Before You Ship from USA
There is a lot of paperwork that needs to be done before you ship from USA. You will first need to contact the U.S Customs to file your request and send in a Letter of Intent, along with a copy of the following documents:
- Shippers expert declaration
- Vehicle title deed
- Declaration of Vehicle export
- Owner’s passport
Once the vehicle has been shipped, you will need to have a copy of all the documents and requests sent to Algeria before the vehicle delivery is provided. The documents you will need include:
- Original vehicle title
- Valid Car Registration
- Vehicle purchase invoice
- Non- Algerian citizens will need an import license
- 3 copies of non-sale certificate (in French)
Auto Regulations in Algeria
Your vehicle will need to undergo the safety and emissions test. This will need to be completely while the vehicle is in the United States. The foreign manufacturers should provide after sales service and spare parts needs within the thirty days. War veterans and returning citizens are allowed to import vehicles under a separate law. You need to pay higher tax and import duties, if you are importing any vehicle that is less than three years old, as an expat.
Shipping Options from U.S.A
Though sea-freight is used commonly, you have an option of shipping your car by air. This method is the most expensive. Your vehicle will be loaded onto back of an air craft and flown to its destination. Though it is quick, the exorbitant price is a deterrent to most people. There are two sea freight methods that are usually chosen when shipping a vehicle internationally. These are:
- Roll On/ Roll Off - This method of shipping is the most common method of freight shipping. With this method, you are only allowed to ship an empty vehicle apart from other specific restrictions and limitations. Additionally, your vehicle will be driven on to the deck of a ship and harnessed in a pre-allocated bay for the trip. Once the vehicle reaches the port, it will be driven off the ship and released into the customs.
- Container Shipping: This is a more secure way to ship your vehicle. You have the option of shipping your vehicle and any personal belongings that have to be moved within twenty feet or forty feet containers. They are sealed after the requisite goods and vehicle is secured inside. They are then lifted using a crane, unto the ship’s deck or cargo hold.
