Shipping A Car To Haiti
Typical Shipping Prices – How Much Does It Cost?
- Most car shipping services to Haiti from the U.S. can be done for $1,200 to $2,700, not including applicable taxes and registration fees.
- Since Haiti is relatively close, shipping costs can be even less than the numbers mentioned above, especially for transport shipments coming from Florida.
Exporting a car to the Republic of Haiti can take some work, and if you don’t have all the documents and legal paperwork in order, it can also take a lot of time and end up costing more than it should. There are different requirements for bringing a vehicle into Haiti, depending on whether it’s for business, organizational or personal use. Understanding the taxes involved and having the required legal documents is essential to keeping the process efficient and costs to a minimum.
Non-governmental organizations (NGO) are exempt from paying import taxes, but still must pay an inspection fee when shipping a car to Haiti.
Haitian auto imports are taxed on a sliding scale that depends on the value of the vehicle. The taxation rates are between 5% and 20% and increase by increments of 5%. Most vehicles–those valued higher than $2,000–pay the maximum tax of 20%. A 10% tourist tax must be paid when bringing a used vehicle in to the country. If your imported vehicle must be stored temporarily in Haiti while paperwork and documents are sorted out, there is a daily fee that applies.
