Regulations regarding vehicle import from US

The Bahrain custom department laws are easy on imports but are strict about the documentation when shipping your vehicle to Riffa. Some of the paperwork and identification that you need to show includes:

  • Ownership proof or the original title deed
  • Insurance documents
  • Lading bill
  • Sales bill

Personal car imports from USA are completely exempt from the custom levies and other tariffs. However, cars over 8 years old are not allowed in Riffa or any other city in Bahrain. To ensure quick custom clearance, the paperwork and documentation on the vehicle needs to be complete. This will prevent costly delays at the port. Here is a quick list of the major documents that you need to carry:

  • Customs declaration form
  • Clearance certificate and Traffic Technical Inspection
  • Export License plate verification
  • Details of the vehicle as prepared by custom port
  • Delivery order and identification card
  • Insurance documents of the vehicle
  • Bill of lading
  • Custom clearance certificate

Shipping methods

To reach Riffa, the car will be delivered at the Manama port, which is the most prominent port in Bahrain. Though there are different ways to ship your car, the two popular methods of freight shipping are:

  • Roll on-Roll off: This is an extremely cost effective option and the car will roll onto the ship and driven off the ship. You will need to strip the car of personal belongings and it will be secured within the lower decks.
  • Container shipping: Your vehicle is ensconced within the container and there is space for your personal goods that need to be moved to Riffa. The car is secured to reduce movement and minimize damage. Then the container is sealed and will be delivered at the Manama port. Under the purview of the Customs representative, only the owner or authorized representative will be delivered the container.

Shipping process

To ensure smooth import and Custom clearance to Riffa need to prepare the car for shipping and working with an ace global shipping service helps. And that is where A1 Auto Transport service steps in. We will help you walk through the process, get your documents in order and help get the car adhere to the shipping norms. You will need to remove personal belonging from inside the car, if you are using RORO shipping method. That only allows some gas, spare tire and jack to be left within the car, before allowing it to get on the ship. To stall delays, or quarantine at the Bahrain port, thorough cleaning of the car and upholstery is necessary. Get your vehicle checked for all the scratches and dents that it may have. Do not forget to get a certificate regarding the vehicle condition from the authorities as well.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
