Ship Car To Mecca
๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฆ Saudi Arabia, (SA)

Importing a motor vehicle to Mecca is a little different than importing to other cities in Saudi Arabia. While Mecca is one of the largest cities not only by population and land area, it is also a very commercially productive city. One very important thing you need to know about Mecca prior to having a motor vehicle imported is that you are only allowed in the city if you are Muslim. Non-Muslim people may not enter this holy city at all. If you will be staying in Mecca you will find that having your own personal motor vehicle will be very necessary as there is no public transit at all in Mecca except for taxi cabs. Taxis in Mecca can be expensive if you will need to use them daily. You will only be able to import your car if it is within five years of the manufacture date, has never been wrecked or used in a crime, and you will need a Certificate of Conformity issued by the Ministry of External Affairs to Saudi Arabia before the motor vehicle is even shipped from the United States. You will have to have all of the overseas shipping handled by a professional auto transport company.

Youโ€™ll have a lot of paperwork to get together not only for the transport company, but for customs in Saudi Arabia as well. For the transport company in the United States you will need basic documents like your license, social security card, motor vehicle title and a signed Power of Attorney statement. The statement will give the company access to transport your motor vehicle. They will also need you to fill out quite a bit of other mandatory shipping paperwork before the motor vehicle can be shipped. You will want to contact the Saudi Arabia Embassy in Washington, DC for complete information on what you will need for customs when the motor vehicle reaches Mecca. You will need to get a residence permit prior to shipping the motor vehicle as well. Customs will require you to have some of the following paperwork as well:

  • Sponsor Letter of Employment for your Work Visa.
  • Motor Vehicle Title.
  • Original Bill of Sale.
  • Passport .
  • Motor Vehicle Insurance valid in Mecca.
  • Saudi Driverโ€™s License.

You need to make sure you have all necessary paperwork when you are with customs for clearance. If you do not have the correct documents customs can export your motor vehicle immediately back to the United States.

Shipping to Mecca.

In the United States itโ€™s easy to ship a motor vehicle from one state to another by simply driving it or loading it onto a transport truck. Shipping overseas is far more complex than that but will be taken care of just as easily when you have the services of the international auto transport company. First you will need to get your motor vehicle to major U.S. shipping port that it will be exported out of. If you canโ€™t deliver it to the port on your own youโ€™ll need to have the transport company pick it up and deliver it for you on the shipping date. Once it arrives at the port, it will need to be loaded onto the cargo ship for transport internationally. During the time that you work with the international shipping company to prepare for shipping your vehicle, they will go into detail about the types of shipping you can choose from to transport your car. If you will need transport solely for your motor vehicle and nothing else, then the best route of transport will be Ro-Ro Shipping. This type of shipping is the most convenient way to ship a motor vehicle overseas and is used widely throughout the world for international shipping. Motor vehicles are driven onto a Ro-Ro ship, secured in place and then transported overseas. You can also use Container Shipping to transport your motor vehicle overseas. Containers are more secure when shipping by sea and protective from the salt water and wind on the ocean.

Your transport agent will work the details of how to transport your motor vehicle as you are making plans for shipping. You can contact U.S. Customs for information on export laws for the United States and to check on laws that may have been recently changed concerning shipping your motor vehicle to Mecca.
