For Returning Citizens

If you are a citizen returning to Cairo you will need to have your Bill of Lading and Airway Bill, keys to the car, authorization letter for handling your car and the letter must be issued locally in Egypt. You may import a new or used car and will need to pay duties on the car at customs. You must also have paperwork or the car title showing you as the owner and you will need to have the document notarized by the Egyptian Consulate. You will also be required to show your passport and it must be verified that it was stamped upon entry to Egypt within six months prior to the importation of the car.

For Foreigners

Foreigners must show their passport and must have a valid residency Visa that is good for a minimum of three months. You must also show the Bill of Lading and Airway Bill, have the key to the car, an authorization letter for handling the car for travel, and may also import either a new or used car. You must import your car within one year of your actual purchase and you must be the original owner and will need to pay duties as well as taxes at the time of import. If you are an Expatriate and work in the Egyptian Government area you can have the duty fee waived as long as you can assure customs that the car will be re-exported when you leave Egypt. If you do not work for the Government but you are a business owner with a business in Cairo, you can also have the duty fee waived but must have a bank guarantee on the amount of the duty fee. Imported cars that do not pay the duty fee can stay in Cairo for up to six months but must be re-exported at the end of the six months and cannot be imported back to Cairo for six months after export.

Auto Transport Cairo

For Diplomats

If you are a diplomat entering Cairo and need your personal car with you, you will need to have your Sea Way and Airway Bills, Egyptian Diplomatic ID, authorization to handle letter, keys to the car and a Clearing Letter that is issued by the Egypt Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Customs suggests that cars are not shipped along with household goods because clearing a car will take much longer than clearing household good. The clearance of the car will take typically 6-7 days if you have all of your paperwork turned in correctly as well as your Original Bill of Lading (OBL)

For further information on import regulations for Cairo, Egypt you can contact the Embassy of Egypt. They can provide you with import laws as well as local information specific to Cairo.

How to Ship and What Will it Cost

Shipping your car internationally to Cairo should be made as simple as possible when you are working together with a reputable international auto transport company. Your agent will go over the cost of shipping with you. Shipping costs can vary depending on how you decide to ship the car, what kind of car and what the size of it may be and whether you will be shipping anything else with the car. You will essentially choose from two types of shipping to send your car from the U.S. to Cairo.

Ship Your Car Cairo
  • Ro-Ro (Roll On/Roll Off) Shipping - Shipping with Ro-Ro is the easiest way to ship a car internationally to Cairo. Your car will need to be emptied before it is loaded onto the ship as you cannot ship personal items when you ship with Ro-Ro.
  • Container Vehicle Shipping - Shipping in a container makes it simple for people who need to ship personal items when they ship their car. You will be able to pack your home goods and personal items inside of the container when the car is being loaded.

Before you ship your car to Cairo you may want to find out more about U.S. export laws and import laws for Cairo. You can contact the U.S Customs and Border Protection Agency and they can provide you with valuable information pertaining to international import/export laws.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
