Things to consider before the shipping.
You want to make sure that you have prepared all the right documentations to export your car from the USA and import it into Dukhan which is the available port in Qatar. You’d have to prepare:
- S registration documents.
- Invoice of purchase.
- Title deed (free of any liens).
- Working or residence permit.
- Proof of ownership.
- Driving license and a passport.
It’s also advisable to refer to the Customs Department of Qatar for any requirements regarding the eligibility of your car. There might be some other restrictions along the process that you’d need to know about and you are going to need a special Qatar license.
You are also going to get the vehicle prepared. You have to get it steam cleaned, get rid of the air conditioning gas and all non-permanent accessories and any personal belongings. This is even more important and crucial if you are going to use the Roll-On/Roll-Off shipping method. It’s highly recommended that you discuss with the shipping agent and if you have any doubts you can always take a look at the Title 19 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations.
Freight Shipping Options.
You can choose to go with container shipping which is an expensive of the ways to ship a car. The latter would be safely stored within a large container of 20ft or 40ft, based on your personal preference and needs. This adds an extra layer of proper protection.
The Roll On/Roll Off or Ro-Ro shipping is the cheapest way because your car is driven on a shipping deck and secured in one place. Once it arrives at the port it would be driven off.
Once you arrive in the city, you would need to make sure that all of the procedures are well taken care of. You would have to pay customs fees as well as import taxes once you get the vehicle registered in Qatar. If you need any further information, you can always contact the Embassy of Qatar.
