Ship Your Car To Or From Dessie, Ethiopia

Dessie is both a city and a zone in the north-central region of Ethiopia and it’s located in the Amhara Region. It’s not cheap to ship a car here from the US because the distance is quite significant. Standard vehicles get shipped for $3,600 to $7,200 and the costs get higher for larger vehicles and if they are shipped from the West Coast. However, the cost of buying a new imported vehicle is significantly higher. Thus, it turns out to be cheaper to import your own car than invest in a new one here.

If you plan to relocate permanently or to go on an extensive trip in Ethiopia in the near future, you will have to contemplate the transportation of your personal vehicle as it will provide you with tremendous convenience and freedom of travel. You will also go through the language barriers, which is definitely something considerable. Having the car shipped to Ethiopia isn’t as hard as it may seem, even though it’s a bit more expensive. Working with A1 Auto Transport service is going to ensure that the entire process is rather hassle-free.

Required Documentation

When you export your car outside of the USA, you will need a lot of specific documents as well as to abide by certain requirements. The documents that you need to submit include:

  • Ownership proof
  • Registration and title
  • Passport and license
  • Receipt for importation
  • Driver’s license
  • Insurance certification
  • OBL with VIN
  • Permit for Import
  • Authorization from the road authority
  • Letter of support

There are quite a lot of taxes imposed under the Ethiopian Revenues and Customs Authority that you will also have to consider when it comes to it. There are at least 5 of them. These include Excise tax, VAT, Sur Tax and Withholding Tax. These range from 0.5% to 35% of CIF so you will get an estimate from A1 Auto Transport service to budget properly. Make sure the clear them out in order to avoid any issues during custom clearance.

Shipping Methods

There are different options that you can choose from – RO/RO and container shipping. Both are convenient, depending on the things that you are looking for and want to achieve. Container shipping will allow you to use a 20ft or 40ft container depending on the size of the vehicle and the amount of personal belongings that you wish to ship.

RO/RO, on the other hand, will leave your vehicle open and exposed to the elements throughout the entire journey. However, it’s a lot less expensive and it’s far quicker than the alternative, so it’s a matter of your personal preference. You can contact the Ethiopian Consulate in USA to know more about the current taxes and laws governing car imports.
