In case, you are planning to move here permanently or even on temporary basis, you might be looking forward to having your vehicle imported from USA. However, there are specific regulations that you need to adhere to.
This was a decree which was issued back in 2008 of December and it is currently in effect – it was issued in response to the country which was flooded with old and used vehicles from other countries. This caused a huge environmental impact and that’s why the decree was enacted. You are not allowed to import of vehicles which are older than four years of age. Bolivia bans trucks, buses as well as certain commercial vehicles which are older than six years. You will need to consider all of these key aspects before you plan on importing your vehicle from USA.

Now, it’s important to note that Bolivia doesn’t have a coastline and that’s why the car can’t get shipped directly to the country. However, the most likely destination is Arica or Iquique that is both Chilean ports – the country is Bolivia’s western neighbor. The shipping company has to be well aware of this and as such it’s going to make the arrangements accordingly. You will still have to arrange for the vehicle to be transported to the departure port in the USA. This is going to depend on the region of the country that you are living in. If you drive your vehicle to the departure point on your own, you will be able to save some money on the overall cost of the transit. This is particularly convenient and it needs to be considered.
You will also need to determine whether you will be using RORO or container shipping. This is an important choice because it will have an overall impact on the total cost as well. The reason is quite logical – RORO shipping requires an open-carrier which is going to be a lot cheaper than an enclosed container where your car is thoroughly protected. As such, you need to make this choice before you want to get an adequate quote from the shipping service – it’s impossible to get one before that.
How Much Does Car Shipping Cost?
In the majority of the cases you can pay between $2200 and $4600 to ship a regular sized vehicle from the US to Montero in Bolivia. However, additional costs could be applied, if you go for premium services such as door-to-door shipping, which is usually going to cost you an additional $500 to $1000.
Apart from the cost, you will need to ensure that all of the requisite documents are submitted properly. Both the U.S Customs and the Bolivia Revenue Authority will need a set each. You are needed to submit a set of the documents at least 3 days before your vehicle will leave the U.S port and in Bolivia, the documents have to be validated a week before the vehicle reaches the port. The required documents include:
- Title deed
- Description of the vehicle
- Certificate of origin
- Technical report
- Invoice of purchase
- Proof of insurance
- Proof of ownership
As import laws change frequently, it is important that you contact the Embassy of Bolivia before shipping your vehicle. They will be able to advice you about the current updates and laws. Additionally, you can call A1 Auto Transport and we’ll be able to assist you with it.
