Taxes to Pay for Imports.
To assist you in determining how much you will pay for your import, you will need to determine the following:
- Sales tax on imports is levied at a standard rate of 20%.
- Some products are subject to receiving a reduced rate of 7%, 10%, and 14%. This reduction is calculated by the CIF value, the applicable duty, and Parafiscal tax.
- There is not a minimum threshold when shipping to Morocco. Regardless of the value of your shipment, the duty, sales tax, and other charges will determine the amount to pay.

Shipping Methods Available.
Shipping a vehicle is not a small task. There are many different decisions to make along the way that will assist you in making sure your vehicle is transported and taken care of from the time that it leaves the United States to the time it arrives in Oujda. There are two shipping methods that you will need to choose from.
Roll On/ Roll Off shipping method is the most chosen way to ship a vehicle from the United States to Oujda. It is the most affordable way to ship. This method rolls your vehicle onto the ship deck where it will be strapped down in place. Once it reaches the port in Oujda, it will be rolled off and delivered to customs for further processing.
Container Shipping is a method of shipping that protects your vehicle from salt water as well as high winds that may come about when the ship is out to sea and en route. This method costs more because you will need to pay to use the shipping containers provided.
