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.

Note: All of the inspections mentioned above are to be performed by the country of export of the vehicle. Most vehicles that arrive in Uganda come from Japan, but other countries will have to follow similar guidelines when importing into the country.

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

Best Car Shipping Company 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.
  7. Tax ID number.

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.

For more information about the process of importing vehicles into Uganda, please visit The Uganda Revenue Authority’s website.

Shipping Methods Available to Those Shipping Heavy Equipment through A1

The kind of heavy or oversized equipment you have will ultimately determine which transport methods are available for your particular shipping needs. When you describe your equipment to our representatives over the phone when you call to inquire and schedule, we will inform you of your options and what we feel is best for your cargo’s transport to Uganda. Read below if you want some insight as to what our overseas shipping services are.

  • LoLo or Lift On/Lift Off Transport- With a crane we safely lift your heavy equipment onto the ship using a crane. The cargo is lifted off the ship with a crane once it reaches port in or near Uganda.
  • RoRo or Roll On/Roll Off Transport- Not every port accepts cargo shipped through this method of transport so ground transport methods may also be necessary to complete the delivery. However, this is the cheapest shipping method and it is only offered to those with operable equipment and vehicles.
  • Container Shipping- As the most expensive of your options, this method offers the most protection as long as your heavy cargo fits in a 40ft shipping container.
  • Flat Rack Shipping- This open air service secures your cargo to a metal frame before it is placed on the ship for its shipping process to Uganda.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
