What’s Involved in the Process of Shipping a Car to the Western Sahara
To ship a car to the Western Sahara, contact the country’s embassy immediately. It is highly recommended that you do this before you schedule a ship date so you can appropriately prepare the vehicle for transport.
You should have a mechanic inspect the car so any leaks can be fixed. Other preparation is required but your transporter will give you this information.
Prior to your automobile boarding the freight ship, it will need to pass an inspection. Typically, this inspection is only done for cars that are not encapsulated. If your vehicle will not be in a container, make sure to remove any personal belongings. Call the South African Embassy to see what restrictions apply to cars entering the country.

Documents Needed for Import Approval.
- Original Bill of Sale.
- Original Title and Registration.
- Drivers License.
- Proof of Paid Duties and Taxes.
- Insurance Coverage.
The documentation necessary for the vehicle’s lawful import into the Western Sahara, as well as the requirements, is subject to change at any time. However, the country is rather relaxed in their policies for vehicle import in comparison to most other countries.
The Cost of Auto Transport.
The way you have your car delivered is the biggest factor in the cost for shipping services. Open air transport services to another country are usually anywhere over a $1,000, whereas enclosed methods can cost well over $3,000. Container transport is higher in price because of the extra space you get inside the container along with the vehicle. You may fill the leftover space with other possessions. This shipping method can be split with another individual to lessen the costs.
