Being a well-established and densely populated country, the roadways stretch across each island, making travel easier on its inhabitants. A personal vehicle is a wise accommodation to have during a long stay or permanent residency.

Shipping Methods for a Vehicle to Comoros
There are various methods that can be used to ship/import a vehicle to Comoros from the United States. However, two of these methods are more practical and many choose between them.
Container shipping is quite practical especially for those who plan on residing on the islands. It allows a person to fill their vehicle with belongings allowed by Customs. The container can also be filled with property and there are two sizes of containers to select from. A person choosing container shipping can split the container with another person. This can help to reduce the higher costs of shipment.
The roll on, roll off method, also known as RO/RO shipping/exporting, is less expensive than container shipping. The vehicle must roll onto the ship as well as roll off. The automobile must be completely empty other than its floor mats, a car jack, and a spare tire.
At the time of the vehicle's due arrival, the owner must be present. There are several Comoros ports, one on each island, so make sure that the right port is known and the vehicle is sent to the correct island. Some of the Comoros ports include:
