Ship Car To Yerevan
Though it is an asset to have your own personal vehicle with you at all times, shipping a car from USA to Yerevan in Armenia can be cumbersome. The main reason is that the region is rugged and mountainous, due to its geographical location in the South Caucasus area.
A popular tourist destination in recent years, Yerevan is one of the world’s oldest cities and the capital of Armenia. It is located on the banks of the Hrazdan River and is the hub of industries, administrative and cultural center of the country. With the advent of rapid urbanization in the past few years, the transportation has improved considerably.

Requirements for Importing Vehicles into Yerevan
Communication is one of the most important aspects of completing the import formalities and as there is limited scope of English in Armenia, it is best to get a copy of the documents translated in Russian or Armenian. Although there has been a growing trend of English as a language of communication, most of the custom officials have limited knowledge. This is another reason to have an experience international shipping service in your corner to override such communication issues.
One of the reasons that shipping is difficult or takes more time is that Armenia is a landlocked country and the nearest port is in Georgia, Turkey, and Russia or in United Arab Emirates. Then it has to be driven down by road or transported by land to Yerevan. This can take a couple of weeks but you can be rest assured that A-1 Auto Transport service will deliver it safely.
There is plenty of documentation that will need to be submitted. At A-1 Auto Transport Company, we will ensure that the vehicle papers are documented and submitted as per format. Here are the necessary documents:
- Bill of sale
- Proof of ownership
- Registration deed
- Owner’s passport copy
- Inspection certificate that certifies working condition and technical details
- Visa for Armenia or residency permit
Additionally, the owner of the vehicle has to be in in the city when your shipment is expected.
Methods of auto shipping
As Yerevan is a landlocked city, the car will be shipped to one of the ports in the nearest country and then driven to Armenia or transported by land. The shipping options are of two types- Roll on/ Roll off (RORO) and the container method. The RORO method is the cheapest and your vehicle is rolled on the car deck ad secured till it is rolled off at the port of delivery. The other method is container shipping where you can enclose your car and other goods within a secured container. This is more expensive. However after it reaches the port, it will transported by road to Yerevan. Custom duties of nearly 30% and other taxes are paid before it is delivered. Check with the Embassy of Armenia in US before shipping the vehicles.
