Auto Transport Djibouti

Located in the Horn of Africa or far East Africa, Djibouti is a small country bordered by the Red Sea. The geography of Djibouti consists heavily of highlands, plateaus, and plains. The climate is harsh heat year round with very heavy rainfalls during the winter months, making much of Djibouti wildlife endangered. Many travel to the country for study and work with the unique wildlife there is to be found.

While the harsh heat isn't exactly ideal for automobiles, having a personal vehicle could greatly enhance a person's ability to travel the country. Roadways exist but many are unpaved. There aren't nearly as many roadways available due to the geography of the country, but a personal vehicle will make travel much easier.

Documents and Restrictions on Vehicle Imports

Shipping regulations for automobiles vary widely across the continent of Africa. Some African countries have tight regulations regarding the import of vehicles, and these regulations are subject to frequent change. It's always a good idea to get in touch with Customs. Being ready for anything is a good idea. Otherwise, shipping a vehicle may be prohibited.

As for Djibouti, only left-handed vehicles are permitted, seeing as vehicles are driven on the left side of the road. Luckily, other than the automobile needing to be a left-handed vehicle, there aren't too many restrictions.

One can assume that specific documentation will be needed. Documents such as a passport, picture I.D., title and registration, proof of vehicle ownership, and proof of Djibouti residency and employment are always beneficial to have with the vehicle owner at the time of the automobile's importation.

Best Car Shipping Company Djibouti

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle to Djibouti

  • Original bill of lading (BOL)
  • Purchase invoice with value listed.
  • Valid letter to Ministry of Foreign Affairs signed by Ministry of Finance.
  • Certificate of origin.
  • Packing list.

Time of Vehicle's Arrival

At the time of the vehicle's arrival, the owner must be present. All of the proper documentation must be on hand and tariffs will need to be paid. More than likely, the vehicle will be shipped to Port de Djibouti. This is the major port in the country that is located on the border of the Red Sea.

The port is in an ideal location and serves over 380 million people. This port is one of the most well-known ports in Africa and vehicle importation from the U.S. should be rather smooth.

  • RoRo Shipping (Roll On/ Roll Off)- this is the cheapest, most desired and simplest way to transport oversized cargo overseas. Not all sea ports accept this type of transport but we will ship to the nearest allowing port and have ground transport ready to take your cargo from there.
  • LoLo Shipping (Lift On/Lift Off)- using a crane to lift your cargo onto and off of the ship securely, this method is mainly suggested to those with inoperable vehicles and crated cargo.
  • Flat Rack- this transport service secures your heavy cargo to a metal rack before it is placed on the ship.
  • Container Shipping- only customer’s trying to ship heavy equipment that can fit into a 40ft shipping container are able to use this more expensive shipping method. This is the safest shipping method offered for overseas deliveries.

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.
