Tanga is a densely populated, port city of Tanzania and is the regional headquarters of Tanga district. It’s amongst the largest cities in Tanzania with a large population.  The city is located on the shores of the Indian Ocean near the Kenyan border.

If you intend to relocate here for work or if you want to study, importing your car here from USA might seem like a good idea. The city has a large road network and it is easy to commute as well as to enjoy the beauty of the city. Public transport is also available but the convenience suffers in comparison. If you intend on being here for an extended period of stay, it would be cost effective and allows you more freedom to travel on your own.

Options of freight shipment.

Of the two common methods of shipment on ocean bound freight ships, RORO and container shipping will suit your requirements for vehicle transportation internationally. Of course, RORO is going to cost you significantly less than container shipping but then again you wouldn’t get the same amount of convenience out of it. You can ship a lot of personal belongings along with your vehicle with container shipping – this is why it’s more expensive – because of the private container you are entitled to. However, you can cut the expenses in half if you share the container with someone else.

As there is no limit on the age of the vehicle that you are importing, you can import any vehicle. However, those vehicles over the age of 10 years are subjected to particularly higher taxes. This is why these sorts of things have to be edged out in advance with your shipping agent. The vehicle has to undergo emission and roadworthiness test in order to get customs clearance and permit. If you fail it, you would have to go for certain modifications.

There is a 250% import duty on the imported vehicles, while there is an additional tax of 10% to 20% charged as VAT tax.  Working with an experienced shipping agency like the A1 Auto Transport ensures that all regulations are followed and the complete shipping experience is made easy.

Documents Required.

As per the customs department in U.S and Tanzania, you are required to submit documents in advance, if you want to ship to Tanga in Tanzania. These are:

  • Driver’s License.
  • Original Purchase Bill.
  • Title Deed.
  • Owner’s Passport.
  • Insurance.

Furthermore, the quote that A1 Auto Transport will provide will be based on the shipping method that you select and other factors which were mentioned above. In any case, if you have any further questions, you can go ahead and connect with the Embassy of Tanzania in USA.
