You need to ensure that you have the permit before you initialize the procedure. This permit alongside all of the documents and paperwork needs to be presented to the customs official. This is going to allow the official to actually check whether everything is alright and in order. South Africa is one of the most expensive areas to ship a car from and Namibia is not an exception. Most of the vehicles which are shipped to the area from the US cost between $3000 and $7000 in terms of transportation. As Namibia does not have its own auto industry, buying an imported vehicle here might be a more expensive option.
Keep in mind that there is a certain delay in the stamping and it might be required for you to make a provisional payment right towards the releasing of the vehicle. This particular payment is usually around 20% of the duties and about 16.5% of the taxes. It’s going to be refunded as soon as the situation has been rectified.
You can import only one vehicle per family duty-free. There is a 15% tax which is going to be applied to this particular vehicle. You also need to keep it under your ownership for at least 2 years after the import.
There are three ports from which you can ship your vehicle to the country. They are in Savannah, New York, and Los Angeles. You need to keep this in mind when you decide how as well as when to ship the vehicle as you are going to be required to meet certain shipping costs which are in-state and international. If you have any further questions, you need to contact the Embassy of Namibia in Washington, DC.
