The most common way to determine the amount to pay is to base it on the vehicles model however unfortunately the vehicles are not always registered. The Kenya Bureau of Standards A vehicle cannot be imported if it’s over 8-years old. The engine capacity is another way to determine the value of the vehicle.

  • You must be at least eighteen years old
  • You cannot have obtained permission to be exempt before

Methods of Vehicle Shipment to Kenya

It’s important that you make sure that you are there at customs to pick up your vehicle when it has cleared. If you can’t be there, you can send power of attorney with your shipping agent. You can choose from two main shipping options.

Roll On/ Roll Off shipping which is not always accepted at all ports but it is the most affordable way to ship. It will require a little more prep work to get it ready for transport in order to avoid being quarantined. You will need to clean the vehicle inside and out and leave only the car jack, the spare tire, and the floor mats. Container shipping is another option which is more expensive but it does protect the vehicle while in transit.
