As the country of Uganda develops, many of its citizens want to purchase a car. They find that the easiest and most cost effective way to do that is to have the car imported from another country as opposed to buying it in Uganda.

In general, there are very few restrictions placed on the cars being imported. The car can be new or used, though regulations have been put into place to manage this process. There is no age limit, and both left and right hand drive vehicles are permitted. However, before the car is imported into the country, there are a few guidelines that should be followed.

Cars Imported from Japan.

Most of the cars imported into Uganda come from Japan because there are little to no restrictions on cars that come from Japan. New cars can be imported as is, but used cars will have to undergo more scrutiny before they can be accepted.

Before it can be imported into Uganda, a used car must pass the “Road Worthiness Inspection” conducted by the Japanese Export Vehicle Inspection Center (JEVIC). This test ensures that the vehicle have genuine readings and that the car is in good condition before it arrives in Uganda. Additionally, the test ensures that the car is not hostile to the environment with its emissions.

Tax, Tariffs, and Duties.

The value of the duty instilled on the importing of a used car is determined by the General Agreement on Trade and Tariffs (GATT) method of evaluation. The taxes include an import duty of 15%; value added tax (VAT) of 17% of the VAT value; 2% import commission of dutiable value; withholding tax of 6% of dutiable value; and an excise duty of 10% in select cases.

Required Documents For Shipping A Vehicle To Uganda.

  1. Original bills of lading (that is, shipping permissions)
  2. Inventory in triplicate (that is, a written report of inventory)
  3. The consignee’s original passport.
  4. An invoice for the car.
  5. Car’s original logbook.
  6. Certificate of Roadworthiness.

Land-locked.

Because Uganda is a land-locked country, it will be necessary to use ports nearest to it. You may use either the Port of Mombasa in Kenya or Dar-Es-Salaam in Tanzania in order to import your vehicle to Uganda. There is no cost difference and is merely the importer’s preference.
