Custom duties exemptions.

There is a provision under Papua New Guinea Customs Department, which is going to allow you to import vehicle free of duties if you meet the requirements which include:

  • You intend on staying in the country for 12 months after the import.
  • You owned and also used the car in the US for at least 12 months prior to the import.
  • You can produce proof of ownership by submitting the necessary documents.
  • The inspections can confirm that you’ve used the vehicle and that it has cleared the tests for roadworthiness.

Regardless of whether you get the permit for a duty-free import, you would still need to provide the following documents as well:

  • Certificate of registration.
  • Invoice.
  • Insurance.
  • Passport.
  • Title deed and driver’s license.

Costs associated with the shipping.

The shipping of the vehicle can cost you anywhere between $2,600 and $5,200 based on the distance of the course.  Papua New Guinea is an island and there are only a few limited routes that could be taken into account. What is more, you need to take into account the associated costs with the shipping. They might actually range from 40% to about 110% and there is an additional 10% GST when you are given the clearance. In addition, you can expect to pay more because of safety inspections, handling fees and whatnot.

Shipping Methods

When it comes to the shipping methods, you have two clear choices in front of you:

  1. RORO Shipping. This particular method is going to require you to drive the vehicle on its wheels onto a specifically designed shipping deck where it’s going to be strapped and shipped as is. You can’t ship any personal belongings with it and you have to empty it out entirely.
  2. Container shipping. Even though it’s more expensive, you can expect to ship your vehicle within an enclosed container alongside all sorts of personal belongings and other items of interest. However, you need to ensure that those items are actually allowed in the country.

Make sure that you check with the Embassy of Papua New Guinea for further information.
