Importing a Car to Sharjah, UAE

Sharjah is the seat of the emirate of the United Arab Emirates and has a population of more than 800,000 residents. Sharjah covers several towns including Kalba, Khor Fakkan and Dibba Al-Hisn. When you need to import your car into Sharjah, you will find that Sharjah has fairly lenient import regulations for motor vehicles. You will need to hire a reputable auto transport company to ship the car overseas for you and you will need to provide documents and adhere to the policies set forth by both the auto transport company as well as Customs in Sharjah. Sharjah has three major shipping ports. Port Khalid, Khor Fakkan and Hamriyah Free Zone. These three shipping ports along with the Sharjah International Airport which has five cargo terminals make shipping an easy process to do.

*Prices and times are estimated. They can vary depending on the season and the type of vehicle.

*Save the ground transport cost by delivering the vehicle to the nearest port.

*Allow an additional 10 days to process the documents.

*Prices are for 1 car in a dedicated 20ft container. This is the safest and most reliable way to transport a vehicle internationally. Other items may be included in the container to help save you money when moving.

*Using the RoRo (roll on, roll off) method is less expensive and shipments can be completed in fewer days. Contact us now for a free RoRo quote.

You will have to provide specific documents to the shipping agent prior to shipping your car internationally. Unlike shipping throughout the United States, there are strict rules with shipping overseas. Your transport agent will require the following:

  • Driver’s License
  • Social Security Card
  • Title and Registration to the car
  • Automobile Insurance
  • Power of Attorney (signed)

They may also need further documentation and will be able to discuss that in detail when you speak to them. Your auto transport agent can make arrangements to pick your car up in the United States and deliver it to the Major Shipping Port where your car will be shipping to Sharjah. They can also arrange to have your car picked up and delivered to you when it reaches Sharjah if you have not already made arrangements or plan to pick the car up from the port in person.

Import Regulations Set Forth by Sharjah Customs

You will want to make sure that you are aware of the essential rules for clearance through Customs in Sharjah when importing your car. The following are required documents that customs officials will require for importing your car:

  • Original Bill of Lading (BL) The bill must include the make, model, chassis and engine number, color, and type of car. (Car, Truck, SUV, Van)
  • Original Bill of Sale or a Commercial Invoice
  • UAE resident Visa copy page (Must be endorsed on Passport)
  • Passport
  • Name of car title must match name on passport
  • Car condition report that will be given at the loading port in the United States
  • Original Title to Car

All cars imported to Sharjah must be left-hand drive only and a customs duty of 5% of the total vehicle value must be paid. The value will be assessed by Customs. Imported cars need to be five years old or less. Classic cars can often be excluded from the age of vehicle but that will have to be approved by the technical check-up committee. The Road Transport Authority will have to perform a physical check of the car to approve it to be driven on the roadways in Sharjah. All imported cars must pass an emissions test and carbon dioxide has to be 3.5% or lower to pass. Your auto shipping agent will be able to give you full details of what you will need to complete prior to shipping as they have full experience with regulations and laws pertaining to international shipping. You may also want to contact the United Arab Emirates Embassy in Washington, DC for further information or concerns you may have.

Before You Import Your Car to Sharjah

Before your car even reaches the shipping port in the United States to be shipped to Sharjah, you will need to have a finalized price quote from the agent that will detail what you must pay both prior to shipping as well as upon receiving the car when it reaches the port in Sharjah. There are instances when your car will need to be detailed and steam cleaned before shipping is allowed and your agent will discuss this with you if this is a necessary requirement for the choice of shipping that you decide to utilize. Your agent will go over the total cost of shipping with you. You will also be provided with details of the different ways to ship a car internationally. These include:

  • Ro-Ro Shipping- Ro-Ro Shipping simply means that your car is rolled (driven) aboard the cargo ship and rolled (driven) off when it reaches the entry port in Sharjah. Ro-Ro Shipping is the least expensive as well as the quickest way to ship via the sea internationally. Your car will need to be emptied of any personal items or paperwork for the voyage. Any other details that will need to be taken care of before shipping will thoroughly discuss with your shipping agent.
  • Container Cargo Shipping- Shipping your car in a container that is loaded onto a cargo ship is convenient when you have household and personal items that need to ship internationally with your car. Container shipping will take a small amount of time longer than shipping with Ro-Ro due to Customs clearance of not only the car but with other items that may inside the container as well as Customs having to remove the containers in order to inspect the contents when performing checks. Even with the extra time needed during shipping, shipping via container is very beneficial when you need your household and personal items shipped as well.
  • Air Shipping- Shipping by air is the absolute fastest way to have your car with you in Sharjah. Your car will be loaded onto a cargo plane in the Unites States and flown to a cargo terminal at the Sharjah International Airport where you will be able to pick it up, have it cleared through customs and be on your way as quickly as possible.

You will also want to check with your current Automobile Insurance Company and find out if you have International Shipping Coverage on your policy. If you don’t already have international shipping coverage it is usually included in your quote from the shipping company.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

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.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
