Ship Car To Tamale
🇬🇭 Ghana, (GH)

One of the fastest developing cities in West Africa, Tamale in Ghana is the capital city of the Northern Region of Ghana. It is the third biggest city of Ghana and is situated about 360 miles from Accra.

If you are doing business with Ghana or have other personal reasons to move here temporarily or for a longer stay, it is in your best interest to have your vehicle imported to Tamale.

With poor condition of roads and badly managed public transportation, having your personal vehicle allows you to commute at your pace. Additionally, language barriers and currency conversions don’t become an obstacle.

When you start the process of freight shipping your vehicle across to Ghana from USA, there are plenty of key aspects to consider. This includes having an international shipper by your side to ensure that all procedures and documents are in order. At A1 Auto Transport service, we’d like to help you move your vehicle across without any hassle as we have been shipping vehicles to different African countries and understand all procedures properly.

You will need to select the port of departure from USA. Based on the city where you reside currently. To ensure that the vehicle is delivered there, you have the option of driving it to the port on your own, or you can avail our pick and drop services. However, these will be added to the expenses on the shipping bill.

Laws on vehicle import.

The age of the vehicle is essential consideration when the customs declarations are made. The rate of Home Delivery value (HDV) is calculated on the age of the vehicle which is then used by the Ghana Revenue Authority. It is essential to be aware that vehicles over the age of 10 years will draw a heavy penalty above the regular import duties, as it is over age. Here is a quick look at the import duties and taxes that are applicable, based on the valued price of the car, the freight and insurance charges, usually termed as CIF.

  • Import duty on vehicles is 5-20%
  • EDIF tax is 0.5%
  • VAT is 12.5% of the import duty and CIF.
  • ECOWAS development tax is 5%
  • Inspection fee is 1%
  • Health insurance levy of 5%

Requirements to ship.

Additionally, the length and weight of the car is essential when you are shipping it by RORO as you pay by the space that your vehicle occupies. When shipping to Ghana, it is important to know all of the rules so that there is no reason for delays or penalties. Additionally, there are shipping requirements that you need to cater to. You are required to show proof of ownership and purchase bill to the U.S Customs before the vehicle is allowed to be exported.

It is important that the vehicle is in your name and that is only possible when there is no lien on the vehicle. However if there is a lien and you still need to ship the vehicle, you are required to produce a notarized authority letter from the lien holder that gives you permission to ship the vehicle  to Tamale, Ghana.

All imports require proper documentation at the port of exit i.e. USA and at the port of import i.e. in Accra or at Tema in Ghana. These documents include:

  • Driver license.
  • Registration.
  • Proof of insurance.
  • Passport.
  • Insurance certificate.
  • Bill of Lading.
  • Title deed.
  • Import permits (if applicable)
  • Emission certificate.

You might need to get a written quote before you proceed with the shipment procedure. However, selecting the method of freight shipping plays an integral part in costing of the international auto shipment. You can pick any of the two methods of container shipping or RORO and let us know so we can provide a free quote on vehicle shipment to Ghana.
