Import regulations

Tanzania has very flexible laws on importing vehicles and there is no age limit on the used vehicles. However, there are higher percentage of duties and taxes applicable, if the vehicle is over 10 years.  Thus, ensure that you discuss the details of the export/import with the shipping service that is taking care of the transportation of the vehicle. Additionally, there are roadworthiness tests that need to be cleared before the car can be driven publically. If the vehicle fails the test then it will have to undergo modifications and clear it again before the Ministry of Transport in Tanzania allows it on the road.

There is a 25% import duty on all used cars and 10% to 20% VAT on all cars that are imported to Dar es Salaam. With plenty of ports in Tanzania, freight shipping is a profitable business and when you work with a reliable shipping service that specializes in international transportation such as A1 Auto Transport service, it helps to smoothen out the process.

Submission of documents

There are plenty of documents that are needed when you are shipping to Tanzania. You will need to submit these:

  • Valid driving license.
  • Original car title deed.
  • Insurance documents.
  • Passport of the owner.
  • Original bill of purchase.

Additionally the cost of the shipping will depend upon the method of shipping you select. You can choose from RORO or container shipping. When you compare the cost of both, RORO is cheaper as you only pay for the space occupied by the vehicle. In this method of shipping, you are not allowed to keep your personal things in the vehicle but only the spare tire, floor mats and car jack are allowed. While in container shipping, you have to hire the complete 20 feet or 40 feet container to secure the vehicle and transport other goods that need to be sent to Dar es Salaam.

You can contact Tanzania Revenue Authority and find the taxes and duties that are currently applicable. It will help you plan the shipping and import of vehicle better.
