Requirements and Restrictions for Importing.

You can contact the Uganda Revenue Authority to learn more about the rules and regulations that you will need to follow. You will need to fill out and send your application for importing to them. You will then need to clear customs before you can claim it once it reaches Mbala. The rules and regulations are not stringent yet it's important that you follow them just the same. You can only import a vehicle that is new or used, and most vehicles are imported commercially from Japan. One of the important inspections includes the “roadworthiness test” which is conducted by the Japanese Export Vehicle Inspection Center (JEVIC). This validates that the vehicle is in good condition and emissions are within the requirements.  When the vehicle is imported from USA, pre-inspections need to be conducted before it is accepted in Uganda.

How to Prepare your Vehicle to Import.

You will need to prepare your vehicle while it is still in the U.S. There are certain rules and regulations that need to be followed to prepare your vehicle for shipping to avoid any delays. You need to fill out all exporting applications and paperwork and submit them to the customs department in both the countries. You will need to have the following documentation available when you submit your application:

  • Permission from the lien holder if there is a lien against your vehicle.
  • Bill of Lading.
  • Ownership proofs.
  • Bill of Sale.
  • All information about your vehicle; the make, model, engine number, and chassis.
  • Custom clearance certificate.

All paperwork will need to be turned in as quickly as possible. If you hire A1 Auto Transport Service, you can ensure that all paperwork is filled out and delivered to the customs as required and everything is provided as needed. A1 Auto Transport Service will even come and get your vehicle if you are running low on time. If you need an authorization letter, A1 can obtain that letter for you as well. Additionally, there are taxes that need to be paid before the vehicle is delivered to the owners. The taxes include 15% import duty, 17% VAT, 6% withholding taxes and 10% excise duty. This is approved by the General Agreement on Trade and Tariffs (GATT).

Shipping Options Available.

You will have two different shipping options when you are inquiring about shipping to Uganda. You can choose the Roll On/ Roll Off method or container shipping.

With the Roll On/ Roll Off method, or RORO, your vehicle will be rolled onto the deck of the ship where it is parked in a bay and secured before the ship departs. Your vehicle will only be allowed on the deck of the ship if it is completely cleaned out and only contains the floor mats and the car jack inside. You will be responsible for removing the air conditioning gas before you have it placed on the deck of the ship. If you don't remove the gas before your vehicle departs, it will be quarantined.

Container shipping is another option for shipping your vehicle. This method is the most expensive way to ship your vehicle to Uganda. There are two sizes of containers to choose from; 20 foot or 40 foot. The best part of choosing containers is that you can place all your personal household items inside the container once you place the vehicle inside. Once you have your container loaded up, it will be secured and loaded onto the deck of the ship with a crane. If you have any questions regarding importing your vehicle, you can contact the Ugandan Embassy in the United States.
