Though there are very strict protocols, shipping your car to Kuwait from the United States is possible. Doing so requires a great deal of due diligence in examining every single requirement and making sure that each one is satisfied adequately. There's very little leeway at Kuwaiti customs.

Fortunately, A-1 Auto is aware of every single requirement and will help you to determine if you're eligible to ship your vehicle. Given that it's a complex process with all of their rules and regulations, you do not want to have to pay extra fees or spend an exorbitant amount of time due to delays.

Situated at the top of the Persian Gulf, Kuwait shares a border with both Saudi Arabia and Iraq and has a population of around 4 million. Though it has been a country that has relied heavily on oil exports, it has branched out into other industries in recent years.

Now it maintains its status as one of the wealthiest Arab nations and is ruled by a constitutional monarchy. It has fair tariff rates, with its average being 4.1%, but one of the issues with shipping your vehicle from the United States to Kuwait is that there is still a high level of corruption on occasion. However, it does have a copious amount of open-market policies that promote free trade.

Import Recommendations

Compared to many other countries, Kuwait has put in place strict restrictions on who can import vehicles from overseas. Arabic is the official language of the country, though English is spoken by many of its citizens. Government officials and business professionals are expected to speak it, and it's mandatory for citizens to learn it in school.

Before examining the document requirements for shipping a vehicle to Kuwait from the United States, you must first see if you even qualify. The following are the conditions that must be met, with no exceptions:

  • Non-Kuwaiti citizens must be sponsored by an employer in Kuwait, and it has to subsequently be shipped through that employer's name.
  • Kuwaiti nationals can ship a vehicle without having to obtain an employee sponsor.

In other words, if you're not a Kuwaiti national, you will not be able to ship your vehicle unless you have an employer there than can sponsor it.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Kuwait

  1. Valid Driver's License.
  2. Copy of Passport.
  3. Purchase Invoice / Bill of Sale (Price, Date, and Location of Original Purchase)
  4. Certificate of Registration.
  5. Bill of Lading.
  6. Power of Attorney.
  7. Original Title of Automobile.
  8. Proof of ownership.
  9. Import certificate.
  10. Certificate of origin.

*There's a 5% duty fee that's owed at customs. This 5% fee is taken from the value of the automobile, the cost of shipping, and the marine insurance fee. A-1 Auto will help to limit as many of the fees as possible.

Shipping Methods

The best way to ship your vehicle to Kuwait is through ocean freight. Other options would be to time consuming and expensive to seriously consider. The two methods that A-1 Auto offers are:

  • Roll-On and Roll-Off Service: This method is best for those who are only shipping a vehicle and aren't also shipping personal items as well. It's the cheaper out of the two methods and involves placing your vehicle on a secure car deck.
  • Container Service: Choosing the container service does mean that you'll have to pay more, but you'll also get a bit more security and a faster arrival time. Your car will be placed in a special individual container that can also host other personal items, though they cannot be placed inside of the vehicle.

It can take between a week to two weeks for everything to be delivered.

Main Ports of Arrival

Kuwait has three main ports, all in the proximity of Kuwait City, located within the Persian Gulf. The three main ports are:

  • Port of Shuwaikh.
  • Port of Shuaiba.
  • Port of Doha.

After arriving at the port, you will need to provide the customs agent with a temporary import permit and a letter from the employee that has sponsored you, both of which you would need to obtain in advance.

Kuwait's roads and highways are well-developed, so you shouldn't experience much difficulty in driving to your final destination.

A-1 Auto will take care of everything for you and will help you out with any eligibility questions that you may have. Contact us today!

Shipping Of Heavy Equipment & Oversized Cargo To Kuwait

Delivering heavy equipment or oversized cargo to Kuwait that’s shipped over from the United States is bound to be challenging for anyone without the right shipping equipment or prior experience dealing with foreign import policies. At A1 Auto Transport, we have everything necessary to guarantee a safe overseas delivery. For over 25 years we have had the pleasure of transporting all types of oversized cargo and heavy equipment used in industrial, agricultural, mining, paving, construction, and engineering industries. Here are some examples…

  • Tractors
  • Combines
  • Backhoes
  • Bulldozers
  • Dump trucks
  • Forklifts
  • Hydraulic Equipment
  • Engines
  • Pile Drivers
  • Asphalt Pavers
  • Cranes
  • Road Rollers
  • Excavators
  • RVs
  • Large Yachts
  • Pontoon Boats
  • Excavators and more

When you purchase shipping services through A1, you will benefit from free insurance protection. The entire value of your cargo may not be protected under the free insurance we add on to your purchase so we offer additional insurance plans if you so desire.

