in order to get to various areas throughout the country will be much easier with a vehicle of your own.

Ways to Ship a Vehicle to Burkina Faso from the United States
There are several methods in which a person can have their vehicle shipped over to the country of Burkina Faso. Even though it is a landlocked country without any seaports, there are seaports close enough to have the vehicle shipped to. One will have to arrange transportation to the port on the day the vehicle is due for arrival. Ports will not hold vehicles for the owners.
Container shipping is a form of shipping/exporting that allows a person to fill the vehicle and remaining space in the container with a property. All of the items must be cleared by Customs or they will not be permitted into the country. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Customs to ask about the policies. This method of shipping/exporting allows you to share a container with another individual. The costs can then be split as well.
RO/RO shipping is a form of vehicle shipment that requires the vehicle to drive onto and off of the ship as is. The vehicle may only contain floor mats, a car jack, and a spare tire. No other belonging can be inside. RO/RO is not accepted at all seaports so be sure there is one close enough to where you are currently residing.
Contact the Embassy of Burkina Faso prior to selecting a form of vehicle shipment. They will inform you of all the current policies in regards to shipping/importing a vehicle from the United States. All policies must be addressed before vehicle shipment can occur. Duties and taxes will also need to be paid.
