Having a personal automobile shipped to the country is actually simple. Niger doesn’t require too much when it comes to having a vehicle imported. Unfortunately, the roadways aren’t modernized and regular vehicle maintenance will be necessary.

There is very little required for importation of a vehicle from the U.S. It is mostly standardized documentation.

The Two Types of Shipping for Vehicles
There are two main forms of importation of vehicles into Niger. Either of these methods are reliable and safe. Considering what will be best for the personal vehicle, and whether or not other belongings are needing to be shipped will help the owner to make a sound decision.
The container method is slightly more costly than that of the RO/RO shipping method, but it allows the owner of the vehicle to fill the vehicle with other belongings permitted by Niger Customs. The container can be filled with possessions as well. If container shipping is the method chosen, the cost can be split with another person if shared.
The RO/RO shipping method is also referred to as the roll on, roll off method. This means that the vehicle is driven onto the ship during departure, and then driven off at the time of arrival into Niger. RO/RO shipping will require that the vehicle is completely empty other than the floor mats, a car jack and a spare tire. The cost of this method is cheaper than any other possible methods.
