US Customs Clearance.
The process is going to start at the U.S Customs and the Algerian Customs Authority also has to have the required documents:
- Copy of the title.
- Owner’s passport copy.
- Shippers expert declaration.
- Vehicle export declaration.
Once the vehicle is shipped you would have to provide proof of ownership as well as other documents which are related before you can take your car and they include:
- Original title and registration.
- Purchase invoice.
- Non-sale certificate in 3 separate copies.
- Import license for non-Algerian citizens.
The applicable VAT is 17% and the customs duty is levied at 1% to 30% depending upon the vehicle’s evaluated price and other shipping charges. Thus you can calculate the total cost of shipping the vehicle by adding the freight charges and import duties.
You can choose between two particular shipping methods to Algeria. Irrespective of the method you select, they are affordable and convenient.
- Roll On/Roll Off – this would allow you to ship your vehicle quickly and conveniently and for the smallest amount of money. However, the car would be exposed to the elements and you won’t be able to ship other belongings besides it. It has to contain only a car jack, floor mats, and your spare tire.
- Container Shipping – this method is more appropriate if you have a luxury car or a collectible one as it’s going to be safely stored within a private container. You can choose between a 20ft and 40ft container based on your demands and preferences and if the price is too steep you can go ahead and share it with someone else to cut it in half.
