Chitungwiza goes by another name as well; Chi-Town. It is located in Zimbabwe. This city is located about thirty kilometers south of Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe. The town was formed in 1978 and there are three townships; St. Marys, Seke, and Zengeza which were merged to form the large suburb of Harare.
If you plan on moving to Chi-Town for a short or long term basis, you may want to see what this beautiful city has to offer around the Bulawayo and Harare area. You will need to have your own personal vehicle to get you around the area without the worry of public transportation. You will need to understand the rules and regulations of importing your vehicle before you begin the process to avoid any delays.

Zimbabwe is a landlocked country and thus, shipping to the city of Chitungwiza, you will require that you pay freight shipping to the closest seaport of Beira in Mozambique. There are river ports all around the Harare and it is a busy city. You have several options include land transportation of your car or truck from Beira port in Mozambique or you can transport it to other river routes. If you are not sure which direction to go, you may need to hire the services of A1 Auto Transport Service.

You will need to fill out form 47. This is the ZIMRA Custom Declaration Form that everyone who is importing a vehicle will need to fill out. In order for your vehicle to be accepted by customs, you will need to have your steering mechanism on the right hand side of the car/truck. Vehicle taxes include a fixed customs duty of 40% and 25% surcharge If the vehicle you want to import is more than five years old. There are currently no emissions standards required.
However, as with shipping to any international destination, there are a host of documents to submit along with copies. Here is a list of essential documentation that is needed:
- Driver’s license.
- Car title.
- Proof of ownership.
- Insurance proof.
- ZIMRA Custom Declaration Form.
- Import permit.
- Letter of Authority from SABS.
Your vehicle can be shipped by air but this is the most expensive way of shipping. That leaves two choices for you; the Roll On/ Roll Off shipping and the container shipping which gives you an option of a 20 or 40 foot container. If you have a fixed budget and are only sending in a vehicle, RORO works well. Under this method, you are only allowed to ship an empty vehicle, devoid of any personal items and air conditioning gas. Additionally, you need to ensure that the vehicle is steam-cleaned before it is shipped.
You will need to have all customs forms filled out and submitted. You will need to have all duties paid in full before you can pick up your vehicle too. You can contact the Embassy of Zimbabwe for more information.
