As Mongolia is a landlocked country, shipping a vehicle to the country requires a few extra steps to the process. In most cases when you need to ship their automobile to another country, they do so by sea. You have two choices when dealing with ocean carriers and can pay for the roll on roll service which involves driving the vehicle onto the ship, securing it in place, and transporting it this way. Usually, with this method, no other belongings can be shipped with it. The other method of transportation would be through container shipment.
This involves loading the vehicle into a secured container, along with any other belongings that you wish to go with your car, and shipping it to Mongolia this way. Because Mongolia is a landlocked country the shipment is going to have to arrive at one of the designated ports, be loaded onto a truck or flatbed and continue its journey to Mongolia from there.

Transportation from ports in China
In most cases, the automobile is shipped to one of two ports in China: Tianjin or Qingdao. From one of these ports, the shipment will then be moved, via trucking, to Mongolia. The cargo will be delivered to a designated port inland and then it will be left to the responsibility of the consignee to handle arrangements for final delivery. There are basic documents that will be required for this process to run smoothly.
Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Mongolia
- Bill of Sale
- List of inventory (vehicle features list)
- Proof that you have owned the car for at least 6 months
- Ocean bill of lading
Requirements for exporting car to Mongolia
These papers are used to determine that the car is legally your responsibility and that you have the legal right to transport it where you want. It is necessary to show proof of the value of the car and any other items that you are shipping with it (this is for insurance purposes and tax reasons). As per the shipping requirements, delivery needs to be as per the Ocean Bill of Lading at the ports.
Taxes and duties will be determined based on the resident status of the individual who is shipping the automobile. Due to Mongolia being a land-locked country you will also need to procure authorization to transport your vehicle by land across the Chinese border to Mongolia.
Expect to be stopped at multiple checkpoints. There will also likely be separate fees for the inland transportation. When shipping an automobile from another country you will have two points of contact: China and Mongolia. Because shipping regulations are always changing be sure to contact the local consulates to determine exactly what you need to do to legally and securely ship your automobile to Mongolia.
Shipping an automobile from one place to another can be time-consuming and will involve a lot of paperwork and red tape. Start the process as soon as you know you are moving, especially if it is a foreign country. This will help things run more smoothly and will save you both some time and stress in completing the process. As long as you have all of the necessary paperwork filed and the documents presented you will have no problem getting your automobile from point A to Mongolia.
