Information you should know when exporting your car to Jordan from the U.S.
The city of Aqaba, Jordan does not lie on the shore of a great body of water like an ocean, yet it is still considered the biggest port city in the country. It must be accessed by ocean-going vessels via the Mediterranean Sea, through the Gulf of Suez, and on into the Gulf of Aqaba. In order to have your vehicle transported there, the number one consideration should be to contract with a shipping company familiar with the rules and regulations of international shipping with the country of Jordan. Relations with the United States are often strained, so Jordanian Customs and import officials have no reason to look kindly on American imports, and it helps to be represented by a company they have come to know and trust.
A favored way of shipping your vehicle to Jordan would be by RORO, which stands for Roll-on/Roll-off, and refers to vehicles being driven on and off the ship at departure and arrival ports. This is usually the less expensive way to ship a vehicle, because you are charged only for the space the vehicle occupies. Container shipping, which is the alternative to RORO, involves transporting your vehicle in an enclosed container that’s either 20-ft long or 40-ft long, depending on requirements.
To get your vehicle to the port of departure, you must decide whether you must have the car picked up at your residence, or if you will drive it to the departure port yourself. Obviously, the pickup service at your door would be the more expensive service.
The manner in which you have your vehicle shipped will also influence shipping time, since the shipping schedule is more or less fixed, and only a certain number of RORO shipments for instance will depart a port bound for Jordan in a given month.

Regulations have recently changed regarding the import of vehicles into the country of Jordan, and used vehicles cannot be cleared directly through the Port Authority at Aqaba. Only new vehicles with zero miles on the odometer may be cleared through Aqaba – all others are considered used, and must be cleared through the Zaraqa Free Zone by the Bureau Veritas. Any vehicle not passing standard emissions tests must be modified in order to pass those standard tests. Once the vehicle does pass these standards, the customs and import taxes will be levied, and then the car will be cleared for pickup by the owner.
