Shipping to Lenakel.

There is some information that you might want to consider when you ship a car from the USA. To start with, you are going to make sure to notify the U.S Customs and Border Protection Agency about your intent if you are to get clearance at least 72 hours in advance. This is going to prevent any unwanted and annoying delays. The logistics are quite comprehensive and easy as Lenakel is without a doubt the largest port in Vanuatu.

Documentation and Cost Estimation.

The truth is that it is rather affordable to ship your car to Vanuatu. The duty tax is based on the CIF (cost, insurance value and freight costs) and also the size of engine, the capacity of the vehicle and its overall size. There are no excise taxes in the country while there are fixed levies of 12.5% VAT on all of the import vehicles. The import duties are around 15% for all of the engine capacities which are below 1000ccc. Those that are above are subjected to 1000cc and less than 1500cc – 25% and over 3000ccc – 40% tax. Furthermore, the Vanuatu Customs and Inland Revenue isn’t allowing the import of right-handed vehicles.  The required documentation include:

  • Bill of lading.
  • Name of the consignee.
  • Description of the car.
  • Purchase invoice.
  • Logbook of the car.
  • Title and registration.
  • Ownership proof.

The total documentation has to be completed prior to the shipping process in order to ensure that everything goes according to plan. In any case, shipping a car to the country is fairly easy and you shouldn’t be going through a lot of problems. However, you would still want to consider contacting the Embassy of Vanuatu in Washington, D.C. Furthermore, you want to know that you can choose between RORO and Container Shipping which are the two overly preferred shipping methods that are going to be cheaper for you. Any further regulations are better off discussed with the customs or your shipping agent.
