- Bill of Sale
For used vehicles
- Car Registration Documents
- Proof of Insurance
There are also various taxes (duties) that can be charged towards the vehicle. Anyone exporting a vehicle to Equatorial Guinea as a personal effect under the name of the owner, who can prove that the car was owned by them for at least six months, will be exempt from these duties. Before shipping a vehicle to Guinea you must receive authorization from both the port authorities and the Ministry of Transportation. Again, this authorization is required before the property leaves its port of origin. Whether you have opted for door-to-door or port-to-port, you need to evaluate the cost before deciding.
While shipping to Equatorial Guinea, as in any other country includes a lot of paperwork and some research, it is a relatively simple procedure. As long as the person exporting their vehicle can provide the needed proof in exporting goods to a foreign country, he/she will have little to no trouble when doing so.
There are a few options available in regards to shipment. Container shipment supplies a little-added assurance that your vehicle will reach its destination undamaged but it can also cost a little more than roll-on-roll-off shipping. It is up to the owner to decide which the best option is and to determine whether or not their destination port accepts both methods.
