Pertinent information on importing to Jamaica.

With amicable relationship between the two countries, shipping your vehicle to Jamaica is comparatively easy especially when you work with an experienced shipping service such as A1 Auto Transport Company. However, the shipping agent will work with you at every step to ensure the transportation of the vehicle is completed with ease. Before importing your vehicle to Jamaica, you need to have the tax registration number as a pre-requisite to importing the vehicle. We will help you apply at the Jamaican Tax Administration. This is needed even before you can book the shipment on a freight carrier.

Additionally you are not allowed to sell the vehicle for at least 12 months after import and if there has been damage to the vehicle while it was being imported or after the import you won’t be able to sell the vehicle for at least three years.

The best way to ship your vehicle to Portmore is through Roll-on/Roll-Off. Your vehicle will be driven on the ship deck, harnessed in the parking bay and then driven off at the Port of Kingston. It has to be shipped completely empty and only floor mats, extra tire and car jack can be kept inside. You have to remove the air conditioning gas also.

Documents for legally importing car.

Legal verification and authentication is necessary when importing a vehicle in Jamaica. Jamaican Customs require that these following documents are submitted at least a week in advance before the vehicle arrives at the port. These are:

  • Import license.
  • Tax registration number.
  • Vehicle title deed.
  • Bill of sale.
  • Tax compliance certificate.
  • Ownership proof- passport driving license.
  • Insurance on the vehicle.
  • Bill of Lading.

It is important that all tax certificates and documents are in order. It is important to check the Jamaican Customs website to get further details of the eligibility and requirements. There are taxes and duties that have to be cleared and Jamaican Customs levies 67% custom duty on all vehicles. However, if the cost of the vehicle is high, the duty will increase accordingly.

It is important that the vehicle that you intend importing cannot be over 4 years old. If you are a returning citizen coming back to Portmore in Jamaica after three years, you are allowed to import two vehicles. Your U.S issued driving license is valid for 1-year in Jamaica and after that you will need to get the Jamaican license. It is important that you buy the local insurance from a Jamaican insurance on the vehicle before you drive in Portmore.
