Information on vehicle import.
When it comes to shipping your vehicle, you will need to start with the basic information which can help you fill out your paperwork along the way. It's important to know the rules and regulations of shipping your vehicle internationally before you embark on this journey. To begin with, you need to check with the U.S Customs and Border Protection first to make sure that you have everything you need to begin your import. They will be able to direct you on where to find what you need and to assist you in getting your vehicle on board with at least a seventy-two-hour notice. It's important to hire a company like A1 Auto Transport Service to do this part for you so you don't have to worry about doing it yourself.
Estimating the cost and documentation.
Shipping a vehicle across the waters is an affordable way to get your vehicle with you when you travel. You will ensure some charges such as freight charges, the cost of the vehicle, additional insurance on your vehicle, the size of the vehicle, the capacity of the engine, and more. Vanuatu doesn't charge any excise taxes, however, there is a fixed duty that is charged. The VAT is 12.5% on an imported vehicle. You can find out more about charges by contacting the Vanuatu Customs and Inland Revenue. The import duties are charged at 15% and the engine capacity should be below 1000cc. For those engines that are between 1000cc and 1500cc's, you will need to pay 25%. You will also need to pay 40% duty on a vehicle that has a 3000cc engine. No right hand driven cars are allowed in the country except through special clearances.
You will need to provide the best documentation the first time in order to avoid any delays. Documentation is used to verify proof of ownership as well as establish information that is vital to the country. You will need to bring with you the following documentation:
- Bill of Lading.
- Name and the address of the consignee.
- Description of the vehicle you are importing including the country of origination.
- Purchase invoice of the vehicle.
- Logbook of the vehicle.
- Certificate of the evaluated value of the car.
- Vehicle title.
- Registration card.
- Proof of ownership - such as a passport and driving license.
You can discuss the documentation necessary as well as the process and procedure with A1 Auto Transport Service before you are scheduled to import your vehicle. You can also verify the information by contacting the Port Vila at Embassy of Vanuatu.