Various Overseas Shipping Methods Available through A1

We have four methods of international transport for heavy equipment. These options include flat rack, container, roll on/roll off, and lift on/lift off shipping. Dependent on the type of cargo you have to ship and your budget, you may have one or more of these shipping methods available to you. Our representatives will help you with your choices before putting you on the schedule for transport to Kuwait.

If your cargo can fit into a 40ft shipping container despite its weight and size, you can use this safe, enclosed method. The cheapest options available are our open air services which include RoRo, LoLo and flat rack. RoRo is recommended to individuals with operable vehicles while LoLo is recommended for those with crated equipment or inoperable vehicles since a crane is used to move the cargo to and from the ship. Flat rack shipping may be another open air service but it provides more security by fastening your cargo to a metal frame.

Satisfied Customers

“A1 Auto Transport means stress-free. I shipped my Toyota Prius from Chicago to Mississippi, and they were very flexible in terms of pick-up and delivery time. I'll surely put them on my favourites list. The car arrived safely and in perfect condition. Other than a bit of dust caught on the road, there’s nothing to report. It was the best service and a very pleasant company!”

“Hello!As part of our "Deal" we ended up using the dealers transport company. HOWEVER, we still have not seen the car. No one seems to know when it's arriving either. It's been fifteen days now. Trust me, next time we WILL use you guys!”

“A couple months ago, while on a vacation to Massachusetts, I finally found a car I was looking for. It took me over a year to find it, but after speaking to the seller and 20 minutes of negotiating, it was finally mine. Now, I just had to get it back home to New York. Easier said than done. Fortunately, after searching the web for an hour, I found A1 Auto Transport, a reputable company who seemed to be what I was looking for. Dealing with them was surprisingly easy. I spoke to Joe and got an estimate quite fast. I had a million questions, ranging from the reasonable, like “How much does it cost” to a few that pushed the limit, like “is the driver an alcoholic.” Joe was patient enough to ease my worries. One of his trucks was schedule to drop by Massachusetts in a couple of days, and it was there at the agreed upon time. I barraged the driver with a dozen more questions, to which he replied calmly, though a bit surprised. He took a spin around my brand new car, checked for any scratches and was surprised to not find any. I gave him a wink and told him to take special care of it. This he did. When I met him to pick the car up, it was exactly as I saw it when it boarded the truck. You have my gratitude!”

“To whom it may concern: I currently work out of the Auto Driveaway Co - Atlanta, Georgia location. At this moment I would like to take this time to say "THANK YOU" to one of your representatives Ms. Cherie Morse. Repeatedly she has presented herself ( and a reflection on A1 Auto Transport ) to be quite capable to me - promptly answering my questions ( mostly quotes @ competitive rates ) and assisting me in tracking down those trucking movements - done in the past. Unlike other companies wherein I get a "machine" and MIGHT get an answer back that day - Even with her voice mail, her response is immediate and for the want of nothing else, I wanted someone to know at A1 Auto Transport that I "at least" sincerely appreciate all her efforts. Thank you again. Sincerely, Phillip Raila Auto Driveaway Company, Atlanta”

“We had to move a car from Austin to Ohio, so we picked A1 Auto Transport to do it. Joe was fast to take our order and we were scheduled for transport immediately. I first talked to him on Monday, and the truck arrived on Thursday morning. I was also kept in the know throughout the move. I called several times, perhaps too many times, but they always answered promptly. The arrival was a bit troublesome. The car was supposed to arrive in Ohio between 10am and 3pm. Later, he called saying he’ll arrive an hour or 2 later due to traffic, so we had to spend some time waiting. But considering everything that can happen on the road these days, we’re glad it wasn’t delayed more. The car arrived as we sent it, clean and without a scratch. We double checked just in case.”
