Ship Car To Riyadh
🇸🇦 Saudi Arabia, (SA)

Riyadh is the capital city of Saudi Arabia and home to more than 5 million residents. Before you have your car imported to Riyadh you need to prepare for driving in the city as it is not what you may accustomed to in the United States. Police checkpoints are set up all throughout the city and you must stop at all checkpoints. You need to make sure that as you approach the checkpoints you do nothing at all that would offend the police who are manning them. Remove sunglasses if you have them on, make sure your windows are rolled completely down, and as soon as an officer approaches the vehicle make sure that you hold your license out of the window so he can see it. You definitely don’t want to risk being detained because you have offended an officer of the law in Riyadh. Most of the roadways are all very modern highways, although driving into some of the secondary neighborhoods you may find missing road signs and rougher terrain for driving. It is very hot in Riyadh and there are a lot of severe dust storms. You will want to make sure that your vehicle is kept very well maintained at all times.

Shipping a Vehicle to Riyadh.

Before you can ship your car to Riyadh you need to hire a professional auto transport company to ship the vehicle for you. The company will know all of the export/import laws pertaining to vehicles being imported into the city and will be able to advise you on mechanical and physical modifications that will need to be done to your vehicle before it is shipped. Your engine and emissions must be checked to make sure they are sufficient for driving in Saudi Arabia as the Government has very strict specifications for automobiles. You will need to provide the transport company with some essential identifying paperwork to begin your transport invoice. Documents such as your driver’s license, social security card, vehicle insurance and title and a Power of Attorney that is signed by you will be needed to begin the process of shipping. They will also have you fill out further paperwork at their discretion and will assist you in choosing how to ship your vehicle overseas. While the transport company will go over regulations for overseas shipping in depth with you, you may also want to check with the Federal Maritime Commission for more information on shipping regulations, licensing and export requirements. Your transporter will detail the types of shipping you can choose from, the cost of shipping and the price of pick-up and delivery to the port in the United States.

How to Ship a Vehicle to Riyadh.

There are two ways to ship a car overseas to Riyadh.

Ro-Ro Shipping- With Ro-Ro Shipping only your vehicle will be allowed on the ship for transport to Riyadh.  This is a simple method of transport and is the most commonly used type. Motor vehicles are rolled onto the carrier at the U.S. exit port and rolled off the carrier when they reach the port that is accessible to Riyadh.

Container Shipping- Shipping in a container allows for added support for your vehicle as well as allows the transport of personal content with your car. Many people use containers to transport classic and luxury vehicles, household goods and personal material when they are relocating overseas.

Customs in Riyadh.

One thing to know prior to having your vehicle shipped to Riyadh is that you must apply for a Certificate of Conformity and have it to present to customs officials as soon as the vehicle arrives at the customs checkpoint. Officials will first need you to give them the proper paperwork for your importation. Some of the paperwork includes:

  • Saudi Sponsor Letter of Authorization.
  • Vehicle Title and Registration.
  • Proof of Vehicle Ownership.
  • Bill of Sale or Commercial Invoice.
  • Import Permit that must be obtained from the Ministry of External Affairs and must be approved before importing the vehicle.
  • Certificate of Conformity.
  • Certificate from Interpol that shows the vehicle has not been involved in an accident or crime.
  • Passport .
  • Proof of Vehicle Insurance showing valid in Saudi Arabia.
  • Copy of your Saudi Driver’s License.
  • Copy of your Residence Permit.

Your name must match precisely on every document provided. You will have to pay import duties of 5% of the cost, insurance and freight (CIF) value that is assessed by the customs agent that inspects your vehicle. All cars imported to Riyadh must adhere to the motor vehicle standards of Saudi Arabia and must be within four years of the date of manufacture at the time of importation. You must also register your vehicle in Saudi Arabia as soon as it is imported and this must be completed through the Traffic Police Office of Riyadh.

For more information on importing your vehicle to Riyadh, local laws and Saudi Arabia traffic standards, you may contact the Saudi Arabia Embassy in Washington, DC prior to shipping the vehicle overseas.
