Shipping Methods

There are two methods that you can choose from when it comes to your relocation to Sri Lanka and they include:

  • RORO: Roll-on/Roll-off method which gets your car driven on the shipping deck on the freight ship and driven off at Sri Lanka. It’s the most preferred method as it’s the cheapest way. You can’t carry any personal belongings and you are required to remove all the removable additions of your car.
  • Container Shipping – you get to choose between a 20ft and 40ft container which stores your car and all of your belongings. That’s why this method is more expensive.
Import Guidelines for Sri Lanka

There are certain aspects and regulations as per of Sri Lankan Customs Department that you might want to take into account. You can’t take the car when you travel out of the country and there shouldn’t be any mortgages or lease agreements. You can’t use your own funds to purchase a vehicle and you have to submit all the associated documents with your vehicle.
