Wotje is a coral atoll made out of 75 islands set in the Pacific Ocean and it is forming a legislative district of the Marshall Islands called the Ratak Chain. The Wotje’s land area is 8.18 square kilometers and it is known to be one of the largest islands in the Marshall Islands.
Wotje is the legislative district of the Marshall Islands and it has narrow strips of land which are usually highly populated. Regardless of whether you are here to work or study, it’s definitely beneficial to have your own vehicle. However, you may know that vehicles will require a lot of maintenance because of the proximity to the sea. Using the A1 Auto Transport service is definitely going to help you out as we have over 20 years of shipping experience on an international scale.
You may be updated on the requirements which are set forth for shipping your vehicle to the island of Wotje. You can discuss these details with the representative of the A1 Auto Transport or you can contact the Embassy of the Marshal Islands in Washington, D.C. to get any further information. However, you would be required to submit some important documentation such as:
- Ownership proof- License, passport.
- Title deed.
- Registration documents.
- Commercial invoice.
- Bill of Lading.
- Insurance policy.
- Proof of residency or work visa.
There are various taxes and duties of import that you’d need to clear when you import your vehicle. One of our representatives will be able to assist you with the requirements. It’s important to know that the road conditions aren’t exactly good so following the driving regulations is incredibly important.
The Customs and Excise department is going to help you out with determining the taxes and the duties and you may familiarize yourself with the local driving regulations. Vehicles that arrive at Wotje have to be licensed. You may know that your car’s weight is going to be deciding for the payment of the taxes. The average charge is about $35 but you also have to get it inspected every single year. Once you get it licensed you would get a sticker issued. You have to carry liability insurance and the minimum coverage is going to be about $200.
Ro/Ro shipping – this is by far the quickest shipping method and the cheapest one. You are going to simply drive your car on to the freight ship and get it back at the receiving point. This is generally the most preferred option.
Container Shipping – you are going to pack the personal items and the vehicle inside the container. It is preferred if you want to transfer any other personal belongings along with your car. Additionally, in case you are shipping a luxury vehicle or a classic or vintage car, the additional security that it offers is a bonus. The container is sealed shut and only opened at the last port of destination.
