About Vehicle Shipping to Burma
When shipping a vehicle from the United States to Burma, you may be surprised by how easy this process really is. You will need to pay duties and taxes but can seem very high but if you are a diplomat, you are allowed to ship your car tax and duty free. Taxes can run as high as 300% of the value of the vehicle. You should also know that only left hand drive vehicles are allowed in this country. However, it is important to adhere to all rules and regulations as per Myanmar Revenue Department. Both the U.S Customs and Burma Customs require several documents in order to complete your transaction. These documents include:
- Proof of residency in Burma
- Your current driver’s license
- Your current passport
- Keep all the receipts showing where you paid duties and taxes
- Bill of Lading
- Inspection Certification
- Commercial invoice
- Export Certification
- Proof of auto insurance
This may seem like a lot of paperwork, it really isn’t that complex. Your vehicle can be shipped to Burma, with the assistance of A1 Auto Transport Service.

Methods of Shipping
There are two types of shipping options to choose from. The first one is the Roll On/ Roll Off method which is the most affordable and the most chosen method of shipping. With this method, our vehicle will need to be cleaned completely both inside and out. The only items that can be left inside the vehicle include the car jack, the spare tire, and floor mats. If you choose container shipping, you will choose from a 20 or 40 foot container. This container will be more expensive but you can bring your personal items with you when you come.
