Ship Car To Tarawa
๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ฎ Kiribati, (KI)

The capital of Kiribati islands, Tarawa is a populated atoll that has a lot in common with other Gilbertsโ€™ group islands. Azure blue seas and sunny beaches are a crowd-puller but if you intend going here on an extended stay or have a work permit, it makes a lot of sense to import your car from USA when you move.

When you are covered by the expertise of A1 Auto Transport service, it is easy to import your vehicle to Kiribati. We will work with you through the complete process starting from documentation and preparing the vehicle for shipping to receiving the car at the Port of Tarawa.

To start with, after you decide to expert the vehicle to Tarawa, you need to send a Letter of Intent to U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency so that they can process the documents before the vehicle is shipped out from the domestic U.S. port.

When you work with our company, we ensure that we not only help you with the procedures but assist you in picking your vehicle from your doorstep and delivering it at a port in US while one of our local shipping agents will be there to assist you. They will work with you to ensure that the vehicle clears customs with ease and you get the delivery. If you cannot be there, they will represent you and get the necessary things done.

As Kiribati has tropical weather all through the year, it is best to avoid the monsoon season as there is a threat of cyclones and storms which can lead to delays in delivery.

Regulations on vehicle imports.

As Tarawa is the major port, the vehicle will be directly shipped here. However one of the important considerations of having your vehicle shipped is completing the documentation. The Kiribati Customs Service (KCS) requires the following documents:

  • Registration documents and vehicle title deed.
  • S. Insurance proof.
  • Import Entry Form for assessment of taxes.
  • Bill of sales listing VIN, make, model, engine and chassis numbers, year of manufacture.
  • Bill of Lading.
  • Emission reports.

It takes about 7 days to receive your vehicle due to the Custom clearance procedures which includes clearing the import taxes and related fees. Only then it is given to the owner. The basis of the duty which is levied includes the length, size and weight of the vehicle, its evaluated value and vehicle insurance. You will need the Import form to be filled by the shipping service and as you are the owner, your signatures are needed. The copies of the permit are required by the warehouse, customs department, shipping service and one copy by the owner.

Opt for the right method.

Before the vehicle is shipped, there are some regulations to adhere to so that there are no delays at the Kiribati port. These include steam cleaning the vehicle from inside, removing the air conditioning gas, emptying out all personal belongings and ensuring that no or little fuel remains in the tank.

You have the option of sending the vehicle by RORO or Container shipping. However, if you have an expensive vehicle like a luxury car, vintage vehicle or additional household goods to Tarawa, then it is best to ship by container shipping. Your vehicle will be put within a large sized container and secured in place to minimize any movement during transit. This is more expensive due to the exclusivity as the protection for the household goods and vehicle is higher.

Roll-on/Roll-Off is good if you just have a vehicle to ship as it is driven on the ship deck, harnessed in place and then driven off at the Port of Tarawa. If you need more information on the shipping process, new laws or need clarifications, connect with the Embassy of Kiribati to get the details.
