One of the few countries that need pre-inspection before shipping, Angola has specific requirements for used vehicles. Only vehicles that have been issued the ‘Certificate of Inspection’ from the home country are allowed to be imported. It is essential that you start the process so that your vehicle clears the inspection. Apart from that there is other necessary paperwork that needs to be completed. Some of the important documents include:
- Proof of ownership
- Vehicle Insurance certificate
- Car details including VIN number, make and model
- Shipping terms and conditions
- Importer’s PIP number
- Bill of Lading
- Sales invoice of vehicle

We are familiar with the processes that are needed to be completed when the vehicle has to be shipped. To know more about the specific rules and regulations that need to be followed, contact the Angola Embassy in the U.S or talk with us about the custom details of your vehicle transportation.
As USA and Angola are trading partners and have good relations, it is good to have proper details about the procedures and complete them as needed. To avoid delays, it is best to put the paperwork in order and get the necessary procedures completed. To ensure that there are no delays, it is best that all formalities are completed in time. For an extra layer of protection, you can always get additional insurance to cover the vehicle against collateral damage.
