The city of Bwizibwera is in the western region of Uganda. Bwizibwera means white water. Bwizibwera is about seventeen miles northwest of Mbarara City, which is the largest city located in the western region and approximately eight miles south of Rubindi town.

More Uganda citizens are purchasing cars as the country grows economically and in population. The most affordable way to purchase a car in Uganda is if the car is imported from another country, including the United States. Because of this, most of the vehicles in Uganda are imported.

There are current laws and regulations placed on importing a vehicle to Uganda and because of this, it’s important to know what those laws are before you import your vehicle. If you intend staying here for an extended period, it helps to directly import your vehicle then buy a vehicle here.

What you need to know about Importing to Uganda.

You will find that importing to Uganda is not blocked by several rules that you cannot possibly follow. These rules are simple and within reason. Some of these rules and regulations include:

  • import a vehicle, regardless of how old/new it is.
  • can import a vehicle regardless of your age.
  • can import a vehicle that is driven on the left or right hand side.
  • A used vehicle will need to pass inspection for roadworthiness as well as emissions.

Commercial vehicles are normally imported from Japan while personal vehicles are imported mostly from the United States. Regardless of where your vehicle comes from, you will need to first have it inspected upon arrival to Uganda.

These inspection tests are necessary to ensure that the odometer readings are right and the emissions follow regulations. Your vehicle will need to be inspected before it leaves the United States. You will be issued a certificate if your vehicle passes. Make sure you have these certificates with you when you import the vehicle to show to customs. All paperwork needs to be submitted to the Uganda Revenue Authority. You will also need the following documents:

  • Car insurance.
  • Logbook of your vehicle.
  • Bill of purchase.
  • Written inventory.
  • Your original passport and driver’s license.

Taxes and Duties to Pay for Importing.

Import duties are part of the general agreement on Trade and Tariffs, or GATT and the government of Ugandan. Taxes are set at the following:

  • 17% VAT.
  • 15% Import Duty.
  • 2% Import Communication.
  • 6% withholding tax.
  • 10% excise tax.

All of these will play a part in how much you pay for your import. However, the exact amount is based on CIF or cost of insurance, vehicle value, and shipping charges. Based on that the percentage of tax is levied which has to be paid to the Uganda Customs.

Uganda is landlocked so in order to import, you will need to make the Port of Dar-Es-Salaam in Tanzania your point of destination. You could also choose the Port of Mombasa in Kenya as well. You can pick up your vehicle once it clears customs. Working with A1 Auto Transport Service allows you the freedom to focus on other things while the transport service taxes care of the transportation process. You can find out more about importing to Uganda by contacting the Embassy of Uganda before you ship.
